Burns' Night

What a great country we live in no

sooner are Our New Year revelries Over, when we get another excuse for boozy excess Burns Night is almost unthinkable Without a fair quantity of alcohol, and is certainly in keeping

j With the spirit of the great man It’s not a time for subtlety on the drinks front - big, beefy Wines are reguued to

accompany the haggis.

celebrations, but with a name like that it's hard to ignore. This is archetypal Aussie Shiraz With wads of strawberries and white pepper on the nose. Much of the pepper is down to the substantial alcohol content; at 145% this carries With it a fair alcoholic sting that \NIH serve as a worthy match to the haggis. It is surprisingly soft on the palate With very few tannins eVident so it won't stain your teeth. Track this down in magnum form if you can for double the fun.

Year OldtHighland l """““““"' £22.99) Burns' Night is not complete Without a dram or two. This is a limited edition malt that has been aged in specially chosen casks which serve to heighten the sweet Glenmorangie house style. Both on the nose and on the palate there are layers of honey, butterscotch and vanilla, but without being overly moreish. It is, however, dangerously drinkable and has all the ingredients for a memorable night. (Gordon Haggarty)
