Tomatin Cù Bòcan 2006 Vintage a Decade Old Scotch

The Tomatin Cù Bòcan 2006 represents the latest in a long running line of bottlings tied to “a mythical Highland hellhound which was rumoured to haunt the village of Tomatin.” It also continues the tradition of offering up a lightly peated alternative to the traditional fruity flavors of the more regular Tomatin single malts.

The Tomatin Cù Bòcan 2006, according to those behind it, is a 50% ABV expression which aged for around a decade in a combination of ex-sherry and bourbon casks before being bottled. It is packaged in a box and includes with it a free branded glass.

Plans call for 9,000 bottles of this Scotch to be released across different markets. It is both natural colored and non-chill filtered, and you’ll find official tasting notes for it below from Tomatin for your consideration.

Aroma: Malty chocolate meets burnt butterscotch with a hint of citrus zest, lingering over the remnants of a Highland campfire.

Palate: Festive flavours of cloves, cinnamon and orange peel are accompanied by sweet vanilla custard with
underlying notes of light and earthy smoke.

Finish: Long lasting, sweet and full. Chocolate and winter spices continue to dwell on the palate.

As the founder of The Whiskey Wash, I'm crazy about whiskey, I can tell you, and I aim to share this passion with you through this site. As for my professional background, I’m a writer and journalist by trade and an Internet dot-com veteran prior to that. My most recent venture prior to this was as the founder and editor-in-chief of EarthTechling, a leading consumer focused green technology news website. I also have an extensive collection of whiskies from both start up distilleries and centuries old operations in Scotland alike, sprinkled with some other odds and ends from around the world, that have provided me with a unique picture of what’s going on with this wonderful spirit.
