Duncan Taylor launcht neue Octave Premium Range

In geringen Mengen auch in Deutschland verfügbar

Glenallachie for whic

Während viele momentan bei unabhängigen Abfüllern erscheinende Whisky eher ein jüngeres Alter aufweisen, geht Duncan Taylor mit seiner eben angekündigten Octave Premium Range einen etwas anderen Weg.

Die neue Range, deren erste acht Abfüllungen soeben erschienen sind, veröffentlicht länger gereifte Whiskys aus teils bereits geschlossenen Malt- und Grain Destillerien. In den ersten acht Ausgaben reicht das Alter von 20 bis 46 Jahre.

Diese acht Whiskys sind verfügbar:

Blair Athol 1991 27 year old
Bowmore 1998 20 year old
Cambus 1991 27 year old
Cragganmore 1993 26 year old
Glen Grant 1992 26 year old
Port Dundas 1973 46 year old
Strathclyde 1990 28 year old
Tormore 1995 23 year old

Introducing The Octave Premium Range

We proudly present the first eight releases of premium Octave Invigorated™ whiskies. The Octave™ Premium Range showcases years of maturation expertise transforming some of Scotland’s oldest and rarest whiskies into gently expanded and more sophisticated forms. These rare and exceptional whiskies are presented in luxury packaging befitting their provenance.

The new releases include a 20-year old Bowmore, a 46-year old Port Dundas and a 26-year old Glen Grant. These premium Octave™ whiskies have been held in sherry casks to intensify their flavours and add new dimension to their flavour profiles, bringing out the best in each rare dram.

On the front of the box there is a Roman number (II, III or IV) which refers to the age of the whisky, i.e. II means the whisky is between 20 and 29 years old.

Inside the box, there is an “Octogram” which shows full tasting notes of the whisky both before and after “Octivation”. A copy of an example Octogram for the Port Dundas bottling, is attached.

Octave™ casks are approximately 1/8th the size of a butt and each one creates around 80 to 100 bottles. Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky, who trademarked The Octave™ name over 15 years ago, have now increased their portfolio to over 45 different Octave™ whiskies and are selling them in 50+ countries.

DTSW’s Chairman, Euan Shand, created the technique after perfecting it as a young cooper back in the 70s. Octave™ casks were used as a way of teaching how to make the larger butts for distilleries, but no-one actually ever used them for maturation of whisky. Euan saw a gap in the market for creating stunning whiskies by giving them a second maturation, that in turn, would add character to the flavour profile.

Euan says;

“It was a rite of passage back in the day, of perfecting your skill to make whisky barrels. It enhances the process of giving whisky more depth of flavour because the ratio of surface area of wood to volume of liquid is higher. It is now very successful and as a result we’ve now “octivated” every distillery’s whisky in Scotland that is in our warehouse. We are seeing a major interest in the portfolio across the globe.”
