5 Arbitrarily Chosen Bottles of Scotch for Burns Night

I love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch. – Ron Burgundy

Burns Night is a celebration of a scotch poet. More importantly, it’s an excuse to drink scotch, not that you really need one. Because I know you don’t really care about a Burns Supper or any of the other traditional rigamarole, here’s a random list of scotches you should drink. It’s comprised entirely of brands who sent me pitches for Burns Night.

  • Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition, $30: It’s damn good and 100-proof, which means it’ll get the job done.
  • Oban Little Bay, $80: Small stills make small batches which marry in small casks.
  • Macallan Sherry Oak 18 Years Old, $230: It’s the best. Literally. No description needed.
  • Glenrothes Vintage 1995, $100: Remember all the awesome stuff from the 90s? This is like that, but intoxicating.
  • Balblair 2002 Highland Malt, $60: Balblair makes great whiskey, and this is entry level so you can afford it.

Now here’s Nick Offerman singing about how much he loves whisky.
