2017 Whisky Bible
Jim Murray is a great writer on the subject of whiskey. His annual whisky bible features one of the most important rankings of worthy bottles. A good companion for evenings!
Does he still have no whiskey flask? Come on! Every guy needs a good, easy-to-use one for the regular day or to take with him. Choose not the one that just looks nice, but the one that has a simple snap closure and is easy to clean.
There are more ideas:
- Some men say, good whiskey with cigar elevates to “Heaven on Earth” status. So give him a set of best cigars to pair with whiskey.
- The Whiskey Glass, cause it can never be enough good glasses for the drink. It should feel sturdy and easy to control, heavy in the hand.
- Whiskey ice balls.
But first make sure your man drinks whiskey with ice. Some whiskey lovers believe, ice dulls the flavor of whiskey. Reducing the temperature of the whiskey, it inhibites the flavor and freezes its aroma. Some prefer to add a drop-small splash of water.
- A set of whiskey stones to cool down their drink without adding water.
So one more wonderful alternative to cool down the drink. You can even get them personalized.
- Wish for something bigger in size? What about a personalized whiskey barrel that may stay all life long with him. A personalized decanter in a nice shape would also be great!
- A cocktail shaker. You may add a set of bar tools and a whiskey cocktail book.
- Make everything be with the whiskey flavour! Whiskey barrel coffee, or infused toothpicks, whiskey scented tea light candles, or even a whiskey soap make a great addition to the gift basket set.
Do you want to impress him? Add a card with some wonderful facts about whisky capable of stunning every drinker. Here are some for you!
