BLOSSOMING AULD SHERRIED
spicy, warm and honey - I T M A K E S Y O U F E E L G O O D
Image of whisky, Michel Couvreur likes to produce since the «Anno Domini Whisky» proposed in 2000. Fabulous demonstration of a whisky matured in a very impregnated sweet PX Sherry cask. Its label does not indicate the time spent in wood because the whisky’s maturity is reached differently in every cask. Age is only one of the complex factors on which maturation depends. Blossoming Auld Sherried is the perfect demonstration of sherry impregnated wood’s greatest significance.
Fragrances of Sherry, flowers, vanilla, dried fruits. Mellow, and long in the mouth. A fabulous balance between sherry’s warmth and the fresh flavours only barley can produce.
To be preferably consumed after diner at room temperature (17 to 18°C).
The best companion for winter peaceful evenings with a piece of dark chocolate.

About the producer
Michel Couvreur whisky’s style is acquired by years of long contact with Sherry or other different impregnated wine casks. Now to what makes them so unique: the cellars. Tucked away in a little village, Bouze-lès- Beaune, halfway between Andalusia and Scotland, they look like a cave which is 15 metres deep with some 150 metres of galleries dug in limestone but giving humidity, silence, calm and depth. A choice of cask and a delicate dance of maturation between dry and damp places, Michel Couvreur whiskies are incredibly
flavourful, intense and soft all at the same time. Style and nobility are acquired following many years of ageing.
What makes Michel Couvreur’s Whiskies so special is not the distilled base product but the choice of barrels they have been selecting. They keep a very special attention to the choice of barrel, spending a lot of time and money looking for the most unique barrels down all over Europe.
