2018 Holiday Gift Guide: Bourbon and Whisky

It’s that time of year again! If whisk(e)y is what you are looking for to give as a gift, I am here to help.

Note: If you aren’t familiar with my blog I purchase every single whiskey, whisky and bourbon I have featured in this blog. I have been honest about my opinion without any biased. It’s hard work and it costs money, but it is truly something I enjoy. For those of you who continue to follow and support me, THANK YOU!

Let’s get started, the list below is broken down by price range. Most of the prices below are a range of costs (+/-), as prices may vary depending on where you live and buy. Finally, I have tasted every single product mentioned on my list. I will never recommend a product I myself haven’t tasted. You’ll be able to click on the links below to read my notes on each of the product.
