We have done so many Tomatin – this is number seven – at this point there’s not a lot to say. Tomatin Cù Bòcan – near as I can tell this one translates to something about dogs which makes sense because it tasted like flea and tick shampoo. This is the first whisky to ever receive the numerologically improbable rating of fuck you out of ten.
The website seems to imply some kind of rebrand, originally this was only distilled for one week of the year. Now it appears to be its own flagship so who knows. Here’s what we thought:
Dan – plum, pepper, salt water, kind of musty
Simon – sharp, then mash, wine, root beer, cheese
Dan – burnt pecans, molasses, medicinal cherry or licorice, spice, bergamot
Simon – it stings as it burns. lips numb, burnt chocolate, spice
Dan – post antibiotic liquid
Simon – “what the fuck” my whole mouth is on fire
Dan – bitter burnt nuts with dried molasses
Simon – apple piss, still burns
overall – accents are bad for whisky
Dan – 3/10
Simon – fuck you/10
Try it? Fuck no. Buy it? Maybe as a cologne.
