An Iconic Speyside 2011 The Octave 10 Year Old 53.7% 70cl
Part of The Octave series from Duncan Taylor this single malt was first distilled in 2011 at 'An Iconic Distillery' it was then left to rest and mature for 10 years in oak casks. This bottle is from cask no. 2932119 which only produced 86 bottles when bottled in 2021.
The Octave series was produced with Duncan Taylors research that stemmed from the simple promise that there is more wood interaction with whisky over a shorter period of time in a small cask than 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.
