Following on from the mighty "Big Peat" of Islay and the cheeky yet sweet wee "Scallywag" of Speyside, the "Timorous Beastie" is the new Highland cousin on the block.
Timorous Beastie is overidingly sweet initially on the nose, then warms to floral, light barley and spicy honeyed tones. The palate opens in a spicy style, now mellow, sugary and raisin fudge in style.
This is the perfect dram to celebrate Scotland's most famous son on the night of January 25th; Burns Night! (But it's very good all year round too...)
