PALE SINGLE SINGLE
floral, fine and subtle - T H E I N T R O V E R T
Different whisky than Michel Couvreur used to purpose, Sherry influence being more discret and Fino Sherry casks make whiskies iodine and floral. Pale colour because of the nature and impregnations of casks.
Nervous, fruity and slightly iodised, but free from woodastrengency. Subtle and long in the mouth. Timid, it needs time to open, its delicate elegance has to be relished. An appearance of fragility behind a fabulous length.
Good companion of cheeses like Epoisses

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.
