Mr Robert Burns and I

The new Robert Burns Single Malt is a special one. Robert Burns is a very historic person….. a Scottish poet and lyricist.

He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. Robert Burns is by name best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, but much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect. Love that!


O my Luve’s like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June; O my Luve’s like the melodie That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in luve am I: And I will luve thee still, my dear, Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, And the rocks melt wi’ the sun: I will luve thee still, my dear, While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee well, my only Luve And fare thee well, a while! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.


The poem you just been reading is called ” A  Red, Red Rose “ .. I’ve been reading some of his writing, and just loved this one. I thought, it was a nice start of this review.

Mr Robert Burns and I met each other, through Arran Whisky. One day he came by post. He looked up, when I openend the box ..  “nose me and taste me” he said Looking at the pictures of Robert Burns, I see some blushy cheeks and a pointy nose.

He looks very peaceful, on his portret. I think I might be very comfortable, if I lived in his time. Wearing a nice dress, walking next to him and just talk and having quiet moments….

I’m very happy, that Arran Whisky has introduced me to him. Robert Burns is a very interesting man. Who agrees? Thumbs up! And Thank you Arran Whisky for this whisky!

After nosing this golden liquid, it reminded me of a Candy store, with sweets and toffee. And sweet like a rose. This is a perfect whisky to start a summer. A summer of nostalgic pathways to follow. Combined with a park, a river, trees, lovely people, violin and Robert Burns.

  • Nose: Sweet, a bit creamy, some toffee and fresh fruit, a nostalgic sweetshop

I give this whisky an 8 out of 10.
