Tomatin Cù Bòcan Bourbon Cask Limited Edition (70cl, 46%) ***sold***
The third in a trilogy showcasing the casks that make up Cù Bòcan, this has been fully matured in bourbon casks. Named after the mythical hellhound that has stalked the village of Tomatin for centuries. Just 6,000 bottles were produced.
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.
