Tomatin Cu Bocan Single Cask Release (1x 70cl)

During the last week of every year, Tomatin Distillery use lightly peated barley to produce their Cù Bòcan whisky.  This spirit is filled into 1st fill ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry and Virgin Oak casks.

"Why 'Cù Bòcan'?" we hear you ask...

Cù Bòcan has stalked residents of the remote Highland village of Tomatin for centuries, his legend embellished by the hound's increasingly fractious behaviour. Sightings are rare, once in a generation, but are always terrifying. A distillery worker, out walking late, was once relentlessly pursued by an imposing black beast, steam spiralling from flared nostrils, teeth bared. Compelled beyond all natural reason to feel the hound's dense fur he stopped and reached out, hand trembling, only to see the ghostly spectre - Cù Bòcan - dissolve before his eyes leaving nothing but a vacuum of deathly silence and an inky blue cloud of smoke, soon spirited away across the peat moorland… 

The legend of  Cù Bòcan lives on in this lightly peated single malt Scotch Whisky from Tomatin Distillery. 

You are initially hit with aromas of coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute, but only drifting past the nose. There is a mesmeric mix of lime, grapefruit and tangerines with rich almond and aniseed. The palate is initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke; toasted almonds. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic elegance. Imagine a café latte with fresh chocolate shavings. The finish is light with a hint of sweet smoke.
