This single grain whisky, distilled in 1973 at port Dundas Distillery is a part of the second edition of the Octave collection from Duncan Taylor, which features Octave finished malts from lesser-known distilleries in Scotland.
Nose: Complex with beautiful sweet sherry and muscovado sugar. Lots of fruit with sour cherry notes and bright, fresh coffee berries.
Palate: An immediate tropical fruit explosion with lively mango and fresh coconut. Lovely balance, like a well-made bellini, with the sweetness balanced with the dryness from the wood.
Finish: Nutmeg, aniseed and hot buttered cinnamon Danish pastries. Very long, complex and satisfying.
