Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old (Douglas Laing) Review

Timorous Beastie 10 Year Old (Douglas Laing) The standard Timorous Beastie is a seriously drinkable dram, so this 10 year Old expression is one that I was really excited to see.

This is seriously tasty, light and “timorous” but spend time with it and it opens up and the complexity shines. This is not a power punch of a dram but it’s one that will reward your efforts.

Pick one up from your local whisky specialist such as Master of Malt.

Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample.
