TIMAH – the first Malaysian-made award-winning whiskey – consists of a carefully crafted blend of two aged peated malts and a neutral spirit of Malaysian origin which helped it to stand out in international spirits competitions.
These components are blended by the master blender, resulting in the distinctive taste of TIMAH. As its name indicates, TIMAH is a Double Peated Whiskey. Peat is a natural, plant-based fuel source that is burned to provide the heat to dry malted barley, giving the resulting whiskey its characteristic smokey flavor and aroma.
On the nose, TIMAH is a light, fruity whiskey that is a harmonious mix of primarily smoke, with a hint of a floral bouquet. It moves through a smokey palate before settling into a sweet, light oak finish.
TIMAH has been gaining success since it was formed as the whiskey won silver medals in both the International Spirits Challenge 2020 (ISC) and the Annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 (SFWSC). In ISC, TIMAH competed against over 70 countries and in SFWSC, it was marked by the judges as “an outstanding spirit that displays refinement, finesse and complexity”.
In 2021, TIMAH scored 92 points at the International Wine and Spirit Competition and also won gold for the ‘Best Malaysian Whiskey’ award at the International Whiskey Competition 2021.
The International Whiskey Competition is the world’s most-followed whiskey competition, reaching communities on various social media channels. Malaysian Whiskey hadn’t been a category in competitions prior and this is the first time it was included.
“I’m proud and thankful to share that TIMAH our award-winning signature whiskey, and our other brands have been widely accepted and desired by both local and international markets. The continuous support of our consumers and partners means the world to us, and I look forward to continuing to receive endless support from each and every one of you,” said Gilbert Yeo, Director of Winepak Corporation Malaysia.
