Whisky reviews for Timorous Beastie DL

8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 81.54 points.

  1. Stefan_Hartl scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior


    Young but actually quite nice. Only the price does not quite match what is on offer.
    • Nose
      Immediately lemon and lime. In addition honey, cereals and a little apple and pear.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly oily and honey-sweet. Then a strong start with a lot of pepper. Spices and citrus fruits like peaches that are not yet fully ripe.
    • Finish
      Citrus fruits and spices here too. Gets very dry very quickly. A pleasant peppermint note remains.

  4. Thermidor scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Beastie may have the best label in the business, but it's nary more than a middle of the road blend.
    • Nose
      Lager beer and apple juice. Some yeast and pears. Feels like the average age is very young.
    • Taste
      Sweet apple juice and maltiness, and a nice touch of Highland peat. Some whispers of milk chocolate in the back. With a drop of water I get more milk chocolate and cereal sweetness. Hold it on your tongue a while and you'll notice the youth well.
    • Finish
      Barely any, leaves too quickly. With water I get some licorice.

  5. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This is a pretty good blended malt that is on par with many single malts. Also equipped with plenty of power. You can buy and drink with a clear conscience.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Hay, overripe pears, honey, fine roasted aromas, a hint of smoke, salt, caramel
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet, honey, spices, pear, hay, milk chocolate, quite strong
    • Finish
      82 82
      short, medium-length finish, leaves a creamy mouthfeel, malt, bitterness, pepper, chocolate, alcohol a tad too aggressive.
