D1 - I'd spend $69 on it... seeing it here at $99 and higher. There are so many other great options for less than that, it's not worth it. If you can find for $69, agree. Buy it.

Same here! Fantastic presentation as well.

Waterford Irish whiskey is a pretty unique one

Can’t go wrong w Macallan for a scotch or if you can track down any of the Weller series for a bourbon. Or you can always try to track down a Pappy Van Winkle 😬!

Good luck with the Pappy, we managed to get our hands on a bottle, and resold it for close to 1k. Couldn’t pass up the offer and needed money at the time 🤷🏽‍♀️. Would love to have one on my shelf again for personal enjoyment!

This is the best group! Incredible recommendations!

Lots of great suggestions, all over the map in flavor profiles.

You might want to go funny (Glenkinche is great, and just look at the name)

Or if they are a whisky fan already and you want to be thoughtful, find an independent local distiller rather than the usual liquor store lineup. Very good chance it will be new to them and.

It depends on your definition of unique and fun--but maybe looking at a bottling that focuses on terroir. I know that Bruichladdich was one of the first to do it, and you can type in the code from each bottle and learn about where all of the barley that went in to make that whiskey was grown. I've seen some even more esoteric bottlings that have come from a single source in a single cask bottling. Probably harder to control quality in a bottle like that, but it is certainly unique and interesting!

For unique, maybe look at independent bottlers as well. For the uninitiated, this is where a third party buys whiskeys in bulk from the distiller and casks, ages, and blends it themselves for a unique bottling that the distillers do not sell.

There is newer distillery, buffalo chip. They make a reserve which is very good. And it is only about $50

Think about this for a minute... why would you sell a book? Because you didn't want it anymore or it was beyond its useful life, kinda like an old car... it's old, rusty and needs more maintainence than it provides useful transportation, it's in the repair shop more often... everytime it goes in you find something else wrong with it? Plus, the prices the buyers are willing to pay are outrageous, by the time you get it paid off it's in the junk yard. No easy solution to building a sustainable business except hard, persistent work.

Found this yesterday. One of the most flavorful bourbons of 2021 for me so far. Notes of cherry, fudge, cocoa, and a heck of a long finish. Try it if you find it, better than the FAE-01 for me for sure.

Sweet nose, but then a hit of savory spice on the tongue with an insanely long finish that is all cigar.

I wouldn’t drink this with a cigar, because you wouldn’t notice it, but it’s insane how much that finish lingers and mimics the mouth tingle after smoking a cigar.
