The 12 Single Malt Scotches of Christmas

balvenie_caribbean_cask_14yo.jpgIt's getting to that time of year when the prior planners need to figure out what to buy people on their Christmas list, especially since shipping at this time of year can be unreliable and the malls are some circle of Dante's hell. So where does that leave us? The answer to that question, just like so many others, is "the liquor store."

The liquor store is close, usually less crowded than your typical Wal-Mart, and full of delicious, delicious liquor. Tony Sachs over at Huffington Post has put together a list of a dozen gift-worthy bottles as well as a sort of "Scotch 101" vibe so you can choose with confidence.

This is the perfect time of year for a bottle of single-malt Scotch. After all, there are few more enjoyable ways to warm up on a cold winter's night than with a snifter of whisky by a roaring fire (or a Yule Log on TV if, like me, you live in an apartment without a fireplace). And a good bottle of Scotch says something about both the giver and the recipient. It says, "I have good taste. I enjoy the finer things in life. I'm an adult; this isn't Jagermeister or FourLoko we're talking about. I see those same refined characteristics in you, gift recipient. And if for some reason I'm wrong about you, well, invite me over and I'll be happy to down that bottle for you."
See the full dirty dozen at the Huffington Post.
