Timorous Beastie 10 Year
Timorous Beastie // Highlands, Scotland
Launched in January 2018, this blended malt from Douglas Laing is aged for 10 years. The Timorous Beastie line from the independent producer is a blended malt brand which uses single malts from the Highlands in its makeup. As is the case with all of their whiskies, this has no color added and is non-chillfiltered. The bottle and outer tube packaging are meant to reflect the traditional 10 year anniversary metal: aluminium. Bottled at 46.8% ABV.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The nose opens up on sweet vanilla and ripe, mushy bananas. Some soft spices too, accompanied by maple syrup and fudge. This is definitely on the sweeter side of the spectrum, a trend that continues on the palate, although spices are a bit more present here. The finish has a feint bitterness and finally some sweet fruits. Good value for money, this."
