This Islay Blend is a "teaspoon" of some of our favorite Islay malts. Distilleries use this method to keep independent bottlers from using the term Single Malt.

The Octave 

For many years, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd. has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation of Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch whiskies. The research stemmed from a simple premise that there is more interaction between the wood and the spirit over a shorter period of time in a small cask than in a large cask, therefore allowing a more rapid “melding” of wood, air and alcohol.
