    Timorous Beastie

    The Ultimate Distillation of the Highlands

    46.8% ABV · Sweet and Vanilla'd

    The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns’ famous Scots poem “To a Mouse” was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing our national bard’s wit, ours is most certainly not for the fainthearted! Inside there’s a medley of vanilla, malted barley, meringue, honey and citrus flavours just bursting to be unleashed…

    Nose Overridingly sweet initially, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones
    Palate Opens in a spicy style with fructiferous notes of raisin and a sugary, vanilla character
    Finish Subtle yet sweet with a real oaky flavour, hints of milky cereals and late meringue
  • A Hearty Highland Malt

    Hear it Roar!

    Timorous Beastie captures the true essence of The Highlands in a marriage of the region's finest Single Malts, including those distilled at amongst others Blair Athol, Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch Distilleries. A big and bold Blended 100% Malt matured in Bourbon casks for a sweetly vanilla’d, sugary style.

  • Unleash the Beast

    Don't be fooled by the name.

    Timorous by name but not by nature, our Timorous Beastie is proudly bottled at the strength of 46.8% and offered to you without colouring or chill-filtration, resulting a big, full-bodied and mouth-coating character that is truly moreish…

  • Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old

    A Delicious Decade

    Produced in particularly small batches, Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old is a beautifully aged partner to the classic Timorous Beastie bottling. Savour a nose that is so very sweet - think sugar and syrup added to spiced autumnal fruit. The palate is equally dulcet, with honey, the gentlest spices and a distinct cereal character, an ode to its Bourbon cask maturation.
