The king o' drinks as I conceive it, Talisker, Isla or Glenlivet - Robert Louis Stevenson, The Scotsman's Return From Abroad

At last, across the weary faem,
Frae far, outlandish pairts I came.
On ilka side o' me I fand
Fresh tokens o' my native land.
Wi' whatna joy I hailed them a' -
The hilltaps standin' raw by raw,
The public house, the Hielan' birks,
And a' the bonny U.P. kirks!
But maistly thee, the bluid o' Scots,
Frae Maidenkirk to John o' Grots,
The king o' drinks, as I conceive it,
Talisker, Isla, or Glenlivet!

– Robert Louis Stevenson , The Scotsman’s Return From Abroad
