Cù Bòcan Single Malt Whisky. Image courtesy Tomatin.This lightly peated whisky from Tomatin is named after a mythical creature said to roam the Scottish Highlands. As for the whisky, it has a smoky and sweet nose with grilled pineapple, mango, and papaya notes, ginger root, a touch of brown sugar, and a light hint of campfire smoke. The taste is sweet and spicy with grilled fruits, black pepper, and a soft smokiness with notes of vanilla and honey underneath. The finish is long and rich with a good balance. (October, 2013)
