Boss’s Day is just around the corner. Have you already come up with the perfect gift ideas for your Boss?
In 1958, Patricia Bays Haroski registered October 16 as National Boss’s Day with the Chamber of Commerce. She chose that date in honor of her father’s birthday since she was working at his State Farm Insurance Company at the time. Four years later, in 1962, the Governor of Illinois officially backed Patricia’s registration. Ever since then, Bosses Day has been celebrated on that date in the United States and Canada as a day for employees to recognize their employers or those in supervisory roles.
Even if your boss isn’t always your favorite person, it’s considerate and appropriate to gift him or her with something memorable that will be truly appreciated. With that thought in mind, here’s a list of seven truly spirited gift ideas for Boss’s Day that will make your boss sit up and take notice.
Chivas Regal Gold Signature 18 Year Blended Scotch Whiskey
It’s hard to think of a better way to say, “Happy Boss’s Day!”, then by presenting your supervisor with a bottle of Chivas Regal Gold Signature 18 Year Blended Scotch Whiskey. This blended Scotch is from one of the finest whiskey producers available. Made from a combination of single malt and grain whiskies that have been aged at least 18 years, this is a rich and bold whiskey perfectly suited for sipping. It is full bodied with notes of hazelnuts, vanilla, dried apricots, dark chocolate, vanilla and honey with a very subtle back tone of smoldering wood. The honeyed apricot and spice on the palate are tempered with just a hint of oak. It has a long and warm finish with hints of cedar and spice that make this a very complex and enjoyable blended scotch whiskey. Make it even more special by adding up to two lines of engraved text.
Suntory Yamazaki 12 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whiskey
Suntory Yamazaki 12 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whiskey is an exceptionally unique and sophisticated spirit.

Like most Japanese spirits, this special scotch is meant to complement a meal, but it is magnificent on its own. Suntory Yamazaki is distilled with the purest water from a deep source in the Land of the Rising Sun. The Artisans who create it consider it an art form of the highest degree, an art form that began in 1923.

On the nose you will delight in rich spicy vanilla, lemongrass, and golden syrup. Your palate will be treated to sweet and soft vanilla with just a touch of cinnamon. The long smooth finish is also redolent with vanilla.
