One of the staple and best-loved whiskies from the Michel Couvreur label of Burgundy-matured whiskies.
The Overaged is a vatting of malt whiskies, aged between 12 and 20-years-old, that have been matured in ex-Pedro Ximenez casks.
Creamy and thick, thereâ€™s a damp cellar note coming from the PX casks but also younger vanilla. Touches of tobacco and dried flowers help balance youth and age.
Michel CouvreurÂ whiskies are, in fact, Scotch whiskies which areÂ shipped to France as new make and matured in caves in the Burgundy region. It's the maturationÂ climate and discipline in the choice of casks that make these expressions remarkably unique.Â TheÂ Scottish distilleries behind the spirit are kept a secret, but we know that over the years they have sourced new make spirit from each of Scotland's whisky producing regions.
