Michel Couvreur is an independent bottler who purchases single malt whiskies from Scotland and then ages them in Burgundy, France in the Bouze-lès-Beaune; a region certainly known more for fine wine than fine whisky. This is a blend of up to 50 different single malts ranging in age from 12-27 years. This vatting ages in ex-sherry butts and is bottled at 86 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Rich, malty notes are the first impression on the nose followed by a toasted nutty aroma. The palate is less fresh and juicy but rather focuses more on dark, dried fruits. There's a moderate amount of oil along with a fairly rich body. Though it is a bit of a one-hit-wonder on the flavor profile, there's enough of a tang there to keep you interested. Warming spiced notes hit you on the finish."
