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! 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 colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at 46.8% alcohol, resulting in an oily, chewy spirit that brings an incredible mouth-feel.
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, fudgey character.
Finish: Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue.
