Summer is almost here, and so is our November Whisky of the Month - Reviewed by AD Supervisor Malcolm

Tattersalls Club - Friday, November 01, 2019

They say summer bodies are made in winter, but in my opinion any time is a good time to start. With summer almost hitting I’m excited to get into budgy smugglers on the beach as well as in the Tattersalls pool!

 

My fitness program consists of 4 resistance training sessions a week, 2 HIIT sessions and 2 pool sessions. But balance is key and I like the occasional whisky to treat myself after an intense swim or workout...let’s face it; a six-pack isn’t made with six-packs of beer.

 

This is why I’ve put my hand up to review this month’s Whisky of the Month; Michel Couvreur’s Intravagan’za.

 

Michel Couvreur was a pioneer of made in France whisky. He had a very personal, and truly revolutionary vision of what whisky should be: more than terroir, more than the distiller’s touch, it was the maturing in oak casks that truly helped the grain spirit become whisky.

 

From 1978 on, having settled in the French region of Burgundy, he decided to make it his life’s work and to dedicate his research to a process which he once compared to cross-fertilisation.

 

Here’s what I thought of the Intravagan’za:

 

Colour

Light and golden, the perfect colour

Nose

Very easy on the nose, smelling sweet and welcoming

Palate

Hints of pear and some floral notes with a hint of smoke

Water

Opened up a new level of sweetness and enhanced the flavour

Finish

Overall a very easy sipping whisky, would make a great post-dinner drink

 

Now, enough about the whisky! If you would like to work on your fitness as we embark on the hotter months, book in with me or someone from the team for a personalised program, tailored to your personal goals and interests. Contact the team at addesk@tattersallsclub.org or on 9263 9212.
