Darkness 10 Year Old – Glentauchers Moscatel Cask (57.4%) 500ml


Glentauchers 10 Year  Moscatel Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Darkness)

The whisky that ypu hold in your hand has been specially fininshed for over three months in a fresh, first fill Sherry Cask called an Octave.  An Octave is a cask that has been custom built to just one eighth the size of a standard (500 litre) sherry butt.

By Virtue of their smaller size, Octaves create an increased interaction between whisky and wood.  The result is the attainment of maximum richness and depth of flavour during the final period of maturation.

Subtlety, poised and elegance have no place here, Welcome to a new level of flavour intensity.
