An incredibly floral spirit is produced at the Mannochmore distillery, the sister of the Glenlossie distillery. This single cask was finished for 10 months in a 1st fill European oak Pedro Ximenez hogshead.
Nose: Hot cocoa and Ovaltine tablets are at the forefront here. A bit of raspberry coulis and plum jam wait in the background.
Palate: Slow like molasses, loaded with blood orange and dark chocolate. Huge amounts of sherry character.
Finish: A touch savoury, like old leather and rock salt.
James Eadie (1827-1904) was a Scottish brewer who established a significant brewery in 1854. Born near Gleneagles in Scotland, he was one of fourteen children and left school at the age of fourteen to work for his living.
Reported in local papers as a self-made man, Mr Eadie was a quiet individual whose hard work and indomitable perseverance earned him and his family a good living.
Aside from beer, the Eadie family had their own recipe for a Blended Scotch whisky, which has been thoughtfully recreated using the extensive ledgers left by Eadie. These ledgers named numerous distilleries and cask types which are still available today and these are what make up the bulk of the modern James Eadie brand today.
