This single malt from Glentauchers is part of Duncan Taylor’s Octave series, which has undergone a second maturation in sherry octave casks that are about 1/8th the size of a butt. The result is an ‘Octave Invigorated’ whisky that has an expanded flavour profile of a mature, well-balanced Scotch Whisky.
Glentauchers was established in 1898 by James Buchanan & Co. to provide fillings for its Buchanan’s and Black & White blends, and today, Ballantine’s. It is known for producing whiskies from long ferments of 60 hours and slow distillation, resulting in a floral profile as opposed to an earthier spirit.
Tasting notes: Floral, cinnamon buns, raisins, citrus peel and white pepper.
