Douglas Laing & Co is set to release a Highland “vatted” malt in the UK. Timorous Beastie takes its name from the poem 'To a Mouse' by Robert Burns.

The iteration is a blend of whiskies from the Highlands area of Scotland, and joins Big Peat (comprising whiskies from Islay) and Scallywag (liquid from Speyside) in Douglas Laing's range of regional malts.

One year ago, the company launched a single cask range under the Old Particular brand name.

Established in 1948, leading independent Scotch Whisky specialist, Douglas Laing & Co today announce the release of their brand new Highland “Vatted” Malt – Timorous Beastie.

Douglas Laing’s Timorous Beastie is a Small Batch bottling created using only the finest Highland Malts including – amongst others – Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch. 

Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength, without colouring and not chill-filtered, this specialist Small Batch bottling displays a charming sweet, heather honey and Highland character.

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, this Highland Malt is most certainly not for the fainthearted!

Says Douglas Laing’s Managing Director (and Master Blender) Fred Laing: “What we have within the heart of our Timorous Beastie Vatted Malt is a selection of great Highland Malts on their own. Together they combine brilliantly – with some punchy packaging – to complete a triumphant trio of regional Malts which now covers Islay with Big Peat, Speyside with Scallywag and the Highlands with Timorous Beastie.” 

Douglas Laing’s Timorous Beastie will be available from specialist Whisky retailers from September 2014.
