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.
