Free the haggis 


America to be asked to allow haggis imports

Has anybody here eaten it?

My ancestors were Scottish quarrymen, but I've never tried the national dish. The whiskey I have sampled.

Increased consumption of Haggis will require increased imports of Scotch to get it down.  It's a win-win.

Great Point Big Fella 


but we don't need to increase Haggis importation to drink more Scotch, nor do we need a lousy excuse like chewing sheep lung, to drink more Scotch.  We could just put on our kilts, grab some guns, grab some Scotch, start a big fire and dance to "Its A Long Way To The Top If You Want To Rock and Roll" by the great bagpipe band AC/DC, and we'd soon forget we forgot the haggis!!

Wait, didn't we throw that party at the Chi in 1985?  I think Chris Webber forgot his kilt.

our state of grace is gone.

I survived haggis! I spent one summer at the University of St. Andrews. I became acquainted with haggis, as well as the Old course. I'll take the Old Course.

Laphroiag.  Glenfiddich.  Jura.  Balvenie.  Johnnie Walker Black.  Kingdom.  Glenlivet.  Ben Nevis.  Oban.  Lagavulin. Grant's.   Talisker.  Speyside.  Glenmorangie.  James King.

Scotch may have been created specifically to make Haggis edible.

Several familiar names. Glenmorangie is a long time favorite.  I keep a bottle of 25 year old McCallans tucked away for special occasions.  Comes out once a year when Young Dawg comes home for Christmas.

Unfortunately , my tastes outpace my wallet. confused

You just made me sad 


A 1995 transit strike in Great Britain prevented me from reaching the Orkney Islands and Highland Park. My adventure on the Whiskey Trail was limited to Glenfiddich.

Oh yeah, wife and I walked the Great Glen way from Ft. William to Inverness then went north to Torridon and Ullapool to climb some Munros when we were 64.  Met a Limey from Kent on a Munro "trail" and we became friends.  I shared my love of island malts with him and he told me to try the Highland Park stuff.  Excellent whisky, the 18 is as far up the ladder as I've tried.  Not as gnarly as the Laphroig, Caol Ila and others from that end of the Peat scale, just a perfectly balanced Island Malt.  wink

Well, I lean toward MD 20-20 and Thunderbird when I know you will be there. ;)
