Experience the exceptional Octave Premium Caol Ila 2008 15 Year old whisky, matured in oak casks and finished in ex-sherry octave casks. The smaller casks provide increased wood contact, creating a stunning dram that is sure to invigorate your senses. This limited release of only 73 bottles from single cask #4036556 was bottled at cask strength in 2023, without chill-filtration or added colour. This is a result of Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Limited's ongoing experimentation with cask sizes, proving that smaller casks allow for a faster melding of wood, air, and alcohol. Indulge in this exclusive and remarkable whisky that has been 'Octave Invigorated' beyond all expectations.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Damp, dark and earth pine forest floor. Mushrooms sauteed in dark soy sauce. Some bitter chocolate with sweeter dried fruits steeped in brandy. A hint of seaside minerality, a damp pebble beach in winter. Dark, old-fashioned, mixed citrus marmalade.

Palate: Very fresh, clean and bright. Not as dark as the nose, more citrus. Salt preserved lemons, crystallised stem ginger. Buttery caramel. more minerality. A dry oaky, cool savignon blanc. A slightly saline touch. the smoke is very restrained, more ashy than smoky, a salty driftwood, bonfire ashiness, rather than a raging peat fire.

Finish: The smoke becomes more pronounced and adds to the generous length, a wonderful balance between dried fruit sweetness and the dryer citrus notes. the dark chocolate of the nose makes a welcome return, rich complex and satisfying.
