A single malt whisky-based Bobby Burns, and all the more "excellent" for it.
We were introduced to the Mr. Burns by Richard Elgar, a fellow Discerning Drinker. Mr Charles Montgomery Burns is a character in The Simpsons television series, who is the wealthy owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant so Homer Simpson's boss. Mr Burns is depicted as being greedy, wicked, and villainous, and the character is famous for his catchphrase expression, "Excellent", muttered slowly in a sinister voice while steepling his fingers.
