Experience the aging process of The Octave Glenrothes 2013 9 Year Old, aged for 9 years in oak casks and finished for 4 months in a sherry octave cask. Only 79 bottles of this limited release are available, bottled at a cask strength of 54.9% to ensure a pure and natural taste without any artificial filtering or colouring. 

Ever been curious about the process of maturation in an Octave, well we can state that curiosity. Samples of this Octave were drawn before Octivation and 6 weeks along with the finished product, a sample of the sherry that matured in the cask previously and a sample of the water that was used by the experts at Duncan Taylor to cut and sample the whisky at different stages.

For many years, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Limited has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation of single malt Scotch whiskies. This research stemmed from the simple premises that there is more interaction between the wood and spirit over a short period of time in a small cask than in a large cask, allowing for a faster melding of wood, air and alcohol.

To great delight, the spirit that resulted from this method of maturation demonstrated a depth of quality missing from a larger cask over a similar period of storage. It had become smoother, more balanced and was bursting with character, With its rough edges removed, the taste profile was changed dramatically, becoming akin to a whisky of a much more mature nature or vintage. It was polished, bright and sparkling with intensity.

Tasting Notes

Pre Octave: This dram is for those who lean towards a tarter palate with White pepper, fresh squeezed orange juice and home made apple sauce, the more zesty notes are brought together by soft heather honey, over all a creamy dram.

18 Weeks in Octave: The maturation in the Octave has endowed plenty of sherry notes, packed full of dried fruit (prunes, raisons, candy peel) and notes of cinnamon. An night at the cinema with caramelised toffee popcorn and sugared almonds. the sweetness of meringues is balanced with the gentle tannins given off by green banana skins. The creamy mouth coating continues.
