Like A “Clearach” Bottled At Its Natural Strength
The Intravagan’Za is a single malt spirit distilled in Scotland and matured between 2 and 3 years in wine fresh sherry casks. A young spirit, soft and round, it’s bottled at its natural strength 50% alcohol by volume.
Limpid gold amber tint. Typical to very young malts with almonds and frangipane (red jasmine) fragrance, nice grassy freshness with a slight touch of honey and wood. Lively and sharp in the mouth, its maturation in wine casks, despite its young age, it reveals some silky elegance. Unctuous tastes, reminding the spirit of pear which become finer and very floral enhanced by a note of smoke.
Serve chilled when it’s warm, you’ll feel more of its complexity
Very nice as a «Trou Normand», a pause between dishes in a multi-course meal

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.
