Duncan Taylor has experimented with small octave casks for 40 years. Octave casks mean there is more wood interaction with whisky over a shorter period of time. This allows a more rapid melding of wood, air and alcohol, than maturing whisky in larger casks.
After a second maturation the octave casks have refined the whisky, enhancing its hue, taste, form and character. The flavour profile is invigorated, and more sophisticated. The result is a mature, well-balanced Scotch Whisky.
