Michel Couvreur

Two Casks Fleeting

Michel Couvreur has been producing whisky in Burgundy since 1978, and has established himself as the region’s authority on the subject. He takes the finest whiskies from Scotland and ages them to perfection in his secluded barrel caves. With such a limited supply, each bottle he makes is one of the ultimate treasures you can attain in the whisky world. The Two casks Fleeting is the only Couvreur’s expression aged in Port pipas!
Couvreur has purchased freshly emptied old Porto Colheita pipes that powerfully smell of Ruby’s fruitiness and Tawny complexity. Burnt red at sight with aromas of cereals, almonds and red fruit. The mouthfeel is tight, nervous and spicy. The finish is broad and dominated by a rancio note. A delicate and subtle maturation for sure. Keeping energy and concentration, the whisky has been bottled at natural strength at 54% AbV.
