Cù Bòcan Bourbon Cask 46% ABV

tomatin-cu-bocan-bourbon-cask-whisky

Fully matured in bourbon casks, just 6,000 bottles were produced.


Appearance: Light gold, white wine. A sequence of beads forms the swirl line and slow forming thin legs form on an oily film.

Nose: Petrichor, spring water, light spices, eucalyptus, lemon again. Although the same ABV, this one has more ethanol on the nose. There’s a subtle almost sherried aroma, mixed in with wood notes and a floral quality.

Palate: Lovely and sweet with a peppery edge, like pepper dusted tropical fruits. Again, slightly drying. There’s that fruity sharpness running through it, which is becoming a signature tasting note for these guys.
A custard vanilla note emerges in a slightly more mature glass, there’s also some raspberry jam and salt.
Rhubarb and custard sweets!

Finish: The finish for me is pepper dusted Rhubarb and custard sweets and a slight salinity. Medium in length.

Overall: Lovely but I can’t help but want a CS version to enhance those flavours and punch.
