Cu Bocan 1988 (28 year old) 51.5%

ABV: 51.5
Bottle size: 70
Primary Cask: American oak
Secondary Cask: European Sherry
Finishing Cask: Ex Islay
In stock

Bourbon and sherry matured unpeated spirit, finished in ex-Islay (I know the distillery but I'm not allowed to say!) casks.
Dist: 1988 Btl: 2016
Tasted: June 2016
A lovely, mature and fruity nose, which opens with the dusty American oak, followed by vibrant citrus, juicy kumquat, tangerine and apricot. A touch of rose petal, herbal sherry and slightly woody peat appears along with some late earthy peat and dunnage.

The palate is full, ultra soft and barley'd with hints of vanilla and subtle sherry notes. Layered and spicy with the dry peat coming through, ably emphasised by the alcohol. Subtly salty with a long, coffee, dark chocolate and dunnage finish. It does end a little on the dry side but the rich, spicy fruit offsets.
