Single Malt Whisky
An Octave cask is 1/8th the size of a standard cask and contains approximately 50 litres of whisky.
For many years, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd. has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation of Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch whiskies.
The research stemmed from a simple premise that there is more interaction between the wood and the spirit over a shorter period of time in a small cask than in a large cask, therefore allowing a more rapid melding of wood, air and alcohol.
There will be 5 x The Octave Macallan 1997 15YO bottles for sale at the Spirit Show, this rare and very limited bottling is sure to sell out!
