Rare Single Malt Whisky ~ Very Sherried 25 y.o. ~ 45% ~ 500mL

Classic old school single malt whisky from Michel Couvreur was matured for more than 20 years in sweet PX cask. Dark amber robe and ruby reflections. Vanilla, almond, and sherry flavors with fascinating tropical-style sensuality and intense silky texture. Extremely complex and concentrated, where 1cL per balloon glass may procure 15 minutes of ecstasy. With the same kind of maturation as Blossoming Auld Sherried, its color appears to be more “burned," keeping a nice reddish reflection. Its old single cask maturation may give an impression that it’s uneasy to drink, but when poured on glass, it opens a mellow and delicious balance between flavors. Powerful but not aggressive. Absolutely tender.

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.
