Douglas Laings Timorous Beastie Highland Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns' famous Scots poem "To a Mouse", was a timid, little field mouse. This non colored, 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.
Overridingly 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.
