Cù Bòcan, is relaunching with a new look and range designed to unlock the unusual.
This experimental Highland Single Malt will continue to be distilled every winter in limited batches and made with lightly peated Scottish barley for its signature wisp of smoke, but Cù Bòcan will now also explore innovative maturations to create whiskies full of intrigue and surprise.
Tomatin did it again. The distillery added another smokey and mystical whisky beast to their whisky range, Cù Bòcan 2006 vintage, a limited edition.
The Cù Bòcan brand is named after a mythical Highland hellhound which was rumoured to haunt the village of Tomatin and was launched in 2013 as a lightly peated alternative to the traditional fruity flavours of Tomatin single malt.
Highland-based Tomatin Distillery have added to their range of limited edition Cù Bòcan single malts with the release of a 2006 vintage edition.
Bottled at a strength of 50%, the whisky is matured in first fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Boasting warm, festive flavours with a gentle touch of peat smoke, it is fitting that the bottle comes with a special Cù Bòcan branded glass – ideal for gifting at this time of year. There are just 9000 bottles of this limited edition available worldwide.
Highland-based Tomatin Distillery have launched a limited 2005 vintage edition of their peated Cù Bòcan single malt.
Bottled at a strength of 50%, the whisky is stronger than its core range counterpart, and is matured in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks. Described as having aromas of butterscotch and toffee apples with flavours of candy floss and a gentle touch of peat smoke, typical of the Cù Bòcan range, there are only 11,400 bottles of this limited edition available worldwide.
Highland based Tomatin Distillery have announced the launch of a rare Vintage 1988 single malt as part of their Cù Bòcan range. The casks used to mature the spirit were home to a popular heavily peated Islay whisky in their past lives to create a unique limited edition.
Just 2200 bottles of the malt, which have been aged for 28 years in sherry casks, are available.
I couldn’t wait to have a go with this one. In the past I was very enthusiastic about another Cù Bòcan beauty.
Curiosity is a natural inquisitive behavior, a natural urge for exploration and research. Can you imagine the feeling? The feeling of falling in love over and over again? In love with whisky. What a great feeling that is, the feeling for adventure. It’s like digging up a treasure, underneath the feet, it’s a way of life. And for me? A whiskylove way of life.
Cù Bòcan is matured in a combination of Sherry, Virgin Oak and Bourbon casks. This exclusive limited edition showcases the influence that Virgin Oak has on our lightly peated single malt. Clean and zingy with hints of smoke and warm spice, this fully matured Virgin Oak limited edition will not disappoint!
