If you’re having a Burns Night celebration (or just toasting Rabbie in your living room) make sure you do it in style. We’ve sampled Scotch whiskies, distilled with passion across the county.
From the Royals’ (surprisingly affordable) dram of choice Johnnie Walker Black Label 12-Year-Old to the rather special Highland Park 25-Year-Old, there’s a tipple for every budget on our list.

Dry and Peaty Glen Grant 10-Year-Old is as good as you’ll get for under £30. For a bottle that will look as good on your haggis, neeps and tatties-laden table as it tastes, we like the Balblair 2003.
