Five Great Gifts for Bourbon Drinkers
One of our highest rated items that we currently sell on our website is the Woodford Reserve Bourbon Gift Basket, which has a five-star rating.
This bourbon gift basket includes an excellent bottle from Woodford Reserve: Distiller’s Select. The Distiller’s Select is characterized as having a rich, smooth taste of toffee, chocolate, caramel and spice.
Seasoned drinkers of bourbon will recognize Distiller’s Select as a high quality bourbon — whether this is their first time drinking the bottle from Woodford Reserve or if they have been sipping it for years.
The bourbon gift basket also includes truffles, pretzels, cookies, candy, popcorn, cheese and crackers.
This bottle, coming in 750 ml., is currently listed for $139.
A second excellent gift for bourbon drinkers to consider is Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon. This bottle comes in 127.9 proof — providing an experience that is unique to this bourbon gift.
This is a great gift for the bourbon lover as the bottle has experienced ideal maturation, being finished in port barrels, giving it a unique, distinctive taste. It is recommended to consume the bottle either neat or with a splash of water so as to fully appreciate the subtle nuances.
The nose is with citrus and almonds, along with vanilla and heavy caramel, with a taste of black pepper and blackberries.
This high end liquor gift comes in 750 ml. and is priced for $435.
Bourbon drinkers will rejoice in our third recommended bottle on our best bourbons of 2016 list — the Wild Turkey Master’s Keep 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Although master distiller Jimmy Russell has gone on record declaring that he prefers the taste of 8-12 year-old bourbons because they don’t lose their vanilla & caramel flavors, Wild Turkey unveiled a bourbon whiskey aged much longer than that—Wild Turkey Master’s Keep 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey . Master’s Keep bourbon has been aged in three different buildings—two wood and one brick—which exposed it to varying levels of humidity and temperatures. This both lowered its alcohol content and ensured that it tasted of more than just oak.
This 17 year-old bourbon retains an intense caramel nose and flavor, but is more dry than sweet, with a spicy oak and slightly bitter dark chocolate taste. If you know someone that loves Wild Turkey, give them the Bird with this extravagant gift while it lasts. Wild Turkey Master’s Keep 17 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey makes a great gift.
This is definitely a good bourbon for a gift as previous customers have favored this bottle.
It is currently sized in 750 ml. and priced for $255.
A fourth excellent gift for bourbon lovers is the Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey.
Imagine, friends and family have arrived at your brother’s home to celebrate the New Year. The evening was characterized with witty conversation. As the clock comes closer to striking in the New Year, you slowly walk over to your brother, with this excellent bourbon gift in your hand.
The smile on your brother’s face is radiant as you place the Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey on the table adjacent to you both. Vivid memories are discussed while you open the bottle.
The Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is not your ordinary bourbon gift. Rather, it is an award winning bourbon, having won several accolades since 2010, which includes a 94-point rating from the Beverage Tasting Institute and silver medals at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
You brother grabs two glasses that you pour the bourbon gift into. The smell is immaculate. You both cheer to a new year as the ball counts down to zero. It is these experiences that make life worth living.
The bottle is sized in 750 ml. and is currently priced for $105.
The last top gift for bourbon lovers is the Four Roses Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey — a flavorful bourbon gift idea.
Most customers serve this bottle on the rocks so as to taste the unique flavors present within the bottle. The drinker will recognize creamy vanilla, smooth caramel, tangy ripe fruits, along with a hint of oak.
