Tomatin Cù Bòcan Batch 1 Presentation 2013-19 (70cl, 46%)

Launched in 2013, Cù Bòcan is the distillery's peated single malt. This was the core release single malt prior to the repackaging of the brand in 2019.

The story behind this Tomatin comes from the legend of a spectral dog, Cù Bòcan, who has haunted the Highland village for countless years. It was once seen by a distillery worker who, after initially running away, felt compelled to touch the dog's fur. As he reached out his hand, the dog dissipated into a plume of ghostly smoke over the moorlands...

For one week every year, the Highland distillery makes a peated whisky instead of their traditionally unpeated expressions. This ghostly edition has been peated to 15ppm and matured in a mix of virgin oak, bourbon and sherry casks. No chill-filtration or additional colours.

Tomatin was once the largest distillery in Scotland, with an expansion in 1976 bringing its still count to a whopping 23 (with a capacity for 10 million litres). An over-stretch at the time, it was forced into liquidation in 1985, never having run at full capacity. The following year it became Scotland's first ever Japanese-owned distillery after it was saved by a consortium of long-term customers. Nowadays it provides the heart to the popular Antiquary blend in addition to continuing to produce a highly regarded single malt.
