    Auld Reekie, das ist der Spitzname von Edinburgh und bedeutet "alte Verrauchte". So sollen die Einheimischen ihre Stadt genannt haben, als die Kamine noch mit ihrem Qual Smog und Nebel über die Stadt legten.Edinburgh has long been associated with smoke, whisky and royalty. It is reported that in 1777 there were no fewer than 400 illicit distilleries in Edinburgh. These easily went undetected in the thick smoke that filled Edinburgh. The smoke was such an issue in Edinburgh that the capital affectionately became known as “Auld Reekie”. In more modern times Edinburgh has lost its reputation as being the smoky capital of Scotland with the island of Islay now more synonymous in whisky circles with smoke than Edinburgh.
