Various young Scotch whiskies were sent for storage in Michel’s cellars in France to create this blend of 50+ malts with ages between 12-27 years. The whisky itself is very complex-yet-integrated, with notes of honey, blossom, and leather.

Country: Burgundy, France

Nose

Sweet, heavy and multi-layered sherynots pave the way out of my glass. The alcohol content (52%) is at no time noticeable and wonderfully integrated. Behind the massive sherry influence hides a variety of flavors, which gradually crystallize during nosing: Uromas Vanillekipferl, juicy Amarena cherries, dark forest fruits, juicy oranges, pipe tobacco, light smoke, hints of leather and spicy oak. I mean a trace of sulfur, hidden deep in the background. It pays to breathe the malt for 20-30 minutes. Very beautiful!

Taste

Full-bodied, strong and sweet onset. The tip of the tongue tingles a bit, while a true flood of aromas rolls over to the connoisseur. Juicy blood oranges leave a slightly acidic sting, dark fruits (especially Amarena cherries), raisins, caramel, Christmas spices, some leather, pipe tobacco, chocolate, light smoke and intense wood notes strengthen the varied and exciting variety of aromas. The alcohol is perfectly integrated again. In terms of taste, the malt continues to be very intense, warming and pleasantly balanced.

Finish

Long, voluminous and warming. A heavy residual sweetness flashes up, which reminds me of a burnt caramel crust of a creme brulee. Dark fruits, raisins, heavy wood notes, Christmas spices and light cigar smoke let the malt finish slowly and warming. A minimal dryness on the palate arises.

精挑細琢的手工、法國境內熟成、蘇格蘭原酒,兼具三種相異特色的Michel Couvreur,帶有一層神秘面紗。

品牌創辦人Michel Couvreur是布根地釀酒商,在1950年代初次見識到蘇格蘭威士忌後便愛不釋手,1964年甚至直接搬到蘇格蘭學習威士忌的釀造工法。

經過了十年的精心研究,Couvreur回到法國後,選擇在葡萄酒市鎮金丘(Cote d'Or)附近的Bouze-Les-Beaune,量身打造屬於自己心目中的專屬熟成酒窖。Couvreur將威士忌熟成分為兩區,乾燥區與另一區有非常潮濕、陰涼的特性。
