The Tomatin Distillery, has today announced the launch of two new vintage limited-edition expressions, from its Cù Bòcan single malt Scotch whisky range.

Cù Bòcan 2003 Vintage (46% ABV) has been matured in peated Islay ex-sherry butts. Cù Bòcan 1990 Vintage (52,9% ABV) has been matured in peated Islay ex-bourbon barrels.

Cù Bòcan 1990 and 2003 vintages

The Cù Bòcan brand, is named after a mythical Highland hellhound which was rumoured to haunt the village of Tomatin, and was launched in 2013 as a lightly peated alternative to the traditional fruity flavours of Tomatin single malt.

These latest releases follow previous limited editions including the 2006 vintage in 2017, the 1988 and 2005 vintages in 2016, the Virgin Oak, Sherry and Bourbon expressions in 2015 and the 1989 vintage in 2014.

Commenting on the launch, Lorraine Waddell, Brand Manager at Tomatin, said: “As the Cù Bòcan brand continues to grow – sales have grown 15% year to date on last year – our followers have been eagerly awaiting news of the next limited editions to complement the standard edition, which is available all year round.”

The new Cù Bòcan 2003 and 1990 vintage, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £85.00 and £230.00.
