Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1988 Cù Bòcan

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: full and juicy, cooked fruits, especially pear, also some apricot, in addition peach jam, creamy, also some coconut is to be found. The peat is noticeable, but not very strong, is also more likely to smoke / smoldering wood fire. In addition, a clear sweetness, which lies like a icing on the whole impressions. In the background, the oak comes to fruition with a deep spiciness

    Taste: first slightly fruity, then the peat is very clear, mineral, almost iodine

    Finish: long, earthy peat with dried fruits and very strong and dry oak, the sweetness of the nose is gone

    The nose is great, but in the taste and just in the finish he flattens off. Unfortunately, he does not hold what the nose promises 85 points

  2. Shane_IL scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

     It had a good deal of complexity, and some genuinely interesting notes to it, but I felt like I had to work hard to find those notes, there wasn’t anything that really stuck out and would make me remember this or want to try it again, especially at over 200 Euros for a bottle.

      Dusty fruits. Juicy fruit gum. Pencil erasers. Pencil shavings. Coal dust. Peaches. Dry grass left in the sun (school sports fields). Rich caramel. Oranges. Banana flavouring.
    • Taste
      A bit weak for such a high ABV. Dry wood. Woodshavings. Bitter citrus. Rubber.
    • Finish
      Medium. Bitter fruits and wood tannins.

  3. Drochaid scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Cù Bòcan have unleashed a different kind of beast. This special limited edition Cù Bòcan has been crafted by marrying refill Hogshead and refill Sherry butt matured whisky distilled on 2nd December 1988.

    In their past lives, the casks were home to one of Islay’s peatiest potions and hints of the untamed spirit have been working their smoky magic over the years. The final creation – earthy, oaky and sweet - is now ready to be devoured.

    Nose: Delicate campfire smoke and sweet ash give way to stewed pears, Peach Melba and toasted coconut. Hints of fresh cut grass, heather and cereal linger in the background with creamy buttermilk.

    Mouth: Candied tropical fruits are perfectly balanced with an earthy peat tang. In time, warming dried fruit, blood orange and a gentle nut note emerge.

    Finish: Earthy smoke and oak spice linger with a creamy texture.
