Burns Night - Timorous Beastie

January 25 is the birthday of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns. Each year we celebrate Burns Night with whisky, poems, bagpipe music and (because I don’t have any haggis, neeps and tatties myself tonight) a YouTube video of the traditional ‘Address to a haggis’. If you've never seen this before, search for some more on YouTube. They are very entertaining. 

A beautiful whisky to celebrate this day is Timorous Beastie, one of the Remarkable Malts from Douglas Laing. Why? Because this whisky is named after a mouse which appears in Robert Burns’ poem “To a mouse”. 

This whisky is a blend of Highland whisky from Dalmore, Glen Garioch, Glengoyne and others, matured in ex-Bourbon barrels for a big, sweet and spicy flavour profile. We raise our glass to a man who contributed a great lot to Scottish culture.

P.S. This is also a great whisky for an Old Fashioned. Just add sugar, bitters and an orange peel.

SlĂ inte mhath.
