Douglas Laing Timorous Beastie

/Douglas Laing Timorous Beastie

Spirit Description



Alcohol by Volume: 46.8% (93.6 PROOF)
Origination: Highland Malt, Scotland

History: The original Timorous Beastie, immortalized 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! Timorous Beastie captures the essence of The Highlands; a marriage of the region’s finest Malts including Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch. It is, of course, proudly without coloring or chill-filtration and bottled at 46.8% alcohol, resulting in an oily, chewy spirit that brings an incredible mouth-feel.

Notes: On the nose it is overridingly sweet initially, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones.

It opens up in a spicy style with fructiferous notes of raisin and a sugary, fudgey character. The finish is subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavor, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.

Formats: 750ml / 6 bottles
