Whiskey Gift FAQs

Is Whiskey a Good Wedding Gift?

Weddings tend to be a mix of traditional, modern, and personal. If you’re shopping for a whiskey-loving couple, then a high-end bottle or unique whiskey-related accessories could be the perfect gift.

What Are Inexpensive Whiskey-Related Gifts?

Are you shopping for a whiskey snob but don’t want to shell out a car payment on a fancy bottle of booze? Don’t fret! You can find excellent deals on unique whiskey-related gifts that won’t break the bank. Consider looking for gifts such as a whiskey stone set, tumblers, funny socks, a whiskey tasting journal for note-takers, or bitters.

What is the Best Scotch to Buy As a Gift?

The best scotch to buy as a gift will depend on the palette of the recipient you’re buying for and the price point you’re looking to stay under. We have some luxurious options on this list, but for some more wallet-friendly alternatives, we suggest Johnnie Walker Black Label, Oban 14 Year, Lagavulin 16 Year, Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Glenlivet 12 Year, Laphroaig 10 Year, and Highland Park 12 Year.

What is the Smoothest Whiskey?

There are multiple wonderful light and smooth whiskeys on the market just waiting for you to start sipping. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to definitively claim one whiskey as the smoothest of them all, and there’s sadly no magic mirror on the wall we can ask. So instead, we have a list of light and smooth whiskey suggestions, including The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey, Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old, George Dickel Bottled in Bond, Suntory Hakushu Single Malt Japanese Whisky, Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey, and Johnnie Walker Black Label. Cheers to choices!
