Reviving the famous James Eadie Trade Mark 'X' after 70 yrs. An elegant, peaty dram offering a rare glimpse into the art of blending from the first Golden Age of Scotch Whiskey.
Tasting Notes: Sharp lemon and orange citrus note leading to a more savoury cereal note, some hints of honey, with a touch of spice - cloves and some nutmeg. The finish is on the heavy side, but reasonably clean, with sweet cereal notes enduring alongside some of that sharper, grassy note.
Rupert Patrick, the great-great grandson, decided to revive his ancestor's famous James Eadie's Trade Mark, he first tracked down Mr. Eadie's ledgers, and discovered a forgotten blend of today's most sought-after malts and grain. Then, he sampled one of the last surviving bottles from the 1940s with a panel of experts. Finally, he invited Norman Mathison, one of Scotland's finest Master Blenders, to bring James Eadie's whisky back to life.
