FLEETING PORT FINISH (SERIE O)
light, fruity and delicat - D O U B L E M A T U R A T I O N
Elevated with Pipa de Porto Blanc FLEETING O is a single malt whisky raisend for 10 years in Pucheon and 7 years in pipa white port of 35 years. Bottled at its natural degree, without filtration, its texture is very unctuous, with no feeling of alcohol thanks to its age. It presents slightly toasted fragrances that can remind old Tawnies, with great drinkability. A very elegant rancio gives it a lot of freshness.
It is elegant, delicate, subtle. On the palate, silky, very sweet, it is very complex and persistent in the mouth.

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.
