ROBERT Burns is widely regarded as Scotland’s national poet, so revered for his way with words that a day of celebration is held in his honour every year in January.
In the Bard’s own words a quote:
‘Inspiring bold John Barleycorn [whisky]!
What dangers thou canst make us scorn!
Wi’ tippeny [tuppenny ale], we fear nae evil;
Wi’ usquabae [whisky], we’ll face the devil!’
Thoughts on whiskey: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
Here’s tae the heath, the hill and the heather,
The bonnet, the plaid, the kilt and the feather.
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
