Latest Timorous Beastie whisky unveiled

Scotch whisky firm Douglas Laing & Co has announced a new limited-edition bottling of its Timorous Beastie Highland malt.

Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old is limited to just 1,600 bottles and has an ABV of 46.8%. It has matured predominently in ex-Bourbon casks and is produced without colouring or chill-filtration.

Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old will be available via specialist spirits retailers at a RRP of £150. The new limited-edition joins the special release 18 Years Old which is also bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and available via spirits retailers at a retail price of £90.

Cara Laing, director of whisky at Douglas Laing & Co, says: “Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old is a beautifully balanced marriage of single malts distilled in the Scottish Highlands. It’s a perfect illustration as to how rich Highland malts mellow as they mature whilst developing a wonderful complexity. This expression carries the trademark Timorous Beastie vanilla and honey style — as a result of being matured predominantly in ex-Bourbon casks — as well as an orange tang and sweet spiciness. Perfect for Autumn evenings!”
