The Golan Heights Malt Whisky Single Cask #16 (Cabernet Sauvignon)
I mentioned on one of Roy's amazing Thursday night Live YouTube streams that I was drinking the Golan Heights Single Cask #16 and I had a lot of questions from the live comments forum, particularly about Angels' share and maturation rates here in Israel. Roy saw the conversation and commented that he'd love to get hold of sample to taste it live in a future vlog. As it happened I had given my father a bottle for a birthday present while my parents were visiting us in Israel and they plus the bottle were now back in Essex, England. The next day I called my father and asked him if he could send Roy a sample through the post. Sure enough within a few days a package arrived in at Roy's door in Glasgow. (Thanks Dad, you are amazing!). Roy sent me an email informing me that he had received it and that he was planning to review it next Thursday night. I have nothing to do with the distillery but felt so nervous with butterflies in my stomach, feeling as if this whisky sample was representing the pride of Israel. I was so frightened he would take a sip and pass it over without a comment, or even worse, belittle it.
Well, I was simply delighted when he raved over it that night and even sent me an email saying how much he enjoyed it. Israeli Whisky is now on the map!
