Enter the magical world of Michel Couvreur's whiskies!

The SPECIAL VATTING PEATY MALT WHISKY is a blend of three single malts over 12 years old. Its backbone is made up of - a very mature and concentrated whisky (generally in Oloroso casks) - a younger, more iodized and peaty whisky a younger, more iodized and peaty whisky, which brings freshness and more expression - and a third whisky (fine and subtle) which brings balance and coherence to the blend. The depth and spicy richness of the sherry cask-matured whiskies (Oloroso) are revealed by the iodine freshness of young saline whiskies. After blending, its natural alcohol content is around 53% and it is very slightly reduced to 45% alcohol. Amber colour, ruby highlights, dark background. Scent of Jerez wine, leather, fine tobacco, fruit wood. Silky, powerful and long on the palate. The expression of a very well controlled peat that discreetly enhances the roundness and richness of whiskies aged in Oloroso casks. Extremely long and complex, it can be drunk as a digestive, at room temperature, and can be a wonderful companion to a cigar

The Estate Michel Couvreur

After a brilliant career as a wine merchant, Michel Couvreur, who sadly passed away in August 2013, had a deep desire to create his own masterpiece. This Flemish-born man discovered whisky thanks to a senior member of the Navy who passed on his passion. A true enthusiast by nature and in perpetual quest for excellence and perfection, he began in the 1970s to dig his own cellars in Bouze-Les-Beaune in Burgundy, where he would age his precious nectars.

Michel Couvreur 's whisky was born from a personal philosophy.

According to him, "90% of the quality of a whisky comes from the cask used" while at the same time, the fashion, at the time, pushes certain brands of whisky in search of volume to use American woods not always of the noblest origin...

He therefore tried to push the quality approach by selecting traditional Andalusian Pedro Ximenez or Oloroso casks (notably from the famous Jerez producer Emilio Lustau) which blend in wonderfully with the taste of the barley and where the Clearach and New Spirit would wait a long time to give birth to the famous Michel Couvreur whisky. Demanding by nature, he does not neglect the rest, importing his water from Loch Katrine in Scotland to Burgundy. He has even grown a variety of barley in the Orkney Islands in Scotland called Bere Barley, the oldest of the Scottish varieties and recognised for its great aromatic qualities for malt production, especially when distilled with the talent of a master...

Considered by whisky lovers as one of the best single malt whisky, Michel Couvreur's whisky is endowed with a rare complexity, a length and an impressive voluptuousness. Several vintages, each with its own personality, are to be discovered for those who do not know them yet, for an exceptional tasting. Please appreciate and taste these wines in moderation.
