Here's another octave cask release from independent bottler Duncan Taylor. The Highland Park 2008 10 YO Octave was distilled in 2008, and matured for 10 years in an unspecified oak cask . Then it was finished for six months in an octave cask. 

 

Nose: Vanilla and a light oakiness. Mild heather and peat. Malty.

Taste: Medium body. Vanilla and caramel. Oaky sweetness. Medium peatiness. Comes across as fairly young in style.

Finish: Medium to short finish. Remains oaky. Green and herbal. Honey.

Comments: Not sure the octave cask finish made a positive impact. Solid dram though.

Score (83/100)
