Bit of Background: James Eadie are one of our favourite indie bottlers with whisky roots stretching back to the 19th century when Mr Eadie was the largest private bottler of whisky in the UK. Today they routinely produce single cask & small batch gems, but today we are looking at a sterling example of their work as blenders.

Much like its stunning looking label pays tribute to two Fife icons – one ancient, Dunfermline Abbey, and one modern, the Queensferry Crossing, the Fife Blend is truly a bit of history, the first blended Scotch that can trace every drop in the bottle to Fife distilleries for almost 100 years. A fusion of just two casks – a 15yo first fill bourbon cask from a farmhouse distillery, just 4.2 miles from our Cupar shop, that we couldn’t possibly mention and marsala cask finish of Cameronbridge of an age we can’t even hint at, but 5×5 is such an interesting maths problem don’t you think?

Nose: Bananas being caramelised in maple syrup, dried apricots & mango slices, strawberry laces, & lemon sherbets.

Palate: Nectarines being poached in golden syrup with star anise and ginger, brambles, milk chocolate, sweet tobacco and just a twist of black pepper at the finish.

Final Thoughts: From the closure of Auchtertool in 1927, to the opening of 5 new distilleries in the 21stcentury, Cameronbridge stood alone in Fife, with no malt companion to its grain. This dram is tribute to what a tragedy that is. Rich, sweet, complex and proof that Fife Strength (56.3%) is both delicious and dangerously drinkable.
