Michel Couvreur Special Vatting Peaty Malt WhiskyMichel Couvreur
The selection of Michel Couvreur whiskies are made from Scotch whiskies that have been matured in cellars in Burgundy in Sherry oak casks - Couvreur was a fan of maturing whisky in Sherry casks rather than bourbon casks. This expression, a "special vatting", is a particularly peaty whisky, but it's certainly no slouch of the Sherried whisky side of things either. Always a pleasure to see a great balance of the two.
With malt whisky Special Vatting, whisky maker Michel Couvreur takes Scottish whisky and ages it in Sherry oak casts in a Burgundian cellar. It has a particularly beautiful balance between a rich, peaty flavour of the Scotch and the more mellow Sherry from the barrel
