The Octave: Before and After Octivation

  • 2 May
  • £40.00
  • Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky
  • Huntly

Not normally open to the public, this is a rare chance to get behind the scenes at Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky and see some of the most exclusive whiskies in the world.   With an uncompromising focus on quality, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky is a family owned spirits business with an impressive portfolio of whisky brands including Black Bull, The Octave, Dimensions, Tantalus and The Rarest.  The company has been laying down casks from premium Scottish distilleries for decades and now owns one of the largest privately held collections of vintage and rare scotch whisky casks.  

For upwards of 40 years the team at Duncan Taylor has experimented by maturing whiskies in smaller casks with great success. Our research stemmed from the simple premise that there is more wood interaction with whisky over a shorter time in a small cask than in a large cask, therefore allowing a more rapid melding of wood, air and alcohol. After a second maturation the octave casks have refined the whisky, enhancing its hue, taste, form and character. The flavour profile is gently expanded, a little more sophisticated with the commanding presence of a mature, well-balanced Scotch Whisky.

This is a unique experience to taste the magical effect of Octivation on 4 whiskies, tasting the original spirit alongside its “Octave Invigorated” self. Meet at King Street, Huntly for a tour of the operation and cask warehouse followed by a tasting of 8 whiskies at Whiskies of Scotland, Gordon Street, Huntly.
