For many years, Duncan Taylor Smith Ltd has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation of single malt and single grain scotch whiskies. This research stemmed from the simple premise that there is more interaction between the wood and spirit over a shorter period of time in a small cask than a larger cask, allowing a faster melding of wood, air and alcohol.

To great delight, the spirit that resulted from this method of maturation demonstrated a depth of quality missing from a larger cask over a similar period of storage. It had become smoother, more balanced and was bursting with character. With its rough edges removed, the taste profile was changed dramatically, becoming akin to whisky of a much more mature nature or vintage, It was polished, bright and sparkling with intensity.

From this process comes the Octave cask range, in this instance, a Tobermory 9 year old.
