Cu Bocan has stalked residents of the remote highland village of Tomatin for many centuries. His legend embellished by the Hellhound's increasingly fractious behavior.
As a 'tribute,' Tomatin have produced this lightly peated whisky, which has been matured in a combination of ex bourbon, ex sherry and virgin oak casks.
Aroma: Coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. Smoke emerges after about a minute or so, followed by a mix of lime, refreshing grapefruit and tangerines with rich almond and aniseed.
Palate: Initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic elegance.
Finish: Light with a hint of sweet smoke.
