First Octave bottlings

Duncan Taylor are delighted to introduce their Octave Collection of single malt and grain whiskies.  There are 3 types in the range Bowmore 1982, Caperdonich 1972 and Cameronbridge 1978.  These can be purchased individually or as a trio.

 The Caperdonich bottle will be provided with a signed certificate to show the authenticity of this first release, Caperdonich is more highly sought after amongst drinkers and collectors due to the news that the distillery will never produce whisky again, therefore a great collectors item and a must have.  The whisky in the Octave Range has not been chill-filtered or coloured, whiskies were originally matured in standard sized casks before undergoing Sherry Octave Invigoration for the final three months.  This process has energized and added vitality to the whiskies as shown by the before and after tasting notes on the back label of the bottles.  Each Octave has produced only 70 bottles and each cask is uniquely numbered.
