Michel Couvreur "The Unique" Whisky750 ml
Can we call this flagship expression entry-level in the world of whisky pioneer Michel Couvreur? When it comes to this rare blend of malted and unmalted grain in order to produce a subtle sipper with flavors of almond and vanilla sweetness, the answer is a resounding yes! Unlike the rest of Couveur's whiskies, The Unique is not aged in new sherry casks, but older barrels, which allow for more nuanced flavor in this young, 4 year old whisky.
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-fertilization. The legacy of Couvreur, who passed away in 2013, continues through his family and his cellar master Jean-Arnaud Frantzen, as they religiously follow the philosophy and the motto of the house: Virtute et Opera.
