A specialist small batch bottling, Timorous Beastie has been created using only the finest Highland Malts including Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch. The name Timorous Beastie comes from Robert Burns’ famous Scots poem ‘To a Mouse’; in which it is immortalised as a timid little field mouse. However this Timorous Beastie is certainly not for the fainthearted!
Overridingly sweet initially, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones.
Opens in a spicy style with fructiferous notes of raisin and a sugary, fudgey character.
Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue
