Once upon a time this whiskey was exclusively sold in Mitchell's grocers in Dublin. The bottle is now much adored throughout the world and in 2018 was awarded 'liquid gold' status by Jim Murray in his respected whisky bible. This whiskey is a supremely sippable, stubbornly Irish celebration of caramel and fruit. Give this one to any newbies or theatre geeks, any stage enthusiasts are sure to be bowled over by the company this whiskey keeps.
A modern Irish whiskey that oozes the smoothness and warmth associated with the Emerald Isle's heritage drams. This Dublin-made tipple caresses the tongue with summer fruits, warm spices and pepper. A drinking experience that will keep your friends around long after dinner has been served. Best presented to any Irish whiskey heads you know.
One of the world's most recognisable whiskey brands. Jack Daniel's have an expansive collection on offer, their single-barrel expression is an inexpensive and thoughtful gift for the JD lover in your life. A full-bodied whiskey with plenty of spicy rye balanced against honey and cereal. One for the Jack and Coke drinker, this is a versatile expression that will see them gradually wean off the mixer.
A new breed of whiskey. Sexton is an Irish single malt that is geared toward budding whiskey enthusiasts and cocktail makers. The hexagonal bottle is testament to the distillery's targeting of a new age of whiskey drinker, while in terms of flavour, honey is fused with peppery pears and a biting oaky spiciness. Buy this for the bartender in your family.
Conversely to bourbon, rye whiskey must be comprised of at least 51% rye grain, which typically gives rye a sharp, spicy, alcohol-forward flavor profile. Sagamore Spirit is a young distillery out of Baltimore that is doing some creative things in the world of rye whiskey. The signature rye whiskey is a blend of a high rye and low rye mash bill, each aged 4-6 years. The low and high rye blend delivers a complex flavor profile that contains notes of spicy cinnamon, sweet honey, and a nutty finish. This unique spirit is excellent for sipping neat or mixed into a Manhattan.
The corn gives the whiskey a sweeter flavor than the other popular North American style, rye whiskey. Think of cornbread and rye bread; their sweet versus spicy characteristics mirror the differences between bourbon and rye.
Once you pick your whiskey style, check the proof on the label, which can range from 85 to 130 proof. Some phrases on a bottle of whiskey are just fluff, but others offer clues as to what is inside the bottle:
There is a whiskey for every budget, with nice bourbons available for $20-30. Exported Single Malt Scotch is a wee bit pricier, with bottles starting at $35-40. Older, rarer whiskies can be found for well over $100 and even $1,000. Unless you are looking for a jaw-dropper purchase that you know your recipient will love, stick to whiskies priced under $60.
