About this Duncan Taylor Octave

This is an excellent opportunity to try a single malt you don't often see as an indie release, Brackla. In this case, we have a 11 year old single cask expression. To layer extra flavour onto this great quality whisky, indie bottler Duncan Taylor has used one of their extra small casks. This small oloroso sherry octave has beautifully polished the whisky.

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.
