OVERAGED MALT WHISKY
smooth, tabaco, freshful elegance - T H E R E F E R E N C E
The inevitable: elegance and nice balance. Vatting of single malts aged between 12 and 27 years in oak casks and resulting from a cognac (double) distillation method with a mash exclusively made of Malt (germinated barley). It has been reduced to 43% alcohol by volume.
Fragrance of dried flowers, flaxen tobacco, sherry wine, fat almond, a little smoked. Fruity, powerful and long in the mouth. Aimed at a balance between new pure young malts and fathomless maturity of older ones.
End of mouth: sherry roundness enhanced by a slightly smoked. Fabulous nice balance between the nervous young single malts and the mellow olders.
To be preferably consumed chilled.

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.
