Product Description

This non coloured, non-chill-filtered Small Batch bottling by Douglas Laing. is a marriage of appropriately aged and selected Highland Malts - including, amongst others, those distilled at Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne distilleries.  Bottled at an un-filtered 46.8% alcohol.

Overridingly sweet on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley & spicy honeyed tones. The palate opens in a spicy style - fructiferous, mellow, with sugary vanilla. The finish is at first subtle, but runs to a sweet character that carries an oaky quality plus a late meringue style.

  1. Smooth sea brine 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2018

    Timorous Beastie is a blend of Highland malts. The name was taken from a Robert Burns poem called “To A Mouse.” Timorous Beastie has more bite than the name would imply, starting off pleasantly sweet and turning into a quick burn in the mouth and throat.
    Vital Stats: Non-chilled, vatted Highland malt blend. Packaged in a dark brown bottle. Syrupy in appearance, clings to the glass.
    Eye: A lighter, brighter whisky, yellow gold as opposed to the more common deep amber hue.
    Nose: While the alcohol is relatively potent in the nose, turning to a salt sea spray on a chill, windy day.
    Mouth: Hits the tongue like warm honey, with floral notes and a touch of ocean brine. A slight burn develops after swallowing, but Timorous Beastie mostly stays sweet and smooth. Finishes with notes of peppery spice. The initial burn rapidly fades to a very pleasant warming sensation in the chest. I don't personally agree with the "overridingly sweet on the nose" and the various "boiled fruits" reviews, but I enjoyed it as a casual dram and would certainly give it another go.
