Duncan Taylor, established in Glasgow in 1938, is an independent bottler. Over the years a few of their releases have been available in South Africa, but not nearly enough for our appetite. Thus we set out to get some Duncan Taylor independent bottlings to the country, and we're are thrilled to introduce you to no less than 5 releases- 3 single grains and 2 single malts. All exclusive to WhiskyBrother, all single (octave) casks and bottled at cask strength!
The releases in the Duncan Taylor Octave range are whiskies that are initially matured in 250 litre hogshead casks and then finished in 50 litre sherry casks for several months. Due to the smaller cask size there is an increased wood to spirit ratio, which enables more flavour to penetrate the spirit over a shorter period.
