Three Drams To Have With Your Haggis This Burns Night! - Old and Rare Whisky

Three Drams To Have With Your Haggis This Burns Night!

There’s no word of a lie that he is a true legend in all his might and on the 25th January we celebrate his legacy once again. Robert Burns (also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of AyrshirePloughman Poet and various other names) was a famous Scots poet who died way before his time at the very young age of 37. His work included masterpieces such as "A Red, Red Rose", "A Man's a Man for A' That", "To a Louse", "To a Mouse", "The Battle of Sherramuir", "Tam o' Shanter" and "Ae Fond Kiss” to name a few.

Traditionally in Scotland on the night of January 25th, most people (not all, contrary to belief!) Will have their evening meal as Haggis, Neeps and Tatties - a delicious dish of Haggis, turnips/swedes and potatoes (however you have them is up to you!) With a glass of Irn Bru, people will be delighted at this dish however we here at Old & Rare Whisky, we prefer something a little bit stronger with our supper!

Without further ado, we have three drams which will go perfectly with your Burns Night supper.

1. Lagavulin 16 Year Old White Horse Distillers Bottling 1 Litre - £398.00

An old 1-litre bottling of the much loved Lagavulin 16 from White Horse Distillers from early 1990s. Highly collectable and become harder and harder to find. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.

2. Ballentine’s 21 Year Old Ceramic Decanter - £175.00

Housed in an opulent blue ceramic decanter, Ballentine's Ceramic Decanter is a 21-year-old Scotch whisky with a deliciously layered palate. This blend is floral on the nose and bottled at 43% for a smooth and powerful finish. This is one to savour on special occasions.  

Macallan 30 Year Old Sherry Oak£4,998.00

Who says you need to have food anyway? You could always have a liquid dinner! The highly sought after 30 Year Old Sherry Oak from Macallan. Impossible to find! A few drams of this and you could possibly be the next Rabbie Burns!

Wherever you are or how you’re celebrating, we wish you a Happy Rabbie Burns Day and we raise our glasses to you!
