Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie Blended Malt. Image courtesy Douglas Laing & Co.The name for this Highland Blended Malt comes from one of the classic Robert Burns poems, however, the whisky is anything but timorous. The nose is intense and aromatic with malt, heather, dried fruits, baked apples, and berry cobbler. The taste is bold, fruity, and intense with green apples, apricot, dried figs and oranges, touches of cinnamon and clove, and a hint of wet sand. The finish is long with a slightly dry mouthfeel and notes of cinnamon candy and peppermint. Excellent! (November, 2014)
