Tasting Notes-Strathmill The Octave-Duncan Taylor 1990 46.9%
Sorry not available at present.
Strathmill was founded in 1823, not as a distillery but a cornmill. In 1891 inspired by the whisky boom going on around them, the owners convert the mill into a distillery.
It traded under the name Glenisla-Glenlivet, perhaps named for the river Isla which runs past the foot of the building.
In 1895 Gin makers W & A Gilbey bought the distillery in 1962 and changed the name to Strathmill. Gilbey merged with United Wine Traders to make International Distillers & Vintners.
It has been owned by Diageo since 1997 who operate it for the production of blends such as J&B whisky. Strathmill casks are used by Duncan Taylor to bottle their whisky.
Notes from Strathmill.
Duncan Taylor Independent Bottlers
Is a family owned business producing quality Scotch whisky. For over 40 years they have experimented maturing whiskies in smaller casks.
The company was initially a merchant and broker of Scotch whisky casks in Glasgow. Devotion to the principle of providing only the finest casks to be filled at Scotland’s leading distilleries has been a key feature of the company’s history.
Duncan Taylor has been laying down casks from premium Scottish distilleries for decades.
In 2002 Duncan Taylor moved its headquarters to Huntly, on the periphery of Speyside, Scotland’s largest whisky producing region, where it has its own facilities for cask storage, bottling, a cooperage and very soon, its own distillery.
At that time, Duncan Taylor ceased the “brokering” of whisky casks to distillery companies and bottlers to focus on the production and marketing of its own brands, and diversifying the portfolio with the addition of gin and rum.
Today it owns one of the largest privately held collections of vintage and rare scotch whisky casks.
