Whisky can say a lot about a person, so what do you want to say about them? If you don't know your bourbon from your scotch, your Islay from your Speyside, choosing the right brand can be quite a daunting task.

best scotch to buy as a gift

Whisky is, more often than not, best enjoyed neat. But it's a matter of preference; sometimes you need a neat Islay dram after a long day, sometimes you want to enjoy a long drink of Irish malt over ice. We've pointed out the whiskies best enjoyed with a little something extra.

Here are our top whiskies to order online for that special someone in your life. For more, visit our reviews section and find over 200 practical buyer's guides including taste tests of gin, vodka, rum, brandy and more, plus gift guides like the best letterbox gifts to order online.

One of the world's most recognisable whiskey brands. Jack Daniel's have an expansive collection on offer, their single-barrel expression is an inexpensive and thoughtful gift for the JD lover in your life. A full-bodied whiskey with plenty of spicy rye balanced against honey and cereal. One for the Jack and Coke drinker, this is a versatile expression that will see them gradually wean off the mixer.

A scotch that packs in spice and sea spray. Pulteney is an environmentally conscious distillery based in the Scottish coastal town of Wick. Its whiskies are unmistakably born at sea; they burst with salty sea air and the bracing freshness that comes as a result. Its 15-year-old expression is no exception; salinity is balanced with delicate vanilla and warming spices, matched by sweet toffee and light floral flavours. A whisky bursting with character and flavour. Buy this bottle for the whisky drinking eco-warrior in your circle.

Bruichladdich creates some really fantastic expressions focused on the flavors of the barley used to make it. I love sharing these, especially with beer enthusiasts or other distillers, because they showcase the grain in such an elegant way. One of its best and most giftable is Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie.

I think the key to gifting scotch is to not gift something completely polarizing. I like heavily peated smoky whisky, though your friends may be on the entry-level side of tasting scotch. I go with something I love that is also approachable. Aberfeldy 12 fits that bill well.

The briny coastal lineup of Old Pulteney, out of the northern town of Wick, will always be my standard as it brings me right back to my previous career as a commercial salmon gillnetter. Giving away a bottle of their 15-year-old scotch is like giving away a part of my past.

Glenfarclas is one of the few remaining family owned and operated distilleries in all of Scotland. Its core line-up is packaged without fuss or frills, making them a great value (Glenfarclas 12 is great for those on a budget) and the 17 year just gets it right. Matured exclusively in ex-Oloroso sherry casks, this has big butterscotch and sherried fruit, mix with a little peat smoke for an easy-drinking, reliable Scotch.

These large cubes are the ideal cube size for scotch whiskies. Just like the Death Star cubes, these keep your drinks cool without diluting them. Typically, large ice trays are 2 inches in diameter, but these are 2.25 inch cubes. Each is made from a durable BPA-free silicone, free from harmful chemicals and plastics.

If your scotch-loving friend also loves coffee, this is the gift for them. The coffee is Colombia Single Origin, medium roasted, and from the Narinño region aged in used Scotch whiskey barrels combined with milk, chocolate, raspberry, honey, and the pecan/nutty notes of the single-origin coffee. The result of this combination is a smooth tasting profile.

Board games + scotch: sign me up! Players assume roles of distillers of various liquors and their success is determined by a roll of the dice and strategy. This pairs well with a bottle of scotch on standby, especially to celebrate the winner.

What good would an article about scotch gifts be without a box of dark chocolates? Chocolate and scotch pair well together because of their similar flavor profile. In Denmark, a famous chocolatier, Anthon Berg, partnered with five famous single malt scotch whiskey brands: the Singleton, Dalwhinnie, Oban, Talisker, and Lagavulin,and are individually wrapped in respective labels.

Peated (smokey) flavor really is the marmite of whisky: people love it or loathe it. If you do not know whether someone likes peated whisky, stay away from anything that tastes like smoke. There are slightly peated whiskies out there which already are a better choice.

I have had the please to visit the distillery that is located in Speyside, Scotland and they were extremely friendly and helpful.

Old Pulteney 12 is a single malt whisky that is bottled at 40% alcohol. It is a widely available whisky that is sold for around $40 and it tastes delicious. Funny enough not many people, even whisky drinkers, know about this whisky, which makes it a great gift for someone who already has been drinking whisky for a while.

This is a great whisky that is not that well known. As a gift, I would recommend to give it to an experienced whisky drinker. The reason why it is on this list is because it an unpeated highland Scotch, which is unusual.

This bottle will cost you around $50 and is bottled at 43% Alcohol By Volume (ABV). From the list up until now, I think this is the whisky that has the highest quality. However, I struggle to tell how expensive a whisky is from the taste, and an absolute beginner would not be able to either. Therefore, I would not gift this whisky to an absolute beginner who has not found his or her preferred taste yet.

In general, when someone mentions they would like whisky as a gift, I would also not buy them something like Jack Daniels or Johnny Walker in general, as chances are they already had these and these bottles are also better suitable to mix with other drinks.

And while picking a favorite spirits category is akin to picking a favorite child, I must admit that Scotch whisky holds a special place in my heart. As a result, that makes this particular gift guide even tougher to create. But choose I did.

Single malt Scotch is superb on its own, while blended Scotch is best suited in cocktail recipes. Earthy and leathery notes accompany the peaty smokiness. Where does that peaty flavor come from, by the way? American and Irish distillers use other substances to dry the malted barley, but Scottish producers stoke the kiln with peat (dried plant matter), which in turn adds robust smokiness to the Scotch.

Tom Hanks in You've Got Mail said it best: "The Godfather is the sum of all wisdom." So, if you've got a friend who pairs every dram of Jameson with a quote from a Corleone, consider this homage to the crime movie classic that's also a pretty solid dad joke.
