Cu Bocan Single Malt
Lightly peated single malt matured in a compelling combination of Virgin Oak, Bourbon and Sherry casks. Released for the first time in October 2013.
On the nose, you are initially hit with coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute, but only drifting past the nose. A mesmeric mix of lime, grapefruit and tangerines with rich almond and aniseed.
The taste is initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke; toasted almonds. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic elegance. Imagine a café latte with fresh chocolate shavings. The finish is light with a hint of sweet smoke.
“Why ‘Cù Bòcan’?” we hear you ask…
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 – Cù Bòcan – 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…
The legend of Cù Bòcan lives on in this lightly peated single malt Scotch Whisky from Tomatin Distillery. What are you waiting for?
