    February 5, 2013

  • warm-reekin or warm-reeking is a Scots word used in the poem 'Address to the Haggis' by Robert Burns to convey the sense of anticipation created by food steaming as it is newly taken from the oven or pot. It is different from use of the separate terms warm and reekin or reeking, which could be used to convey a more negative assessment.
