    Scottish Pronounciations - Online Audio Resource

    I saw this on the Malt Maniacs FB page posted by Olivier Oscari:

    http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/jhb/whisky/pronounc.html

    Pretty good stuff for those of us not native to Scotland.

    I feel like they should have made it a quiz. I failed miserably and don't care. At the least i'll sound slightly less confused next visit to the local shops.

    My family is Scottish as well, in fact, I'm related to the writer Sir Walter Scott somehow, I've been told.

    That probably explains my "thriftiness" too.
