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 regions 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: Wonderfully sweet – warming to Oloroso, barley, honey and spices plus soft macerated summer fruit Palate: As spiced as “the original” but now detect grist, honey and raisins enhanced by crunched demerara sugar Finish: Gently warming peppery spices to the fore – and now cocoa, vanilla and burnt meringue show through too.
