Burns Night is coming up on 25th January and the Tesco whisky buyer has put together a list of fantastic whiskies to help you celebrate the world famous poet.
Well Xmas was a bit of a bust really, and Hogmanay is ruined, but so far there seems no reason why the Bard’s night might not actually be a slice of much-needed normalcy at least in England. Scotland may yet be another matter.
Whisky, Scotch Whisky, is of course the only dram to be drunk and there is such a choice. Tesco has it all on its shelves but afore ye go (shopping) take a wee moment to decide what you’ll be drinking.
