Whisky and St Andrew's Day :: Wednesday 30th November, 2016 :: Which whisky should I have on this Scottish special day?

Whisky and St Andrew's Day :: 30th November, 2016 :: Which whisky should I have on this special day?

St Andrews Day :: Wednesday 30th November, 2016

St Andrew's Day is an important day to all Scottish people home and abroad, and we should celebrate this day the same as Robert Burn’s Day where every January thousands of Scottish people toast the Bard. St Andrew's Day should be celebrated with a good whisky, bagpipes and traditional Scottish food.

St Andrew's Day falls on Wednesday 30 November, 2016 and sometimes you feel it is celebrated more out with Scotland than within its Scottish "Borders".

There are many whiskies that we all enjoy, but what whisky is right for you on Scotland's special day? Some people just like having the traditional whiskies like Bells or Famous Grouse as they toast Scotland’s patron saint which are both excellent, but I always feel a particular dram should be consumed on St Andrew's Day. Below is a list of drams for St Andrew's Day that could make your day even more special.

Special whisky for St Andrew's Day 2016

The Glenlivet Nàdurra is the perfect way to celebrate ‘2013 The Year Of Natural Scotland.’ It’s inspiration comes from the wild and remote location of the Livet Valley.

Available from Master of Malt for for £40.45. To buy this Glenlivet whisky click here.

Devil's Punch Bowl III is another excellent choice with its lovely flavours throughout. As tasting this malt goes you will be able to sense of vanilla and cinnamon, followed by wine-like sweetness and developing floral hints. Hints of pepper and orange peel. So many of the Arran malts are special and a number of them would be great for this day. To buy the Devil's Punch Bowl III online click here. Cost price £199.95.
