Product details

Cù Bòcan (pronounced ‘coo-bock-can’) is the name for Tomatin Distillery’s smoky series of single malts, and this is the Signature release! The series is named after a local legend about a ghost-like dog that wanders the Scottish Highlands, though once it’s touched it disappears into a cloud of smoke.

Tomatin distils its peated barley for the series during just one week a year in the winter, so each batch is limited. This is no peat bomb, rather a gently smoky expression, and was drawn from a trio of ex-bourbon, ex-Oloroso sherry, and North American virgin oak casks. The bourbon gives those classic tropical, creamy nuances, while the sherry cask imparts drier spices and coffee flavours, and the virgin oak brings a refreshing, clean, and subtly zesty dimension to the whisky.
