MC Overaged Malt Whisky Bottling Note

A blended malt from Michel Couvreur, who gets Scotch whisky sent over to France to be aged in Sherry oak casks in Burgundy before blending. Quite unusual, but very intriguing.

Michel Couvreur Overaged Malt Whisky Reviews

My favourite, hands down

How about the 1 star review for being hard to open? Yes I admit it was difficult to open on a camping trip, but once I got the bottle open, oh my god, what an amazing tasting whiskey. This is the bottle that sent me on a whiskey obsession journey that I’m still deep in today. The best, smoothest and my interesting flavours I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. Wish this was easier to find in Asia!!

Rich, dark, brooding, and French.

Very unique, very rich whiskey with a good balance of flavors. DARK. Subtle smoke, pecans, dried fruits, fruit cake, sugar cereal, pork rind, fatty notes, vinous notes. A bit brooding and unwelcoming at first (very french), but as the bottle sat open and I got to know Monsieur Couvreur over the following week or two, he willingly shared the flavors I mentioned. A very obviously unfiltered scotch, hazy with some particles of the barrels, and clumped fatty acids. I actually filtered it through cheesecloth to remove some of the particulates and it helped to aerate it. Did I say unique? It makes an excellent Godfather drink with a splash of amaretto. As for the cork, use a CORKSCREW, whoda thunk? Pull it right through the wax, clean up the edge with the corkscrew blade, and enjoy. A must-try because there really is nothing like it. If you like the thicker, oily style of scotch, this is right up your alley. I will buy again some day for sure.

Real nice.

Almost identical to the suntory hibiki. It's really uncanny.

Very good

Fabulous
Easy open....use a standard wine screw right down the center of wax and cork....lever up just like a fine wine! Enjoy!

Almost brandy-like, plus a tip

Great sherried scotch, almost a brandy-style character more than malt. Very sherry on the nose, a bit hotter on the palate than I would expect for 43%. I like it more than the glendronach PX equivalent. A Tip for whisky folks that may be unfamiliar with this style of closure (usually reserved for wine). Use a real wine key/corkscrew and go in straight through the wax on top. When you pull​ out the cork, it should snap off the top part of the wax cleanly as the cork comes out). Don't mess about with trying to remove the wax separately.

Beautifully sweet whisky

Hard to find, harder to open but worth the effort. Lovely sweet drop with a lingering aftertaste. Very different from some of his other styles.

Magnificent !

This was recommended to me by my local. I'm starting to get into whisky and trying to broaden my pallate to see what I really like. I've tried some absolute gold from Sullivan's Cove in Tassie as well as more traditional top drops including the Islay classics that are very peaty. I have recently moved into the Japanese range trying Nikka from the barrell as well as the Hakusha 12 yr old. But I must say that this drop from France is now my new favourite. It's an incredibly smooth long finish with quite a sweet taste to it. At $120 it's up there but worth it IMO. The bottle is very attractive but as with the other comments a total pain in the arse to open and keep closed.

Lovely sweet drop

Never knew about French whiskey but glad I do now. I loved this sweet tasty style. Lovely long aftertaste.

Fine whiskey, but un-openable bottle

The contents are perfectly nice. But then they ruined it. A bottle that is supposed to take a screw top is instead corked, and dipped in some sort of hard solid wax. Not something peel-able like Makers, but heat gun, putty knife and razor, in the basement, with the cork smoking. Not sure how this enhances the experience. Not worth it for yourself, and only give to your frenemies.

French Whiskey, who knew?...

First of all lets be honest. It is certainly not worth $180 from the Bottle House, South Yarra, Melbourne.

However, what we did experience is a surprisingly refined taste & flavour with a sweet finish. We also loved the associated romance with opening a wax coated corked bottle. (bit of a pain in the arse actually).

Overall this a bold distinctive fusion whiskey with raw ingredients from Scotland and casked in French sherry oak. It is not for the faint hearted, this a strong robust peaty smooth adventurous whiskey worth trying. I'll be keeping a close watch for any new products from Michel's.

Intriguing indeed!

Quite interesting to experience such sweetness with a small dose of peat. I will be trying more of Michel's creations.
