The Unique is this great bottlers singular take on a blended whisky. Taking both unmalted and malted whiskies from Scotland as its base, the spirits are aged and co-mingled to a seamless harmony in the famous cavernous cellars deep in the earth under Beaune in Burgundy
The Unique is 'unique' to the Couvreur lineup in the fact that it's so delicately framed by the barrel - spending just 4 years in old whisky casks. It's a classic grain/malt blend and it also drinks the most 'blendy' of the bunch, too...which I guess makes sense. It's light in color and highly fragrant, with that terrific, classic salty/iodine thing on the nimble finish. It's the lean and mean Couvreur and is perfect for when you're looking for something light and classic, but with more intrigue than one of the old-school workhorse blends you see behind every home bar.
