It’s Burns Night on Monday and we hope you’re honouring him in true Scottish style – by celebrating for the whole weekend!
Even though we can’t go out and celebrate in the usual fashion with the traditional ceilidh, don our clan tartan, we (as in Drinkly) would like to bring a little bit of the best Scottish whisky has to offer, right to your home so you can raise a toast to the legendary poet that is Robert Burns.
Let’s start with the Aberfeldy 12-year-old single malt. The Aberfeldy Distillery began production in 1898 and has been a hugely loved whisky around the world ever since. Its 12-year-old, single malt that we offer is scented with spices and honeyed plump fruits. Providing delicious flavours on syrupy, vanilla and fudge, ending with a whisper of smoke, it’s perfect for those who enjoy the sweeter things in life.
Next up, from the Island of Islay, is the flavoursome Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair; pronounced ‘stew-rahdur’, which means ‘helmsman’ in Scots Gaelic. Bunnahabhain came to us in 1883 on the shores of the Sound of Islay, yet its origins can be traced back four years earlier to 1879. The Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair offers something truly unique; with its salty yet creamy taste, this whisky creates notes of dried fruit with hints of vanilla, nuts and a touch of spice. This whisky is certainly one to be enjoyed slowly by the fire.
And finally, The Dalmore 12-year-old. As the Master Distiller, Richard Paterson noted, “with its intricate aromas and flavours, The Dalmore 12 is recognised as a whisky with character far beyond its age.” Emitting aromas of citrus fruits, chocolate and aromatic spices, The Dalmore provides an initial taste of warm Seville oranges, dried fruits and hints of vanilla pod, finishing with an intense taste of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Ideal for a post-dinner tipple.
We hope you commemorate our great writer this weekend, and we really hope you do it with Drinkly. But whatever you decide, stay safe and have a lovely time.
