Cù Bòcan Single Malt has released a brand-new age-stated whisky to its range, Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old.
The new expression has been matured in Caribbean rum casks which, combined with Cù Bòcan’s subtly smoky spirit, has resulted in flavours of grilled pineapple, sea salt, ginger and white chocolate.
Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old has been bottled at 46% ABV is available in specialist shops with an RSP of £65 per 700ml bottle.
Scott Adamson, Blender and Global Brand Ambassador, commented: “This permanent addition to the Cù Bòcan range will be released in batches. With each batch we will explore casks from across the Caribbean, each with their own unique origin, history, and influence.”
Cù Bòcan is marking the release of the 12 Year Old by once again partnering with chef Tony Singh, who is visiting Inverness this weekend to create and serve some street food. Cù Bòcan will pair Tony’s dishes with drams and whisky cocktails, with all proceeds from the weekend going directly to Maggies Highlands.
It’s been a busy time for the Inverness-based distiller of late; it released the fifth instalment in its Creation Series earlier this year and is celebrating recent wins at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2023.
The current Cù Bòcan range now comprises of Cù Bòcan Signature, the Creation series, Cù Bòcan 12 Year Old and Cù Bòcan 15 Year Old.
The experimental Highland Single Malt is distilled every winter at Tomatin Distillery in limited batches and made with lightly peated Scottish barley for its signature wisp of smoke.
