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.

    It's ok but I have had better, however I am not a major fan of highland malts. If you like Islay or Speyside then this might not be for you.

    I have just sampled this at Leicester Whisky Festival and was an instant favourite. It was the first one I sampled and loved it. After having an evening of sampling many different whiskies I went back to this to see if still ticked the boxes and it did so had to buy it. A lovely smooth whisky, easy drinking and light smokey peaty finish that stays with you. This will definitely be on my ‘staple’ list.

    One of the nicest, smoothest single malts I have tried. The first bottle was given to me by my son for Christmas and was sampled before breakfast.

    Warm, complex, smooth with a few drops of water ... smoke comes on late, like a distant fireplace.

    Beautiful whisky. Complex flavours, a lovely fruity base (Apple? Pear?) with rich smokey overtones that dissipate quickly. Just a touch of water brings out some real notes of warm spices. I "won" at a whisky tasting evening with this, against some strong competition!

    A nice light peaty malt, with subtle hints coming through later. Really enjoyed it.

    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.
