Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Duncan Taylor 70cl / 55%
A 15-year-old Highland Park 2006 from Duncan Taylor that spent the last five months of its maturation in one of the company's miniature octave sherry casks, which are basically 60-odd litre miniature sherry butts. Just 88 bottles were yielded from this particular octave, so there's not much to go round, sadly.
Duncan Taylor have got their octave finishes down to a fine art now, and this cask strength 15-year-old Highland Park 2006 will be another little belter, and of course it was bottled at its natural strength of 55% without colouring or chill filtration, so what you see is what you get.
