Description

A limited vintage release from Tomatin distillery, Cu Bocan is a peat influenced whisky - but not in the usual way. Rather than simply using the lightly peated spirit that Toamtin makes for the Cu Bocan range, this cask strength 1988 vintage edition has been matured in hogsheads and sherry butts that previously held heavily peated Islay whisky. They say that, while in the casks, magic is worked by the 'untamed spirit', suggesting that these casks used to live at Ardbeg distillery. It is limited to 2200 bottles.
Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
Nose:
Delicate campfire smoke and sweet ash give way to stewed pears, Peach Melba and toasted coconut. Hints of fresh cut grass, heather and cereal linger in the background with creamy buttermilk.
Palate: Candied tropical fruits are perfectly balanced with an earthy peat tang. In time, warming dried fruit, blood orange and a gentle nut note emerge.
Finish: Earthy smoke and oak spice linger with a creamy texture.
