Douglas Laing & Co have unleashed Timorous Beastie “Meet the Beast.” The new whisky is a limited edition partner to their Highland Malt brand.
Offered at a natural cask strength of 54.9% ABV and matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels, the spirit is said to be a “massive amplification” of the original. On the nose, expect a burst of sweet vanilla, complex oak and orchard fruits. The palate delivers notes of candyfloss, creamy honey and buttery pastry, running to a long finish filled with spices.
Timorous Beastie Meet the Beast comes in a black bottle with red capsule and premium gift tube, the livery features the brand’s trademark mouse character and monochromatic colorways, complemented by flashes of red.
“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,” said Cara Laing, Director of Marketing in her family business. “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 is expected to retail at £50 and will be available from selected specialist retailers globally beginning this month. Only 3,600 bottles are available.
