Celtic fans are know for their consumption of a beverage named "Buckfast", more commonly known as "Buckie" despite having no connection with the North East of Scotland fishing port of the same name.
However, this beverage has no similarity to whisky whatsoever and is drunk purely for effect.
"Old Inverness" may be partaken by the older generation of Celtic supporters and is seen as quite a sophisticated whisky by those of that persuasion.
I have no personal experience with Buckfast but, coincidentally, first heard about it last week as I was reading a Craig Ferguson book. Think I'll stay away from that one.
We don't have Old Inverness here so I won't be able to go for that bit of authenticity. I'll likely have a few pints of a local IPA at the match and then partake of a few drams after; perhaps the combination will have the same results as Buckie but I don't intend to do a comparison. I'll stay away from anything "Royal".
Thanks for the tips-
On a more serious note, I think its fair to say that the average Scotsman doesn't do our national drink justice and many have a preference for white spirits or lagers/beers, although this forum does a tremendous job trying to persuade us that once sampled there is a whole new world of discovery out there awaiting the whisky drinker.
I believe that Macallan and Glenmorangie would be two of the most popular malt whiskies consumed by Scots, whether they be from the blue or the green side of the divide.
Why not just experiment and see what your taste buds tell you.
Most of all, enjoy.

Let's start with seeing how they do Saturday morning (well, morning on the U.S. west coast that is) against England.
