Preiss Imports to Begin Octave Program with Duncan Taylor

I've been bugging these guys for months now to get this thing rolling, but as usual there are a ton of hang ups in the whisky importing/distributing business, so I've had to twiddle my thumbs and wait.  I just got confirmation from Ken today that they will be sending out pricing later this afternoon or tomorrow.  He did however send me the list in advance and I am passing that over to you below. WHY WOULD YOU PASS THAT LIST ON TO US, DAVID? you might be asking.  BECAUSE: you can buy your own octave!  That's right, boys and girls, you can own your own 1/8th of a barrel by placing an order via us. You can get some friends to chip in or keep it all for yourself; the choice is yours.  All the whiskies were purchased by Duncan Taylor and finished off in an octave cask after being aged in bourbon or sherry previously.  They are all single barrel, although I'm not sure yet if they can be bottled cask strength or not, but I'm assuming "yes."  Because an octave is so much smaller, the influence of the wood is greater, so all of the whiskies will be in the octave for less than 12 months as not to completely ruin the flavor.  There are no barrel samples available, so you're going to have to trust Duncan Taylor and have faith in the distillery.  Pricing will be available later, so email me if you want to have an idea of what a whole 1/8th (roughly 70-80 bottles) of a barrel will cost.  We will also be buying some for the store so there we be single bottles available.  Here is the list:

This will be an ongoing thing so there will be new barrels coming in after the current ones sell out.  Exciting!  We're already coveting some of the old Caol Ila and Bowmore casks.
