About this Duncan Taylor Octave

Here we have a single cask, single grain, whisky from Invergordon. It was distilled in 2009 and matured for a dozen years, before Duncan Taylor finished it for five months in a small octave cask. That small cask has polished a beautiful single grain whisky, which is limited to just 86 bottles.

Meet The Owner

Euan Shand

A whisky merchant by trade, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky was brought by Euan Shand in 2008, returning the company to Scottish hands. Since then, Duncan Taylor has gone on to celebrate its 80th birthday in 2018 and Euan now runs the company as Chairman.

Today, Duncan Taylor have a number of award-winning collections. My favourite three are their Single Casks, bottled all natural, their Octave Invigorated, with turbo-charged flavour from small sherry casks, and their Rare Auld Grain collection of exceptionally well-aged single grain whiskies.
