Cù Bòcan unveils Creation 6

Highland malt brand reveals limited edition release

Cù Bòcan has unveiled the latest launch with its Creation #6 which has been matured in both a PX sherry cask as well as Jamaican Rum.

AWARD winning Highland whisky brand Cù Bòcan, the experimental range of whisky expressions distilled at the Tomatin distillery, has unveiled a new limited-edition single malt with Creation #6.

Each new limited expression from Cù Bòcan is distilled every winter at the Tomatin distillery.

This year’s expression has been made with lightly peated Scottish barley and is a fusion of liquid that has been matured in both a Pedro Ximenez Sherry cask for nine years before moving to a Jamaican Rum cask for 10 years.

The resulting dram comes bottled at 46% ABV and is non-chill filtered with an RRP of £60 per bottle.

On the palate, Cù Bòcan Creation #6 has been described as having a dark depth of flavour which begins with amaretto cherries and salted-coated liquorice before moving towards a spiced plum jam with a kick of Fisherman’s Friend lozenges with a lingering treacle finish.

The latest release also comes in Cù Bòcan’s unique bespoke bottle design with ascending contours engraved into the glass to emulate the signature wisp of smoke in the whisky’s character.

Scott Adamson, blender and global brands ambassador at Tomatin Distillery, said: “Cù Bòcan is renowned for exploring innovative maturations, creating whiskies full of flavour guaranteed to bring intrigue and surprise.

“Continuing this tradition, Creation #6 is a bold experiment where Europe and the Caribbean meet to create a whisky that is rich, sweet and lively.

“Infused with the signature subtle smoke and vibrant rum and raisin, it promises an unforgettable sensory journey.”
