The Octave range is where the finest whiskies have a final maturation in ex-sherry octave casks, the spirit is invigorated by the increased wood contact in the smaller casks, bringing you a spectacular dram. This is the first time that the Springbank spirit has had a final maturation in a Duncan Taylor octave cask, the combination of Springbank's robust peaty dram with the Oloroso sherry and increased contact produces a whisky that has far surpassed all expectations.
The Octave Casks Maturation Process
At the Octave, we use octave casks to mature our whiskies. These casks are smaller than traditional whisky casks, which allows for a more significant interaction between the whisky and the wood. This interaction results in a deeper, richer flavor profile and a more complex whisky.
