About Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Established in 1948, Douglas Laing & Co is an Independent Scotch bottler. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the company produces a number of brands including their Remarkable Regional Malts range, featuring expressions like The Epicurean, Scallywag, Rock Oyster and Big Peat, and Timorous Beastie, among several others. The family-owned business specializes in artisan, Small Batch, and Single Cask bottlings.
The original Timorous Beastie is referenced in Scotsman Robert Burns’ famous poem “To a Mouse.” Named after the timid mouse, this Timorous Beastie is anything but. The embodiment of the Highland single malt, this whisky is a marriage of the region's finest Malts including Dalmore, Glengoyne, and Glen Garioch. Non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46.8% abv, this whisky is a viscose spirit, rich in character, with an incredible mouth-feel.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
