It’s simple: Whiskey makes for a great gift, whether you want to spend $25, $50, or more. And lucky for any whiskey drinker getting a bottle in their stocking this year, today’s selection seems to just keep getting better. From Kentucky to Japan, incredible whiskeys are getting the attention they deserve right now.
