Teaninich 2008 James Eadie 12 Year Old Sherry Finish
James Eadie is an independent bottler with its origins in the blending business of the 19th century, best known for its Trade Mark ‘X’ blend. The name was revived by its eponymous founder’s great grandson in 2014 as the independent bottling arm of his Whisky Invest Direct company. The firm uses its extensive access to casks to turn out increasingly well-regarded releases, and has even resurrected the historic Trade Mark ‘X’ as a popular supermarket blend.
This whisky was distilled in 2008 and matured for 12 years including a 7 month finish in 1st fill oloroso. One of 268 bottles.
Teaninich was built in the early 19th century and was eventually bought by blenders, Munro & Cameron, in 1895. Their trustees later sold the distillery to DCL in 1933, and it remains part of the Diageo operation to this day. The distillery's primary focus is on provision for the firms many blends, and the 10 year old Flora & Fauna has been the only permanent distillery bottling, with just a handful of rare official releases appearing alongside it over the years. As such, the majority of Teaninich single malt has appeared under independent labels such as this.
