MICHEL COUVREUR CANDID 70 Cl
A blended malt from Michel Couvreur, made from Scottish whisky which is aged in cellars in Burgundy using Sherry oak casks. The Candid expression is buttery and rich, with plenty of Sherry oak influence - think sun dried raisins and hints of almond oil - with touches of peat running though it.
The new Disclosure expression Amazingly expressive young whisky ! Malt distilled in 2006 and matured in deeply humid caves within intensely.
|Nose||Mince pie, petrichor, heavy fruit cake and a hearty helping of nutmeg.|
|Palate||Sherry notes are up front and sweet (almost creamy), but the robust peat earthiness keeps it all in check.|
|Finish||Is once again peat and oil, with bitter liquorice the only lasting flavour.|
