Michel Couvreur Pale Single Single Malt French Whisky 700mL
Michel Couvreur, originally from Belgium, ages Scotch Whisky in the heart of Burgundy (Bouze-Les- Beaune). In the 1950’s he arrived in Burgundy to make and market wine.
Single-single simple means single cask (one cask from one distillery). Colour: straw. Nose: this is much more interesting. A lot of gooseberries, strawberries and lemon balm on top of lemon pie and whiffs of sea breeze. Very clean and very pure, although the oakiness grows bolder again over time (ginger). Mouth: still very fresh but the attack is grassier. Peppered apple pie. Finish: long, quite tannic and salty. Comments: nice malt, especially on the nose, but you have to like plain oak in your whisky. Salted fresh oak? – 79 points, Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
