Tasting Notes

Timorous Beastie 40 Year Old represents an incredibly exciting limited release from leading independent Scotch Whisky specialist, Douglas Laing & Co. Bottled at cask strength without any chill-filtration, and limited to just 1,080 bottles, the blend is composed from a range of fine, rare aged whiskies. Beautifully packaged, the cartoon mouse depicted on the label is inspired by Rabbie Burns' famous poem 'To A Mouse'. Brimful of flavour and piquancy, Timorous Beastie is initially sweet on the nose, before opening up to reveal floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones. The palate is spicy and flavoursome, with a mellow, raisiny core, plus notes of fudge and toffee apple.  The finish is subtle yet sweet with nuances of cereals and meringue. However cute the packaging may be, this is a very serious whisky with wonderful balance and plenty of complexity.
