Halò Single Malt Mates,
Och, Nolliag (Christmas) is upon us…
So as is my custom, I will wish you all a happy holiday season in Scots Gaelic!
MO CHAIRDEAN CHOIR! MY DEAR FRIENDS!
Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhma mhath ur! •
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
(Let us drink a toast; literally, Let us drink [to] health)
In Scot’s English:
May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye’ll ivver see.
May the moose ne’er leave yer girnal wi a tear-drap in its ee.
May ye aye keep hail an hertie till ye’r auld eneuch tae dee.
May ye aye juist be sae happie as A wish ye aye tae be.
May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your pantry with a teardrop in its eye
May you always stay whole and hearty until you are old enough to die..
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be..¬¬¬
“Whisky, drink divine!
Why should drivelers bore us
With the praise of wine
While we’ve thee before us?”
AND NOW THE SHAMELESS PLUG:
MY DEAR SINGLE MALT MATES, I WOULD LIKE, IN THE NEW YEAR, TO SHARE SOME EXOTIC FOOD AND WHISKY PAIRINGS WITH YOU.. HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO DO THAT, I MUST PURCHASE REALLY EXPENSIVE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY. SO IF YOU WOULD BE SO KIND AS TO HIT THE PAYPAL BUTTON ON SITE AND DONATE A WEE BIT, IT WOULD BE A GREAT NOLLAIG PRESENT FOR ME INDEED!
MORAN TAING MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE
I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating and drinking. If you’re going to lie, lie for a friend. If you’re going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. And if you’re going to drink, drink with me.
A h-uile la sona dhuibh‘s gun la idir dona dhuibh!
May all your days be happy ones.
Slàinte mhòr agus a h-uile beannachd duibh.
Great health and every good blessing to you
Your Scotch Spirit Master
