Whisky Without Compromise

​Duncan Taylor is credited with creating the Single Grain category by introducing single grain products to the market where there were none. Interest was piqued and demand grew.

The Rare Auld Grain Collection from Duncan Taylor is an outstanding range of single grain whiskies from across the length and breadth of Scotland. Thankfully the Duncan Taylor reserves contain many casks from Scotland's finest grain distilleries .

Bottled from single casks at cask strength, these unique whiskies are testament to the diversity and influence of individual casks, offering unrepeatable expressions from both renowned and lesser known distilleries. Neither chill filtered nor artificially coloured, only the finest whiskies are selected for inclusion in the Rare Auld Grain Collection ensuring each release delivers the multidimensional character of the distillery, true to our ethos:

“Whisky Without Compromise”

The balance of craftsmanship and attention to detail is central to Duncan Taylor’s award winning reputation and is evident in the complexity and depth of each release in the Rare Auld Grain Collection.
