So, my FI’s gift for his best man is a monogrammed shot glass, and I thought it would be a good idea to get him some kind of bottle of liquor to go with it. I asked his wife (who happens to be my MOH) what he would like and she just said “some kind of whiskey.” Well, I don’t know anything about whiskey.
So if you were going to buy a bottle for a man, what would you buy?

My husband says a safe bet for a scotch drinker is a McCallan 18 or 20.

My fiance’s favorite bourbon is a small batch that he swears is amazing and a huge value for dollar. It’s the Rowan’s Creek bourbon.

How much would you want to spend roughly per bottle?

When I drink whiskey I jump back and forth between Crown Royal and Wild Turkey with honey. With the crown being my favorite and so far the only whisky I found that I can drink straight up. Although a lot of whiskey drinkers I know love Jack Daniels.

@Olive27: Goodness, I don’t even know. Like I said, I know nothing about whiskey, so I don’t even know what’s average. Under $50 would be ideal, though.

Well, do you want Scotch, Whisky, or Bourbon? They’re all different. I think bourbon is a bit more universal – I love Eagle Rare and Knob Creek (the new smoked maple is awesome!) and Maker’s. Bulleit and Booker’s are good , too.
I also like Jameson’s.

Woodford Reserve is another great and reasonably priced bourbon. In the <$50 category I think you’ll get more bang for your buck with a bourbon, by the way.

Thanks for the tip on bourbon. I’ll probably go that route, then.

@CarolinaCola: I just got an amazing bottle of Basil Hayden’s for under $50. Its nice and smooth, you can get other brands too but this one was pleasing even the whiskey hating crowd. Also Woodford Reserve is another nice selection.

Glenlivet has a great 12 yr single malt. Or Johnny Walker is good. Don’t go with the red label though.
