Cù Bòcan Single Malt has released two limited-edition expressions within its Creation series: Creation #3 matured in Moroccan Cabernet Sauvignon and North American Rye casks, and Creation #4 which has been matured in a combination of Tawny Port and Cognac casks.
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.
The tastes and smells of a Moroccan souk are brought to life with the Cabernet Sauvignon casks used for the Cù Bòcan Creation #3, offering notes of rose water, strawberry and black fig, whilst the North American Rye casks bring the exotic spice, citrus and tropical fruits to the fore.
Cù Bòcan Creation #4 is a nod to The Antrim Cocktail, marrying two of Europe’s favourite drinks, Port and Cognac. The result is a medley of plum jam, grilled peach, stewed forest fruit, cinnamon and sweet campfire smoke.
The current Cù Bòcan range now comprises of three products. Cù Bòcan Signature is the only ongoing product within the range, matured in Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry and North American Virgin Oak casks, and the latest two creations.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the Cù Bòcan range is non-chill filtered, natural in colour and carries a no age statement. Creation #3 and Creation #4 are limited releases, each with only 4,200 bottles available worldwide.
Graham Nicolson, Sales Director, commented: “We are delighted to finally be able to release these two new Creations to our customers. We’re excited for all that 2022 has in store for Cù Bòcan and looking forward to opening up the world of lightly peated whisky, whilst continuing to explore unusual and intriguing finishes.”
Cù Bòcan is available in specialist shops with an RSP of £45 and £60 per 70cl bottle for the Signature, and Creations #3 and #4 respectively.
