While Tomatin’s original Cù Bòcan was a lightly peated single malt matured in a combination of bourbon, Sherry and virgin oak casks, this special edition showcases the Sherried notes, by being matured exclusively in Sherry casks. Only 6,000 bottles were released.
The story behind the Cù Bòcan releases is one of haunted Highland villages, ghost dogs and terrified distillery workers. Scary stuff. The story, not the whisky, the whisky’s tasty – Sherried and fruity with a hint of smoke at the core.
Cù Bòcan is matured in a combination of Sherry, Virgin Oak and Bourbon casks.
