An eight-year-old Highland single malt released to commemorate the forthcoming opening of the John Crabbie & Co. distillery in Edinburgh. Paying tribute to John Crabbie's flagship eight-year-old blend, which was created in the 19th century, this has tempting flavours of honeyed fruits, flowers and spices.
The company's history with spirits goes back to 1801, when John's father Miller opened a shop in Edinburgh, and was principally concerned with bottling and shipping cordials and whiskies around the world.
Nose: Caramel, raisin and honey-coated peanuts.
Palate: Buttered scones, waxy orange peel and a touch of cassia.
Finish: Lingering orange oil sweetness.
