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…
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, vanilla character.
FINISH: Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.
A HEARTY HIGHLAND MALT: 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.
UNLEASH THE BEAST: Timorous by name but not by nature, our Timorous Beastie is proudly bottled at the strength of 46.8% and offered to you without colouring or chill-filtration, resulting a big, full-bodied and mouth-coating character that is truly moreish…
TIMOROUS BEASTIE 10 YEARS OLD: Produced in particularly small batches, Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old is a beautifully aged partner to the classic Timorous Beastie bottling. Savour a nose that is so very sweet - think sugar and syrup added to spiced autumnal fruit. The palate is equally dulcet, with honey, the gentlest spices and a distinct cereal character, an ode to its Bourbon cask maturation.
