Cù Bòcan Bourbon Edition Last Whisky In A Cask Series

By Nino Marchetti / August 11, 2015

Cù Bòcan Bourbon EditionScotland’s Tomatin distillery has been on a bit of a roll this year with the new releases, including its limited edition 36 year old whisky and a cask strength bottling. Joining these as well was Cù Bòcan Virgin Oak Edition, the second in a limited series of offerings exploring the different cask types used in the regular Cù Bòcan, and now the final expression – this one aged in first fill bourbon barrels – has just come to market also.

The new Cù Bòcan Bourbon Edition, limited to 6,000 bottles globally (except for the USA), was bottled at 46% ABV and looks to be a non-age statement release. Full official tasting notes are below for this non-chill filtered Scotch from Tomatin, and as for price, expect to pay around £50, or about $78 USD.

Nose: Toffee and honey are prominent. The smoke is distant at first but continues to emerge and then slowly fades to reveal pineapple and pear drops. A rich and creamy vanilla custard lingers.

Mouth: Velvety smooth coconut and vanilla. Milk chocolate covered marshmallows, almonds and toffee. Citrus fruits, especially orange and lime, have a significant presence.

Finish: Long lasting and sweet.
