How would you say "The black pudding in Stornoway is brilliant"?

Oh, yes, it's arguably the best there is. It's pretty peppery, but it has a crumblier, lighter texture than some of its competitors. Glè bhlasta. :)

It is the best black pudding I've ever tasted.

Stornoway has the world's best, in fact

My fishmonger, who's from Fife, agrees it's top-notch, and, like me, enjoys it with scallops. However, he says he prefers that made by Grants, formerly of Dornoch, now of Grantown-on-Spey, where the factory is, though there's still a shop in Dornoch, as well as in Grantown. I've not tasted it, but if I come across it any time, I'll certainly give it a go. :)
