Customer Rating
Cù Bòcan is a mythical hellhound who has stalked the residents of the village of Tomatin for centuries. As a 'tribute' to him, Tomatin have produced this lightly peated whisky, which has been matured in a combination of ex bourbon, ex sherry and virgin oak casks.

Tomatin Cu Bocan Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Note

    Aroma: Coconuts and cream with some botanic notes, parsley and coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute followed by a mix of lime, 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.

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable whisky. I was actually surprised to find a bottle on sale at my local market. I will definitely buy again, and at full retail price.

    A bourbon drinker from the states, I took a lovely tour of speyside and drank as many malts as I could. This was included in one tasting, and it was one of my favorites. An easy drinking whisky, yet having a very distinct taste. A rare combination. I wish I had purchased more than one bottle at the distillery.

    Stopped by the Tomatin distillery on my way up to Inverness and bought a bottle after sampling a few of their drams. Normally a fan of peaty malts and this lightly peated expression piqued my interest over their classic single malts. P.s Lovely location and distillery tour too.

    Beautiful lingering taste. But MUST not be spelt with an 'e' in 'whisky' !

    Recommended by a member of staff in the London shop, for a lightly smoked whiskey with a depth of flavours coming through. This blows your supermarket stocked whiskey out of the water. You wont want to go back to ASDA stocked Glenmorangie/Grants/Glenfiddich after this. Cu Bocan is much more interesting.

    Very easy drinking. Biscuity and morish. I drank it side by side the (now) ?199 30yo Tomatin, and it was almost as good.

    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.
