The Michel Couvreur's superiority first and foremost comes from a process of maturing whiskies principally in Sherry and Port casks. But the singular identity of our whiskies also results from the effects of the Bouze-lès-Beaune cellars, located in Burgundy, half-way between Andalucia and Scotland. One hundred and fifty meters of remarkable under grown galleries dug deep in the Burgundian rock—a place of dampness and silence. A selection of specific casks, and their careful to-and-fro between the dry and damp parts of the cellar imbue the Michel Couvreur whiskies with a very powerful intensity as well as a mellow roundness. Several years of ageing bestows them with a typical style and nobility.
A single malt with an amber colour with a very slightly toasted nose, fine, light, delicate, elegant, raised in Gaillac wine vats.
Michel Couvreur do not seek to aromatise by wood, to saturate their alcohols with tannins, but they consider a cask as a museum, a vector of memory flavours of a Domain. In this whisky the finesse and delicacy of Mauzac, the roundness and the spirit of this extraordinary wine that is the L’Oubli. - Cerbaco Distribution
