1997 Duncan Taylor Octave Laphroaig 20 Years Single Cask Whisky
The Octave Collection by Duncan Taylor is extensive with something for all tastes, be it a single malt, a single grain or a blended malt whisky. For upwards of 40 years, the team has experimented by maturing whiskies in smaller casks with great success.
An Octave cask contains only about one eighth of a butt, about 50 litres. There is a lot of interatction between the whisky and oak wood in Octave, which means the malt absorbs a lot of aroma relatively quickly.
