April 10, 2014 – During a recent WhiskyCast interview, Tomatin distillery manager Graham Eunson hinted at more releases under the distillery’s Cù Bòcan brand. Now, Tomatin is releasing a limited-edition 1989 vintage of Cù Bòcan stemming from a happy accident in June of that year. At that time, Tomatin did not use peated malt in any of its whiskies, but accidentally wound up with a batch that was distilled and filled into ex-Bourbon casks for maturation. The Cù Bòcan 1989 uses the three remaining casks from that production run.
The whisky has been bottled at 53.2% ABV, with 1,080 bottles to be available worldwide except for the US at a recommended retail price of £199.99 GBP ($335 USD).
