MINE host of the Haymarket has this week produced a dozen of Kean for the entertainment of his customers ; which he offers on alternate nights with the saccharine stuff that, under the name of Menroe, is put off on the public as pure Highland whisky : moreover, he has broached his last keg of Bads/one's entire, the rest being bespoken for the Ame- rican market. The sample of Kean that we tasted—we cannot say enjoyed—on Monday night, is " same as per last:' having been bottled daring the voyage, it was " up," and in prime order ; the cork flew out with the usual explosion, and the effervescence continued to the last : the guests were a little intoxicated, and called for more, which they were promised the next KEAN night.
