3. Personalized Whisky Stones
Whisky stones are fantastic for the Whisky purists who like their drams cold. It’s also just a nice accessory to have in our drinks cabinet/fridge.
Since there are a number of different brands of Whisky stones out there, we have gone for the personalized kind. This just adds a little something more personal and means every time they enjoy a nice cold dram, they’ll be thinking of you!
4. Ian Buxton's Book: 101 Legendary Whiskies
Ian Buxton is a legend on the Whisky scene and getting your loved one a book by him will look really good, especially if you’re not into Whisky yourself. His 101 Legendary Whiskies is a great gift as it is interesting and informative and will have your Whisky-loving friends drooling.
Although these Whiskies are mostly rare and expensive, and so your friends will probably never try them, the book is packed full of fun facts that any Whisky nerd will truly appreciate.
5. Flaviar’s Whiskey Exploration Kit
For the world travelers in your life, Flaviar’s Whiskey Exploration Kit is a perfect gift that helps you travel to twelve different destinations with your palate from the comfort of your home.
The trick is to turn everyone into a Spirits aficionado, one sample at a time.
The 12 Whiskeys themselves are only a half of the experience (although they come in generous samples of 1.7oz each); the kit includes other perks for a complete mouthwatering experience.
A proud owner of Flaviar’s Whiskey Exploration Kit, also gets a high-quality, award-winning Gleincarin Whiskey Glass, info cards with a Tasting Spiral for every Whiskey, a Tasting Journal Booklet to keep notes and twelve exclusive on-demand expert videos.
And the best part of it is, you get the two of the world’s most renowned spirited experts (David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum) guiding you through the taste journey, every step of the way.
6. Diamond Whisky Glass
Everyone knows the Glencairn is probably the best and most popular Whisky glass, but this diamond glass is a lot more interesting to look at.
They probably don’t work to funnel the aromas to the top of the glass or allow you to admire the legs on your dram, but when you look like a James Bond villain whilst drinking, that won’t really matter.
This is the perfect gift, especially if your giftee already has a Glencairn or something similar, as it gives them the option to just enjoy their dram out of a really cool-looking glass.
And for those who want to broadcast their allegiance to excellence, there are Flaviar socks, shirts, sweaters, and pins that will elevate the Spirits game. You gotta look good when you feel good.
7. Flaviar Infinity bottle
More glassware, but this time a decanter set that will give an edge of sophistication and class every time a dram is poured.
A new passion for your loved one you can enjoy together. Turn your lucky gift recipient into a genuine Master Blender with Flaviar’s Infinity Bottle - a gorgeous handmade decanter. This is a set that will look good in any room and impress any guest.
It can be your loved ones' carefully crafted blend, a liquid diary, or just a bin for the last drops from his home bar bottles.
Flaviar Infinity Bottle is a blank slate for the ultimate DIY project that is guaranteed to bring you two even closer. Unleash your creativity, and build your heirloom in a bottle. The title of a Master Blender comes with it. And don't limit yourself to only one infinity bottle. Create your own Whisky blend or a peaty concoction.
8. The hot stuff- Whisky bottle
If you are still not sure what to get them, you can always go back to a more traditional gift: We'll give you a head start on growing your Spirits lover’s home bar with the perfect selection of 3 Whisky bottles.
1) Johnnie Walker Blue Label
The number one Scotch Whisky brand in the world, Johnnie Walker distributed to over 180 countries around the world is known to produce popular expressions such as grainy and spicy Red Label, a smoky and fruity Black Label, fruity and rich Gold Label Reserve, but not everyone is familiar with a certified hidden gem Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
Regarded as one of the best blends available with the purpose of recreating a special premium blend of the finest Scotch Whiskey John Walker’s son Alexander crafted originally.
With the mahogany color and a scent of warm hazelnuts, and smokey vanilla on the nose, it nicely opens up with dark chocolate, honey, and a bit of ginger on the palate before the long and soft finish. No wonder Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the Flaviar Community’s Favorite!
Distillery: Johnnie Walker
Style: Blended Scotch Whisky
"Superb. Absolutely magnificent. The only blended scotch I can definitively speak as highly of as the Islay single malts and Japanese whiskys I normally gravitate to." - Egan
2) Naked Malt Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Known as a modern twist in the old craft of Whisky making, Naked Malt has only been around since 2011 but nevertheless established itself as a premium malt Whisky maker. Known to blend the world’s finest malt Whiskies in barrels never holding Whisky before- thus the name Naked.
Naked Malt Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is a wonderful blend of the world's finest Single Malts called also The Whisky for the "older millennials". First matured in American and European oak casks, before finished in Oloroso Sherry casks this is a special dram!
This multi-award-winning beauty presents itself with an amber color and smooth sherry aroma and peach on the nose. Notes of toffee raspberry jam, and caramel rounds up nicely in a medium-long cocoa finish.
Style: Blended Whisky
"This is pretty close to perfect, in my opinion. Great balance, not too hot, not too smokey or peaty/mossy. It's not the best Scotch I've ever had, but for the price, it's hard to beat." - Mark
3.) Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old
The most northerly distillery in Scotland Highland Park has a long tradition of Whisky making, dating back to the late 18th century. Highland Park Whiskies aren't for the faint-hearted and are typically peat-dominated and full of fruity and spicy notes.
Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old is some of the best Highland Park has to offer and was even called “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.” by perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson.
This dram is filled with complexity with floral notes, cherry, and of course peat smoke worthy of Highland Park. Again very complex on the palate with a creamy texture, espresso, citrus, and delicate spice before a nice long sweet- herbal finish.
Distillery: Highland Park
Age: 18 Year Old
Style: Single Malt Scotch Whisky
"Delicious, deep, complex Scotch. The palate hits with peat and brine. A swish opens up dried fruits and honey, with a delicious, dark fruit finish that hangs around long after your last sip. Take your time with this one and enjoy it slowly. A truly fantastic, unique spirit." - George
We hope we made your gift-hunting easier. Spend these festive weeks with people you love, drinking only the best booze. Cheers!
