Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, immortalized in Robert Burns' famous Scots poem "To a Mouse", was a timid, little field mouse, is most certainly not for the fainthearted! This non-coloured, non-chill-filtered Small Batch bottling is a marriage of appropriately aged and selected Highland Malts - including, amongst others, those distilled at Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne distilleries. Despite the name, this is a whisky of powerful flavor! Intense tropical fruits and soft Highland spices lead this whisky. The palate is rich with honey and malt notes, accompanied by a dense chewy mouthfeel.
Over ridingly sweet on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley & spicy honeyed tones. The palate opens in a spicy style - fructiferous, mellow, with sugary vanilla. The finish is at first subtle, but runs to a sweet character that carries an oaky quality plus a late meringue style. ABV46.8
