Oh, and just round off the food analogy here... You can still get some killer fish'n'chips in the UK (I hear, I don't eat white fish myself) and Steak and Ale Pie are on the menues in most pubs these days... That said, you eat well in the UK these days - both in the country and cities.
I could start listing places here, but this is a whisky blog, not a food blog... so I'll skip to the whisky... though if you as nice by mail, I might recommend a few places to you ;-)

Colour is mahogany
Slight sulphury hint that wears off after a while, dried fruits, oily with a mashy an earthy mushroom note, grandmother's cigars and a hint of orange
Again a very thick texture and that hint of sulphur adding to the heavier style of this Arran, cinnamon, drying oak spices, roast beef meatiness, pear in madeira and caramel
An Arran expression on the heavy side, this one... missing a bit of balance between the things it has to offer - still good, though
