"Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, immortalised in the famous Scots poem "To a Mouse", was a timid, little field mouse.
Echoing our national bard's wit, ours is most certainly not for the fainthearted! This non coloured, 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. Incredibly sweet on the nose, with light floral and spicy honey tones. The palate is spicy, and sugary, carrying notes of raisin fudge, with a sweet yet subtle finish." - Douglas Laing
Image is for illustration purposes only.
Nose: overridingly sweet on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley & spicy honeyed tones.
Palate: the palate opens in a spicy style - fructiferous, mellow, with sugary vanilla.
Finish: the finish is at first subtle, but runs to a sweet character that carries an oaky quality plus a late meringue style.
