Tomatin Cu Bocan Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky
This product is currently sold out.
Cù Bòcan is a mythical hellhound who has stalked the residents of the village of Tomatin for centuries. As a 'tribute' to him, Tomatin have produced this lightly peated whisky, which has been matured in a combination of ex bourbon, ex sherry and virgin oak casks. For one week every year, the Highland distillery makes a peated whisky instead of their traditionally unpeated expressions. This ghostly edition has been peated to 15ppm. Don't worry about it evaporating after touching it though. We're sure that's just an old wives' tale. Hopefully. The nose on Tomatin Cu Bocan offers a springy citrus blend of oranges and grapefruits which leads into a fresh, floral bloom. On the palate, smoke starts to seep through slowly, growing ever so slightly the longer it's on the tongue. Subtle sweet chillies pop up, as well as a nutty note or two. It has a medium finish, with a final flash of the spectral smoke.
