Cù Bòcan 2005 Vintage, 50%

Price: $65 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The latest vintage expression of Tomatin's peated Cù Bòcan was aged in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks. Fishy smoke on the nose, with ripe red apples, toffee, milk chocolate, and malt. Creamy mouthfeel; ripe pears in peat smoke, sweet spices. White pepper, plain chocolate, and a lick of licorice in the relatively long and lively finish. (11,400 bottles)
