Timorous Beastie

Advent Calendar 2020 9/24

Reviewed by victor

Tasting 24 samples totally blind in December 2020, you can find more here. All notes except the very last few sentences are written before reveal. Disclaimer: These are all very small drams, around 1.5 cl each, so doing a proper tasting is challenging. I'll do my best!

0.2 (Pale straw)


Warm spices, peppery, honey, alcoholic burn, pears. Young?


White wine, more spice, toffee, vanilla


Tropical fruits, spice (see the pattern here?). Medium length.

Interesting, but a bit too heavy on the spice. It's probably young. Guess: 50%, some sherry, about 8 years old. Reveal: Aha! The NAS variant of Timorous Beastie. I've tried a couple of others, this was quite different from those. Check out my other advent tastings!
