Authentic Artisan Wines & Spirits
Rare Single Malt Whisky ~ Fleeting Q ~ 54% ~ 500mL
A distillery provides us with a historic variety of barley - Golden Promise - that produces spirits with great complexity. One time, we are fortunate to be able to acquire freshly emptied Porto Colheita pipes that smell powerfully of a Ruby's fruitiness and the complexity of a Tawny.
A delicate and subtle maturation, we hope the finesse of the Colheita, but after 10 years of ageing we get spicy flavors and an incredible rancio offering a very elegant finish. Keeping energy and concentration, we bottled at natural strength suppose at 54%. The bottling has been made on February 3, 2021 to obtain 2000 bottles and 12 magnums only.

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.
