    it has a bit of an edge to it. (A lovely, lovely haggis)

    Hi,

    A BBC journalist went to Ayr, the UK. He was tasting haggis, and and then he said, "Marvellous, it has a bit of an edge to it. A lovely, lovely haggis".

    Did he mean the haggis was a bit of sharpness about "a bit of an edge to it" ?

    Thank you!

    It is impossible to know what "edge" meant. I assume that the writer has eaten haggis before and found this one to be a bit different -- in a good way.
