Timorous Beastie

‘Twas six nights before Christmas, when all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse!

Not just the situation in Jake from Master of Malt’s home, but also in the homes of all those with Whisky Advent Calendars. In the latter case though, the mouse in question is fortunately none other than Douglas Laing’s Timorous Beastie! A tongue in cheek name for a corker of a Highland blended malt that’s created by the jolly folk behind one of my other favourites, Big Peat at Christmas. (Plus, I like his beard.)

Timorous Beastie is made exclusively with malts from Highland distilleries including Dalmore, Glen Garioch and Glengoyne!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt for Timorous Beastie:

Nose: Acacia honey, creamy boiled sweeties (the strawberry flavour), dried apricots and white grapes. There’s a good whack of Sherry influence in here too! A whiff of coastal air and classic Highland heather, too.

Palate: Dried fruits, green apples and anise. Sweet grist and malt loaf. Pebble beaches and more heather on the mid palate.

Finish: Long. Drying with hot cinnamon sweeties and fresh bread.

Overall: Who are you calling timorous? This beastie is big, brave and an absolute blast!”
