Tomatin’s smoky series of single malts, Cù Bòcan, received a bit of a redesign in mid-2019, receiving new bottles and new expressions – like this one! Cù Bòcan Signature is a lightly peated expression that has been drawn from a trio of casks; bourbon casks, Oloroso sherry casks and North American virgin oak casks. No chill-filtration or additional colours for this one, just fruit-forward, softly smoky whisky.
Nose: Coconut ice, lemons on the BBQ, a touch of white chocolate and strawberries.
Palate: Richer on the palate than on the note, with chewy caramel and dates. Still retails a hint of BBQ char.
Finish: Cooking spices slowly build, with a touch of apple and peach.
