Single Malt Whisky ~ Blossoming Auld Sherried ~ 45% ~ 700mL
Image of whisky, Michel Couvreur likes to produce since the "Anno Domini Whisky" purposed in 2000. Fragrances of Sherry, flowers, vanilla, dried fruits. Mellow, and long in the mouth. A fabulous balance between sherry’s warmth and the fresh flavours only barley can produce. Fabulous demonstration of a whisky matured in a very impregnated sweet PX Sherry cask. Its label does not indicate time spent in wood because the whisky’s maturity is reached differently in every cask. Age is only one of the complex factors on which maturation depends. Blossoming Auld Sherried is the perfect demonstration of sherry impregnated wood’s greatest significance.

Michel Couvreur had a very personal, and truly revolutionary vision of what whisky should be: more than terroir, more than the distiller’s touch, it was the maturing in oak casks that truly helped the grain spirit become whisky. From 1978 on, having settled in the French region of Burgundy, he decided to make it his life’s work and to dedicate his research to a process which he once compared to cross-fertilisation.
Michel Couvreur passed away in 2013; his son-in-law Cyril Deschamps and his cellar master Jean-Arnaud Frantzen, with the invaluable help of Michel’s devoted wife Marthe and his daughter Alexandra, follow to the letter the philosophy and the motto of the house: Virtute et Opera.
