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, this blended malt 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! Timorous Beastie captures the true essence of The Highlands in a marriage of the region's finest Single Malts, including those distilled at amongst others Blair Athol, Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch Distilleries. A big and bold Blended 100% Malt matured in Bourbon casks for a sweetly vanilla’d, sugary style. Timorous by name but not by nature, our Timorous Beastie is proudly bottled without colouring or chill-filtration, resulting in a big, full-bodied and mouth-coating character that leaves you wanting to come back for more ...
Nose: 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, vanilla character
Finish: Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.
