Selected by Duncan Taylor for their "The Octave Premium" range.

The octave series sees the whisky given a second maturation in smaller octaves. This produces a greater surface are to volume ratio allowing the whisky to mature faster.

Distilled in 1996, aged 23 years in oak casks and bottled in 2020 at a natural cask strength of 51.8%, this is one of 60 bottles.
