Duncan Taylor

Very much patience.

How to get (affordable) barrels of over 40-year-old malt whiskey from famous distilleries? At Springbanks, Highland Parks or Macallans from the 60s? Or at whiskeys of long gone, mythenumrankter distilleries like Kinclaith or Glenugie? The answer is: not anymore today. For that you have had the right nose long ago and acquired corresponding barrels. And then you have to wait, do not fill the barrels too early, but at least let the best of them age. For this you also need a long-term financial, a large camp and a lot of patience. Fortunately, Duncan Taylor has all of this. The independent family business, founded in 1938, claims to own one of the largest collections of old barrels, acquired over many decades. And so today we have the opportunity to take real whiskey time travel with the enjoyment of such rare bottlings. Thanks for that, Duncan.


Which whiskey do they make?

The Whiskey Portfolio of Duncan Taylor is immensely extensive and currently consists of the following brands: Blended Scotch Whiskey is marketed as Black Bull, Scottish Glory, Smokin 'and Loch Ness.
Under the names Auld Reekie and The Big Smoke two Blended (or: Vatted) Malt Whiskeys are offered. Both are, as the names already suggest, clearly puked and should let beat the heart of Islay's friends.
Finally, single malt Scotch whiskey is available from Duncan Taylor under the labels Battlehill (more recent Speyside malts in potable strength), Dimensions (single cask bottling in cask strength), The Duncan Taylor single range (premium series with very old and rare single cask bottlings), The Duncan Taylor Tantalus (high-end bottlings of at least 40 years and elaborate design), The Octave (Malt and Grain whiskeys from unusually small "octave" barrels in which the spirit matures faster), The Whiskey Galore Collection (rather younger Single malts from different regions) and The Rarest Collection (extremely rare whiskeys of long-established "lost distilleries" like Glenugie or Kinclaith).
Many people remember the bottlings from the Peerless Collection and the NC2 series (NC2 = Non Chill Filtered, Non-Colored).


speciality of the House

A blended Scotch whiskey nothing special? The "Black Bull" by Duncan Taylor will give some malt-lovers new thinking about blends. Because this award-winning blended whiskey is a high quality (and therefore not very cheap) masterpiece. The Special Reserve, filled with a powerful 50%, has a Maltanteil of 75% and contains excellent whiskeys from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s! For the 30-year-old "Black Bull 30", malt and grain whiskeys were already married in the 1970s, which have since matured together in sherry casks. The "Black Bull 40" finally has 90% Maltanteil and contains among other things malt whiskeys of the distilleries Springbank, Highland Park or Bunnahabhain - all at least 40 years old. A dream.
