Douglas Laing’s Timorous Beastie is most certainly not for the fainthearted! This non-coloured, non-chill-filtered Small Batch bottling is a marriage of appropriately aged and selected Highland Malts – including, amongst others, those distilled at Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne distilleries.
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: Overridingly sweet initially, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones.
Palate: Opens in a spicy style with fructiferous notes of raisin and a sugary, fudgey character.
Finish: Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.
