Timorous Beasty 10 Year Old released

A new version of the blended malt joins the range of Douglas Laing's Regional Malts series

There is news from independent bottler Douglas Laing: Timorous Beasty 10 Year Old was launched in the UK and will soon reach other international markets, too.

The blended malt Timorous Beasty represents the Highlands in the series “Regional Malts”. Whiskies from distilleries as Blair Athol, Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne make up the fruity, spicy character with its sweet and malty notes. Just like the classic Timorous Beasty without age statement or the limited Timorous Beasty 18 Year Old this 10 years old small batch release was bottled with 46.8 % ABV, without coloring and chill filtration.

Timorous Beasty is dedicated to the little mouse of the famous poem “To a mouse”, written by Scottish national poet Robert Burns. The launch of this new release therefor was timed very well: Every year Burn’s birthday on 25 January is celebrated worldwide with the traditional Burns Supper and whisky is of course an important part of the menu. What would be more perfect than having a Timorous Beasty in the glass while declaiming the mouse-poem?
