The Mannochmore Distillery is owned and operated by Diageo and it is located in Elgin situated in Scotland Speyside whisky region. Founded in 1971 by John Haig & Co. The distillery is was quite unusual, it only opened for 12 month periods and then was closed for 12 months alternating with the nearby Glenlossie distillery of which it shared its employees. Since 2008 the distillery operates continuously and has its own crew of employees.
James Eadie Ltd was founded by Rupert Patrick in 2016. Rupert is James Eadie’s great-great-grandson, who has held positions at Diageo, Beam and Ian Macleod Distillers. James Eadie founded a brewery in Burton-on-Trent in 1854, the same year he developed the Trade Mark X Scotch blend. The blend was extremely popular and was sold to Eadie’s chain of public houses throughout the 19th century. In 1933 James’s business was sold to Bass who continued producing the blend till 1947. The resurrection of the blend along with the structuring of the independent bottling company by Rupert means that James Eadie can be remembered again and his past work can be enjoyed once more. The James Eadie Independent bottling’s consist of cask strength selections from various Scottish distilleries. Each bottle describes the distillery, the abv and the date of distillation and bottling as well as the maturation technique.
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.
Our Tasting Notes
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.
