Whisky Focus - Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old Special Edition Review

Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old Special Edition

3rd January 2018
Douglas Laing release Timorous Beastie 10 year old Highland blended malt expression.

Timorous Beastie 10 Year OldThe first new whisky to first foot my mail box in 2018 is a new whisky from the Glasgow based family run whisky company Douglas Laing, they have just announced the release of Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old Limited Edition Highland Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.

Perhaps it is appropriate that this new whisky which takes it name from the mouse in Scots poet Robert Burns famous poem "To a Mouse" is the first new whisky announcement of the year with Robert Burns "Auld Lang Syne" which is sung worldwide to usher in the New Year still ringing in our ears and with Burns Night celebrations only a few weeks away on January 25th.

The new 10 Year Old isn't the first limited edition aged bottling to be released in the Timorous Beastie range, it follows the limited edition Timorous Beastie 18 Year Old which was released in May last year, and the premium 40 and 21 year old expressions which were released back in 2016.

Douglas Laing tell me that the new Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old bottling is a marriage of single malts exclusively from the Highland region, bottled at 46.8% and as we have come to expect from the Douglas Laing Remarkable Malts range it is without colouring or chill-filtration.

You will find the new Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old which has a rather palatable RRP of 34.99 available from specialist online whisky shops such as  The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt

Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old Review

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Immediately sugary sweet, bursting with warm syrup over sponge and ripe, juicy nectarines.

Taste: Creamy honey, warm buttered toast, gentle spice and a distinct cereal character.

Finish: A deliciously full finish of honeycomb, zesty orange and soft fruits.
