A limited-edition bottling of Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled up at a bolstered 54.9% ABV. Dubbed Meet the Beast, this expression certainly does dial up the intensity a few notches, with a big burst of vibrant fruit and oak notes at its core, supported by vanilla, fresh pastry, and a host of spices. A brilliant Highland blended malt – though the red eyes of the beastie on the label look as if it's staring into your soul a little bit.
