Rare Single Malt Whisky ~ Fleeting Q ~ 54% ~ 500mL

Made from a historic variety of barley (Golden Promise) that produces spirits with great complexity, this single malt whisky from Michel Couvreur was matured in Colheita pipes that smell powerfully of a Ruby's fruitiness and the complexity of a Tawny Port. 10 years of ageing has resulted to spicy flavors and an incredible rancio offering a very elegant finish. To keep its energy and concentration, it was bottled at natural strength of approximately 54%. The bottling has been made on February 3, 2021, obtaining only 2000 bottles and 12 magnums.

Michel Couvreur

Michel Couvreur had a very personal, and truly revolutionary vision of what whisky should be: more than terroir, more than the distiller’s touch, it was the maturing in oak casks that truly helped the grain spirit become whisky. From 1978 on, having settled in the French region of Burgundy, he decided to make it his life’s work and to dedicate his research to a process which he once compared to cross-fertilisation.

Michel Couvreur passed away in 2013; his son-in-law Cyril Deschamps and his cellar master Jean-Arnaud Frantzen, with the invaluable help of Michel’s devoted wife Marthe and his daughter Alexandra, follow to the letter the philosophy and the motto of the house: Virtute et Opera.
