spicy, iodine, proof tabacco - A C I G A R C O M P A N I O N
We like Blended Malt Whiskies because it’s the good balance quest. The Special Vatting is composed by a spicy and Amontillado matured malt whisky with a younger, more peated, more iodised, which gives powerfull and fresh flavors.
Complexity and balance are reached thanks to a third single malt, very fine and subtle. Spicy and warm flavors from oxydative Sherry are enhanced by peated and iodised fresh malts. Sherry, leather, tabaco and dried flowers are its feature flavors. Silky texture, nice length and proof makes it very complex.

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.
