The Glen Elgin Octave cask NO: 8433278 has aged for 12 years in oak casks, then spent the final 8 months in an octave cask. This release of only 87 bottles, is cask strength, non chill-filtered and not coloured.
For many years, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Limited has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation od 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.
Duncan Taylor Scotch whisky Limited are now proud to present the Octave cask range, the culmination of many years spent refining this unique maturation process. The spirit in this bottle is an exclusive example of a good whisky taken beyond all expectations to become rich, complex, and wise beyond its years. It has been 'Octave Invigorated'
