This experimental Highland Single Malt is distilled every winter in limited batches and made with lightly peated Scottish barley for its signature wisp of smoke. Cù Bòcan explores innovative maturations to create whiskies full of intrigue and surprise. Its Signature malt is matured in Bourbon,Oloroso sherry and North American virgin oak casks and offers an exploration into the subtleties of smoke, the character of the casks and the mastery of maturation.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the range is non-chill filtered, natural in colour and carries no age statement. An unusually creative collaboration, this intriguing mix marries the best bits of its wine and beer counterparts; sweet and buttery with hints of orange marmalade and espresso.
The Signature has a dry and fragrant nose, with woodsmoke, dried lemon peel and a little vanilla, then orchard fruit and heather honey, with a touch of liquorice. That's not all: there's BBQ char on the palate, cooking spices and Conference pear initially, followed by orange peel and hints of leather and espresso. Muscat grapes, light smoke and a little nuttiness on the finish.
