Couvreur Dominos Malt Whisky "Kysela Selection"
France - Burgundy - Bouze-Les-Beaune

Couvreur Dominos Malt Whisky "Kysela Selection" is a special project between our two companies in order to celebrate more than 25 years of relationship.

it’s a special blend for different reasons, in comparaison with Michel Couvreur's usual Overaged (12 years old Blended malt whisky):
- No water, Dominos is a natural strength bottling. Jean-Arnaud and Cyril have used some old malt whiskies matured a long time in their humid underground cellar. The very high level of humidity makes that we loose a lot of alcohol concentration every year. In this case, the alcohol concentration can be close to 40% ABV. Instead of adding water, we prefer to keep the flavors' concentration and decrease the final alcohol concentration by adding old whiskies.
- Being a blended malt whisky, we decided to increase the ratio of peated malt.
- Some malt whiskies are matured in very old Moscatel casks which give « roasted », « coffee », « miso Japanese spice » flavors. These malts enhanced the flavors of the blend, like the salt in the food, like miso spice in a Japanese soup… In French, we like to say « exhausteur de goûts » (flavors enhancer).
- Whiskies from 10 different barrels were used in order to reach the perfect blend.

In May 2023, Jean-Arnaud came to visit Fran and Joe in Winchester, VA with two possible blends:
- A slightly lighter, delicate « Overaged »
- A peated, more spicy « Overaged », that we selected. We gave it the name "Dominos".
