Beautifully aged, Timorous Beastie 18 Years old is proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration. Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength, tasting notes include gentle spices, complemented by honey, vanilla and juicy barley.
The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns’ famous Scots poem “To a Mouse” was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing our national bard’s wit, ours is most certainly not for the fainthearted! Inside there’s a medley of vanilla, malted barley, meringue, honey and citrus flavours just bursting to be unleashed… Part of the Remarkable Regional Malts range, the ultimate distillation of Scotland’s Malt Whisky Regions.
Nose: Gently spiced initially on the nose, warming to honey, vanilla and juicy barley.
Palate: All are similarly apparent on the intricate palate plus a late layer of macerated dark fruit.
Finish: The finish shows cough drop spices, more of those dulcet flavours replicated from the palate, running to a bone dry finale.
