Douglas Laing have released a new limited edition whisky in their “Remarkable Regional Malts” range: Timorous Beastie “Meet the Beast”. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 54.9% and matured exclusively in ex-American Bourbon barrels, the whisky is an amped up version  of the original expression. 

Established in 2014 by Douglas Laing & Co, Timorous Beastie represents “ultimate distillation of the Highlands” in a small batch marriage of Single Malts distilled at Glengoyne, Glen Garioch, Blair Athol and Strathearn Distilleries, amongst others. 

This expression is presented in a black bottle with red seal and a gift tube, the bottle’s design stars the brand’s trademark mouse character and monochromatic colours, with flashes of bold red.

Timorous Beastie “Meet The Beast” Official Tasting Notes

Nose: A burst of sweet vanilla, complex oak and orchard fruits. 

Palate: Candyfloss, creamy honey and buttery pastry.

Finish: Satisfyingly long with spices that go on and on.

Cara Laing, Director of Marketing in her family business, said: “The original Timorous Beastie may look cute and unassuming, but the spirit inside is a seriously credible Highland Malt, offered at high alcohol strength and without colouring or chill-filtration. Our new limited edition “Meet the Beast” is designed to unleash Timorous Beastie’s wild side in line with a repositioning for the core brand, which seeks to enthuse and excite consumers via premium, credible messaging with a feisty edge. It’s true what they say – beware of the quiet ones!”

If you’d like to bag a bottle of Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast then it has a retail price of around £50 and will be available from May 2021, limited to just 3,600 bottles.
