2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Bourbon and Whisky

Another year will soon come to its end. 2021 was better than 2020 but I don’t have to tell you it was not an easy year. I hope you’re able to hug family this holiday season and share a dram or two with all your loved ones. Here’s my 2021 gift guide to help you buy a delicious gift for someone or for yourself.

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’s 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. Finally, I will never recommend a product I haven’t tasted.

You’ll find reviews of these either here on my Instagram or on my Blog. Link in bio. Each selection lists where you can find. Note some are options I’ve feature previously on previous guides.
