Description

The 6th Creation Cù Bòcan comes from Pedro Ximenez and Jamaican rum casks. It’s the PX that is noticeable initially upon taking in the aromas with dried fruit and ginger mingling in an elegant dance. The rum cask then comes to the forefront upon sipping with tropical flavours such as pineapple, but it's the creamy banana milkshake finish that is the star of the show. I’m not generally a fan of a banana note in my drinks whether it be a wheat beer or whisky, but…. and it is a big but, it works beautifully here. Maybe it’s the creamy element of the mouthfeel, maybe it’s the ever so lightly peated element helping it, either way well done Tomatin as number 6 of the Cù Bòcan is a triumph.

About this SPIRIT

Tomatin Distillery

Tomatin Distillery

Tomatin Distillery (pronounced Tom-at-in) means `Hill of the Juniper' in the Gaelic language. As a distilling site, illicit or otherwise, Tomatin goes back to the 15th Century when drovers - men who `drove' their cattle to market over high mountain passes - would fill up their whisky flasks from a still alongside the Old Laird's House. It was built on the site in 1897 by the Tomatin Spey District Distillery Co.

Its heydays were from 1950s to 1974 that witnessed  a steep increase in its production to almost 12 million litres a year,  which made Tomatin the largest Scotch whisky distillery in the world in terms of capacity  at the time.

The distillery was acquired by a Japanese venture in 1986, that established the current Tomatin Distillery Company Limited, and launched the modern era of whisky distilling in the Monadhliath Mountains.

The whisky is subtle and quite flavoursome. Stylistically it sits mid-way between  light, Highland single malts and other richer, lushier Speyside malts.
