Douglas Laing & Co has announced a new limited edition bottling of its Timorous Beastie Highland malt.

Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old is a rare release of only 1,600 bottles at 46.8% alcohol strength, without colouring or chill-filtration. Having been matured predominantly in ex-Bourbon barrels, the whisky carries a buttery, honey style alongside marmalade, ginger and damp oak. Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old will be available via specialist spirits retailers at an expected retail price of £150.

Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old joins the special release 18 Years Old which is also bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and available via specialist spirits retailers at a retail price of circa £90.

Cara Laing, director of whisky at Douglas Laing & Co, said: “Timorous Beastie 25 Years Old is a beautifully balanced marriage of single malts distilled in the Scottish Highlands. It’s a perfect illustration as to how rich Highland malts mellow as they mature whilst developing a wonderful complexity. This expression carries the trademark Timorous Beastie vanilla and honey style - as a result of being matured predominantly in ex-Bourbon casks - as well as an orange tang and sweet spiciness. Perfect for Autumn evenings!”
