Apparently in the world of wine 11 am is the best time for tasting – wonder if it applies to whisky?
We’re pleased to have found James Eadie’s whiskies including his famous Trademark X blend. One of the world’s first blended Scotch whiskies and well known in the Victorian times, it was revived in 2017 by James Eadie’s great great grandson Rupert Patrick. He tracked down Mr Eadie’s ledgers and discovered a forgotten blend of today’s most sought-after malts and grains. He then sampled one of the last surviving bottles from the 1940s and with one of Scotland’s finest Master Blenders brought the whisky back to life.
It is a beautifully balanced blend with sweet and floral Speyside flavours contrasting with more peaty, phenolic notes typical of Islay malts. A drop of water accentuates the smoke and releases hints of plums, prunes and roasted coffee beans.
If it’s a single malt you’re after we also have the small batch Blair Athol 8 year old, Benrinnes 9 year old, Dailuaine 9 year old and single cask Strathmill 9 year old.
