Duncan Taylor Bunnahabhain 20-Year-old

It’s Whisky Wednesday once again so pour a dram!

Duncan Taylor is an independent bottler based in Huntly Scotland.  Founded in 1938, it is one of the few family owned bottlers in the industry today. They started as a cask broker and developed strong ties with distilleries all over Scotland.  They bring their own cask to the distillery and have it filled with new make spirit.  This resulted in a collection of cask whiskies distilleries- many of which are now closed- which are still maturing in the Duncan Taylor warehouse today.
