Tomatin Cù Bòcan inspired by mythical beast
Tomatin distillery has unveiled a new Scotch whisky named after a mythical highland hellhound – Cù Bòcan.
Legend has it after being stalked by the ghostly spectre, a Tomatin distillery worker reached out to touch the fur of Cù Bòcan, when the beast dissolved in front of his eyes and spirited away across the peat moorland.
This ghostly encounter inspired Tomatin’s new release – a single malt Scotch whisky matured in a combination of virgin oak, Bourbon and sherry casks.
Cù Bòcan is described as having an aroma of “coconuts and cream, botanic notes, grapefruit and tangerine with almonds and aniseed” with a taste of “light smoke intertwined with citrus and spices.”
Now available worldwide, Cù Bòcan is bottled at 46% abv and carries an RRP of £43.99.
