Tomatin - Cù Bòcan - Tasting Notes

Tasted the Tomatin Cù Bòcan from a sample sent by Dave from Whisky Discovery.  Cù Bòcan is a mythical hell hound who has stalked the residents of the village of Tomatin for centuries. This lightly peated whisky at 15ppm has been matured in a combination of ex bourbon, ex sherry and virgin oak casks and bottled at 46% abv. More information is to be found on

Smoke, tangerines, lemon twist, biscuits, toffee, creamy, dark chocolate, smoky bbq sauce, bit meaty...
Cinnamon bread and citrus freshness come trough from behind the stronger notes of smoke and dark chocolate.

Creamy dark chocolate with a whiff of smoke and almonds. Citrus notes with some minty freshness, biscuits, toffee, vanilla, raisin, oranges, grapefruit and dried apricots

Medium length finish, sweet vanilla and chocolate

Balanced dram, need a bit of time to open up, and reveal the lighter and sweeter flavors. Scored it a 7 at first due to being closed a bit, but thinking of maybe 7,5. It reveals in the end after some time great juicy notes. Thanks Dave for sharing this one with us!
