Reviews for Michel Couvreur Overaged Malt Whisky
Left a bad taste
Not a great taste. Very ethanoly and that’s where the flavour stops apart from the touch of smoke. I am not a fan, worst whisky I have had in quite a while. I will give it 1.5 stars but that’s generous

Very good bottle
I'm a regular bourbon drinker, but I'm open to all whiskies. This did not disappoint. I'm very glad I bought it when I saw it. Lots of subtle notes, dried fruit, nuts, a sweet fruit, ¿maybe apricot?, and a long finish for me. Thoroughly enjoying it, a must share with good friends (not all friends).

Outstanding
Oustanding bottle. I very often hold myself from drinking from it because it's so damn difficult to find. I just ordered a second bottle because I can never have enough of it, and the stocks are going down. Buy if you can find, it really is liquid gold. You'll thank me later.

If you have the patience to open it
Imposible to open. Literally drinking off a broken neck. I hope their are no shards in there but it taste amazing. Taste like a blend but right there with some of the best

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.
