Tomatin Single Malt - Cu Bocan


Basic Info

Cù Bòcan has stalked residents of the remote Highland village of Tomatin for centuries, his legend embellished by the hellhound’s increasingly fractious behaviour.
Sightings are rare, once in a generation, 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 - CùBòcan - 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…


Tasting Notes:
AROMA: Coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute followed by a mix of lime, grapefruit and tangerines with rich almond and aniseed.
PALATE: Initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic elegance.
FINISH: Light with a hint of sweet smoke.
