Timorous Beastie Highland Malt Whisky
Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns' famous Scots poem "To a Mouse", was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing our national bard's wit, this whisky 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.
Nose: Overridingly sweet on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley & spicy honeyed tones.
Taste: Opens in a spicy style - fructiferous, mellow, with sugary vanilla.
Finish: At first subtle, but runs to a sweet character that carries an oaky quality plus a late meringue style.
Net weight of 70cl: 1.6kg
