Crunchy green pears and sour apple boiled sweets with lemon rind, at first. This is followed by a lovely coastal note that breezes in, bringing with it hints of wellies and the last cinders of a warm fire. With time, elements of ham hock appear, and with a bit of opening up there are richer notes of boiled cream, vanilla, and breadroll thickly spread with butter and topped with smoked mussels. A first sip brings spice-tingle and delicately smoked Speck, then sweetness, rolling back to a sooty and Fox’s Glacier Mint finish.

James Eadie owned more than 200 pubs in his lifetime. This is one of a series of whiskies released to commemorate some of these fine drinking establishments! The label features a beautiful drawing by Annabel Pope, entitled “The Black Lion”, inspired by The Black Lion Inn, Coventry, acquired by Eadie 29th September 1896.
