Timorous Beastie 18 Year Old (Douglas Laing) Review

Timorous Beastie 18 Year Old (Douglas Laing) Timorous Beastie 21 and 40 were both outstanding, this 18 year old really was one i wanted to try.

Filled with malty goodness this dram is one of my ultimate favourites, vanilla sugar sweetness and a huge dose of moreishness, this is one you really want to track down and trap.

This seems to have sold out everywhere, but keep trying and you might find one.

Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


A big hit of malt, with malt barley, malt loaf and digestive biscuit all featuring, then light grassy notes before tinned golden syrup, hints of sweet haribo fruitiness also, vanilla sugar


Vanilla sugar sweetness, candied oranges and travel sweets, haribo fruitiness again, tarte apple skins, more sugar less spice with water


A light spice prickle on the tongue but overlasting sweetness
