It’s traditional to raise a glass of Scotland’s national drink on Burns Nights, even if we’ll be forced to eat and drink in lockdown this year.
We asked Scotsman readers to recommend their favourite dram to celebrate what is one of the country’s biggest nights and dozens of you responded.
Here are a few of your top tipples.
1. Lagavulin 12 Year Old
Dave Calhoun was one of several readers who recommended spashing out on a bottle of Lagavulin 12 Year Old for around £125: "I splurged and had a Lagavulin 12 Year Old once. Oh my goodness. Just enough peat, just a hint of caramel, and smoke for days."
2. The Famous Grouse
Stewart Syme recommended one of Scotland's most famous brands, which brings back memories of his grandfather: "As my late grandfather, who enjoyed a nip of the Famous Grouse through choice, would say: 'There are no bad whiskies, just some are better than others.'." It's available for a wallet-friendly £18.
3. Arran Robert Burns Single Malt
Given that it's Burns Night, it's perhaps no surprise that several people, including Jos Rehli praised this choice, available for around £30: "Robert Burns Single Malt, no question."
4. Glenfiddich Havana Reserve
Hamish Ross recommends Glenfiddich Havana Reserve, explaining: "It was rated the best by the late Iain Banks in his great book 'Raw Spirit' but sadly it is no longer made. I have one bottle secreted away." You'll have to have deep pockets though - a bottle will set you back around £400 at auction.
