DOUGLAS LAING'S 'TIMOROUS BEASTIE' 18YO 700ML 46.8%
Bottled by Douglas Laing, an independent bottler of fine Scotch whisky established in 1948. The concept is to enable whisky lovers around the world a chance to come s close as they can to sampling whisky as it was straight from the cask or having a whisky experience like no other.
The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns’ famous Scottish poem “To a Mouse” was a timid little field mouse. Echoing our natural bard’s wit. This whisky is most certainly not for the fainthearted.
This non chill-filtered “vatted malt” is a marriage of whisky aged no less than 18 years and selected highland malts – including, amongst others, those distilled at Blair Athol, Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne distilleries. Bottled at 46.8% abv.
