For upwards of 40 years the team at Duncan Taylor have experimented by maturing whiskies in smaller casks with great success. Their research stemmed from the simple premise that there is more wood interaction with the whisky over a shorter period of time in a small cask than in a large cask, therefore allowing a more rapid melding of wood, air and alcohol.
After a second maturation the octave casks have refined the whisky, enhancing its hue, taste, form and character. The flavour profile is gently expanded, a little more sophisticated with the commanding presence of a mature, well balanced Scotch Whisky.
