Tomatin Cù Bòcan Bottling Note

The story behind this Tomatin comes from the legend of a spectral dog, Cù Bòcan, who has haunted the Highland village for countless years. It was once seen by a distillery worker who, after initially running away, felt compelled to touch the dog's fur. As he reached out his hand, the dog dissipated into a plume of ghostly smoke over the moorlands...

For one week every year, the Highland distillery makes a peated whisky instead of their traditionally unpeated expressions. This ghostly edition has been peated to 15ppm and matured in a mix of virgin oak, bourbon and sherry casks. Don't worry about it evaporating after touching it though. We're sure that's just an old wives' tale. Hopefully.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A springy citrus blend of oranges and grapefruits which leads into a fresh, floral bloom.

Palate: Smoke starts to seep through slowly, growing ever so slightly the longer it's on the tongue. Subtle sweet chillies pop up, as well as a nutty note or two.

Finish: Medium, with a final flash of the spectral smoke.

User Reviews of the Tomatin Cù Bòcan

A nice peated highland malt.

I was bought a bottle of this for my birthday. I must concur with the previous review about the complexity of it as I am also an Islay lover. Also, do not be put off by its NAS status. I am usually quite suspicious of NAS whisky but heartily recommend this.

I am an Islay lover, so to find a highland with as much complexity was a treat. I think the description in the "Mystical dram" review is right on and cannot be improved upon. A smooth easy drinking whisky.
I prefer it neat.

Mystical dram

This thin bodied dram has got a beatiful full gold color to it. The nose represents a noteable floral expression, accompanied by hints of grass. The palate is quite pronounced with smokey characteristics. It doesn't offend, it invites. The finish is smooth, a tad short though, adding some more smoke and a faint peat feeling in the background.

All in all a sublime drink, powered by it's mystical background. The supreme presentation of both the box and the bottle makes this whisky a great experience.

At a recent whisky festival in Inverness, after sampling (too many) different whiskies this was the one I went back for.
I enjoy easy to drink malts rather than the more extreme peaty or smoky variety and this fits the bill to perfection. I am not an expert so do not use all their over elaborate flowery descriptions. Quite simply, this is an extremely nice dram, especially with a few drops of water.
I will be buying it again.
