Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast Cask StrengthDouglas Laing have unveiled a new limited release cask strength expression of their Highland blended malt whisky Timorous Beastie.

Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast has been 100% matured in ex-American Bourbon barrels and has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 54.9% ABV which should amplify the flavour experience for fans of this sleekit, cowrin, Timorous Highland dram.

Presented in a black bottle with red capsule and premium gift tube, the striking livery features the brand’s trademark mouse character and monochromatic colourways, complemented by flashes of bold red. With tasting notes including "complex oak", "buttery pastry" and "rich spices", the team behind Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast say it is "bound to appeal to an adventurous whisky drinker with an appetite for big flavours".

Cara Laing, Director of Marketing in her family owned and run whisky 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!"

Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast has a RRP of £50 and is a limited release of 3,600  bottles worldwide and will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
