If your three favourite men are named Jim Beam, Johnnie Walker, and Jack Daniels, and your favourite animal is a Wild Turkey, then you most likely have a fondness for whiskey. An acquired taste, whiskey can be enjoyed neat, ‘on the rocks,’ or mixed. However you enjoy your drink, there is a large selection of whiskeys available online. As a general rule, the longer the whiskey has been fermented and bottled, the more expensive (and better) it will taste. Keep this in mind when searching for the perfect bottle.
Whether you are stocking your own home bar, or sending a special gift to a whiskey lover – splurge on a limited-edition bottle like the Johnnie Walker GOLD set – you are spoilt for choice. Don’t want to spend that much but still enjoy the taste Walker brings? Try the Johnnie Walker Special Edition RED Label Scotch – a very rare bottle and a nice one to add to the collection, it will look great amongst the rest of your average alcoholic bottles. For the ultimate luxury good, 17 year old Hibiki Whiskey is a superb whiskey from Suntory. With a sweet and rich palette and crisp notes of mixed peels, raisin and custard, it’s sure to make someone’s day, week or year! If you’re on a bit of a budget, 12 year old Chivas Regal Scotch is available in 700mL and won’t break your bank. It’s the perfect little gift on its own to say ‘thank you.’
