This single malt from Bowmore is part of Duncan Taylor’s Premium Octave series, which has undergone a second maturation in octave casks to refine the whisky, enhancing its colour, taste, form and character.
The Octave Premium Range was launched in August 2019 showcasing years of maturation expertise in Octave casks, which are about 1/8th the size of a butt and each one creates around 80 to 100 bottles casks.
This single malt comes from Bowmore, one of Islay's most important distilleries known for producing a medium-peated spirit. It is one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to have its own floor maltings, which account for 40% of its needs, resulting in a malt that carries notes of mild bonfire smoke, cereal, citrus, and tropical fruit, underlined with a saline note.
