Whisky, bourbon, rye and scotch, served neat or warmed up in a toddy are the perfect drinks (and gifts) for the season. Some popular Whisky gifts are 1) Highland Park 12 Year Whisky- This classic single malt scotch is also the best value bottle on the list. Highland Park is one of two distilleries located on the Orkney Islands on the northeastern coast of Scotland. This lightly-peated whisky is the best possible introduction to the heavily aromatic peat smoke which infuses the barley and gives Highland Park its smoky essence. Aged in ex-sherry casks, this bottle has a nice light flavor of dried fruit and a nuttiness along with a little spice and peppery finish. 2) Nikka Coffey Grain- Japanese whisky is gaining popularity with good reason, winning many top honors and awards worldwide. Japanese whisky is closer to scotch than any other whisky. The founder of the Nikka Distillery, Matsuzaka Taketsuru, studied organic chemistry in Glasgow and worked at multiple distilleries in Scotland in the 1920s. He made whisky in Japan extremely similar to how it's made in Scotland. Bottles are getting rarer, but this excellent example of grain whisky (as apposed to single malts) is still readily available. There are no coffee notes here; the Coffey in its name has nothing to do with the drink, but the name of the still. This bottle has a great graininess and a pleasant vanilla with some hints of coconut.3) Barrell Bourbon Batch 005-  A newer brand in the market, every batch of Barrell Bourbon is a limited release, bottled at cask strength and made in limited quantities. The founder and producer, Joe Beatrice, travels through Kentucky and Tennessee sampling and buying barrels and then blending them together in new inventive and creative ways. Each has an intentionally distinct flavor profile, which is the essence of the Barrell brand. The current batch, number 005, is one of the nuttiest bourbons available and their spiciest batch to date, with notes of cinnamon and pepper along with cherries, stone fruit and chocolate.

If there's a birthday, wedding or anniversary coming up, you can take a look at some impressive selection of whiskeys, if that person is a whiskey lover. When you're buying a whiskey as a present, it's a good idea to start with what they usually drink. If they're new to whiskey, or they like blends, you can help them explore a wider range of flavours with a tasting gift pack. Alternatively, if they like a Single Malt Scotch Whiskey, start with the same distillery. If they drink Talisker 10 year old, you'll not go far wrong with Talisker Storm. Or even Talisker 18 year old, if you're looking for a life-long friendship.

Gifting a bottle of good whiskey can never go wrong. Don't worry, it is a great idea. And do choose the brand wisely. With such a wide range of whiskey gifts to select from, you can either chose their favourite to make their celebration complete or find a new whiskey for him to try. With the option to add chocolates, glasses or a presentation gift box, you can be confident there’s something great for him under the tree. You can also present him customized shot glasses to make him feel really special. This will work as a suitable gift for anyone who has an importance in your life and loves whiskey.

Yes, you heard correct, Whisky is a good choice as a gift to your friend, relatives, family friend or as a corporate gift also. If you know the about the person then it is good to choose a gift for her/him. If he/she likes alcohol then it’s time for you to relax.

In the evening take your car, go to the place where you can buy good whisky and grab one for a gift and ask for gift wrapping. Isn’t it easy? If you know some of the best places where you can get good whiskey then it's not a bad option as a gift, provided receiver must have same taste like yours

Whisky has been the popular item to gift anyone close to you in today’s world. The problem with shopping for someone else’s whisky is what bottle to buy, and if you don’t both know whisky and know the other person’s tastes, the choices available nowadays are mind-boggling. One route that bypasses a confusing stroll through the aisles of your local upscale liquor store is to go with a gift set, and there are now a few choice options to go with. Another way to go with the whole whisky gift idea is to go down a staple path: cooking with whisky and get a bundle of whisky made food products to gift to your friend.

Again, since cooking with liquor is not everyone’s specialty, it is preferred that you buy from one of the more common brands of whisky or simply remember from your friend’s choice of bottles when you casually sit together of drinks. Just remember, the way whisky can bond friends together, nothing else can!

Whisky is one of the best gifts that you can give to a person because it offers a personal touch when compared to other gifts. For Example: if you are gifting whisky to a friend he/she will invite you for a drink and it may take your relationship/friendship to next level. Being a Rye lover, I would always recommend Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye for a gift but better analyse the taste of your friend before zeroing in on the flavour. Now that I had said Whisky is a great gift but make sure that person receiving it is above legal age for drinking. 

For a person who appreciates Whisky, it certainly makes for the perfect gift.
If there is no specific preference, I would highly recommend Paul John (Available in Bangalore)
and/or Amrut Fusion.
The unique thing about these is that these are Indian Single Malts. And they stand their ground
quite well among the likes of the Glenfiddichs and Glenmorangies of the world.
Some of the other gift-worthy brands are (In no particular order):
1. Glenfiddich 12/15 year old
2. JB Scotch
3. Johnny Walker Black Label
4. Glenlivet 12 years old
5. MacAllan 12 year old
6. Lagavulin
There are several more great ones out there, but these are quite awesome on their own!

While most people already know which brands of whiskies are their favourites, it is never a bad idea to order something that they already love, i.e., more whisky.

However, there are other whisky accompaniments that every whisky lover wants but most do not possess. You can start with some of these gifts with a whisky bottle and rest assured, your friend will only like you more.

Whisky Glasses: Good whisky looks and tastes better, figuratively speaking in an equally fine whisky glass.

Ice Ball maker: The regular ice cubes definitely cool down your whisky, but they also melt down soon diluting the golden water of life. The round shape of an ice cube guarantees lesser contact with the liquid and thus a longer melting time while still cooling the drink.

Measuring Flask: The one thing almost every drinker would want to possess is a measuring flask. The preferable ones are which have a 30ml volume on one side and 60ml on the other.

It is not an easy task giving away whisky as a gift to a friend because you would never know
that your friend maybe drinks whisky with you only because you like whisky and even if you
know him enough, you would barely have an idea about which kind of whisky suits his taste.
Does he like the throat stingers, single malts or does he like blended scotch?
You can still try your best, and either do nothing or choose from some of the better known
brands in the market because doing so would reduce the risk of picking a bad gift.
First, you need to take a call on the budget you are comfortable with. I am sure the budget
will depend on the strength of the friendship and without trying to sound further shallow, here
are some of the common brands you can try gifting to your friend.

Here are some choicest whiskey brands, perfect as a gift for that special someone, who knows his drinks! Read on:

• Blade and Bow 22: This limited-edition bourbon has the right mix of oak, spice, and vanilla. This 22-year old drink is a prized item in American whiskey collectors!

Well, I certainly have received quite a few good whiskies from my friends and relatives, but those aren’t the ones I like the most. For me, when someone mentions whisky as a gift, I would definitely talk about the instance when I’d gifted my father his favorite brand of whisky!

Receiving gifts is a great feeling, surely yes, but there is just something about the surprise and happiness on the other person’s face that makes giving gifts a much more special moment!

Anyway, it was my dad’s 58 th birthday and I didn’t know what to give him! I knew he loved a lot many things, whisky being one of it. My father loves single malt scotch more than any other kind of whisky, so I got him a bottle of Old Pulteney Vintage 1989 , and he simply loved it!

And trust me guys, we both did share a few glasses as well besides the warm hugs; this whisky is impeccably wonderful!

It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a whisky wizard, when it comes to appreciating whisky as a whole, it is the understanding of these words that matter the most.

Let’s start!

  • Alcohol by volume or ABV:

It is the proportion of alcohol as a percentage of the total volume. The higher it is, the stronger the whisky will be!

  • Cask

Refers to the barrel in which the whisky was aged, usually made of oak.

  • Complex

This means that the whisky has many layers and elements.

  • Legs

Legs refer to the way a whisky acts when swirled in a glass.

  • Malt whisky

The one made from fermented mash produced almost exclusively from malted barley grain.

  • Grain whisky

The one made by using at least one type of grain other than malted barley. Mostly used are corn, wheat or rye,etc.

  • Mouthfeel

The way a whisky feels in your mouth is all this word means!

  • Peat

It is the fuel over which malted barley is dried.

  • Single malt whisky

A whisky made from one batch of grain mush and produced in a single distillery. Often mixed with other whisky casks to achieve suitable flavor.

  • Single Cask / single barrel whisky

Made only from the single processed grain mush. No other previously produced whiskies are mixed with it.

  • Blended whiskies

Made by mixing several types of malt, grain and other additives that impact the flavor of the drink.

If you want to gift something special on the special events like marriage anniversary, birthday or any other important functions, then 'Whisky' is the best option. Whisky is considered to be the best gift to be given to the special person as you know that person's favorite brands of Whisky. So if you’re still searching for a decent gift idea for a friend, family member, or coworker, you can rarely go wrong with booze. (Of course, please at least do some digging to consider possible health and wellness-related issues.) But if you’re the type of person whose first thought is to swing by the wine aisle and grab a bottle of Three Buck Chuck, let’s pump the brakes and consider your better, more delicious options. Specifically, the sweet brown, golden goodness that is Whisky. Bourbon Snobs and label chasers will tell you that Bourbon A is better than Bourbon B, C, and D or that John Q. Ryemaker which offers a smoother taste in a bottle that was hand-crafted by a fingerless nun in the mountains of San Bonerbarge. But we don’t have time for that, as the holiday season is already squatting over us. Instead, here are some personal favorites that just might make you the big winner at your company. 

If you are a whisky aficionado, then you should know the meaning of Scotch, the difference between Malt Whisky and Grain whisky and should be able to distinguish between Single Malt, Vatted Malt, Blended Scotch, the age of the Whisky, the meaning of proof, or ‘on the rocks’, etc. In case you don’t know and are willing to become a smart whiskey drinker, here are some common whiskey terms decoded for you.

1. Beer: In case you didn’t know, whiskey is actually made from beer! Yes, the beer that everyone is so crazy about. In reality, beer is only a stage of whiskey making and becomes more awesome when turned into whiskey. A lot of beer lovers would disagree here though!
2. Chill filtration: The cloudy look that a whiskey gets when it is left to get cold. This is due the fact that its fatty acids begin to de congeal as a result of which, the whiskey starts looking cloudy. A lot of makers, however, filter it even at the cost of diminishing the flavor of the spirit.
3. Dram: This refers to a shot of the whiskey that you are not supposed to shoot.
4. Made By: Just so you know, the ‘made by’ on the bottle does not indicate the distillery where the whiskey was distilled. Interesting, right?

A country is defined by its drinks the same way it is defined by its food. And whether that means you’re
warming up with a vodka on the rocks. India is the world’s third largest consumer of whiskey after China
and Russia, and here we bring you a round-up of 5 most popular whiskey brands available in India.

#1 Officer’s Choice: Hailed as the number 1 selling whiskey in India

#2 McDowell’s No.1: A product of United Spirits Limited, this brand launched in the year 1968 is the
number two selling whiskey across India.

#3 Director’s Special: Previously manufactured by Shaw Wallace, this whiskey brand is now owned by
United Spirits Limited

#4 Seagram’s Imperial Blue: The popularity of this whiskey is thanks to its strong and well-executed
advertising.

#5 Royal Stag: The growing popularity of Royal Stag whiskey

Getting whisky as a gift for a whisky lover can be problematic because it is only the person

who knows best what kind of whisky they like. With that in mind, you can definitely choose

from these gifts for a whisky lover as these work for newbies and seasoned whisky lovers

alike.

 

Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style

Those who love bourbon are always on a lookout for a new release to try from and if you

have a friend who knows his bourbon from his scotch, give away a bottle of Old Forester

1920. This bottle is a reproduction of the prohibition era “medicinal” bourbon and is highly

recommended.

Snifters

If your friend is into trying different and classy whiskies, then you should gift him a snifter. If

you do not know what a snifter is, it is a whisky tasting glass that looks like a wine glass with

a narrower mouth. The narrower mouth is typically because whisky is stronger than wine and

this glass helps you take a whiff from a distance. Ideal for whisky tastings, order a snifter.

Chivas Ultis

Chivas has come out with a new whisky which is a big and peaty single malt. Ultis is an

excellent blend and is also among the smoothest whiskies on the market, with notes of

honey, caramel, and fruit. It’s also the first all-malt blended scotch from the Chivas brand.

When you need a drink with an intense flavor and a smooth finish, this is where you turn.

Whiskey is one of those drinks that everyone recognizes; whether you're a cowboy slugging

back shots or a connoisseur sipping a snifter, whiskey runs the gamut. So whether you're

pouring an Old Fashioned for your cowboy or a glass of bourbon on the rocks for your Mad

Man, A gift of Whiskey will fulfill your needs and plus it can be gifted in any occasion.

There's nothing cozier than enjoying dark spirits like whiskey around the holidays.

 

The 6 Best Bottles to Gift a Whiskey Lover are:

 

1. Glenlivvett 18 Years – Price 12403 approx

2. Yamazaki 18 Year Old Whiskey - Price 14350 approx

4. Johnnie walker Black label- Price 5920 approx

5. Paul John Whiskey Brilliance - Price 2900 approx

6. Royal Salute Festive 21 Years - Price 14900 approx

 

This is certainly a difficult gift to deliver on considering how you will never know the personal
tastes of your friend and this can end up meaning two things, your friend is going to accept
your whiskey and never drink it, which means it’ll just sit there in his bar or that your friend
may stop considering you a friend completely.

Different people have different tastes and likings when it comes to their whisky. Some
people like it spicy and go for Rye whisky while others prefer sweet whiskies like bourbon.
Then there are those who would not set foot out of the single malt territory and finally those
who make do with drinks other than whisky.
So sure, even gifting something so nice as whisky is a really scary territory. However, you
would know your friend from a couple of common drinking sessions where you would know
his drink of preference. If you sit together over blended whisky, you can probably expose him
to blended scotches like Johnny Walker’s Red or black label. All of these suggestions are
based on the assumption that you’re willing to shell out some moolah.
If you guys already choose from blended scotch on your outings, then you can go for a
single malt, and that is sure to blow him away. Glenmorangie is a good choice.
Essentially, your gift has to be above your common drink, and that should give you the start
you need while choosing whisky as a gift.

When it comes to gifting others on a special occasion, many of us usually draw a
