Timorous Beastie Whisky distillery

Timorous Beastie is a Scotch whisky with a unique character. It's a blended malt, made from single malts from several distilleries but without any grain whisky. The name comes from Robert Burns' poem "To a Mouse". It reflects the brand's connection to Scottish culture.

Profile and Production

Douglas Laing & Co., an independent family-owned company, produces Timorous Beastie. They have been making whisky since 1948. They are known for their blending skills. Timorous Beastie is a blend of Highland malts. It includes single malts from distilleries like Dalmore, Glengoyne, and Glen Garioch.

Timorous Beastie does not have an age statement. This lets the blenders choose whiskies based on flavour, not age. The whisky is bottled at a higher proof and is non-chill-filtered. This keeps its full body and natural flavours. Douglas Laing does not add artificial colouring to their whiskies.

Tasting Notes

Timorous Beastie's flavour is robust and complex. It has sweet, floral, and fruity notes on the nose. You can smell honey, apples, and pears, with a bit of spice. The taste follows with honey, fruitcake, and toasted oak. It finishes warm, long, and slightly spicy.

Packaging and Presentation

The packaging reflects Scottish tradition. It features a mouse and old-style script. The look is charming and rustic. It matches the authenticity of the whisky.

Serving and Enjoyment

Timorous Beastie is great neat or with a drop of water. It also works in cocktails that need a rich, malt-forward Scotch.
