When you want to give a gift that is out of the ordinary then you can consider whisky miniature bottles. Miniature whisky bottles are always well received and reflect your own taste and sensibilities. While a lot of people would go in for gifting a regular sized whisky bottle, miniature whisky bottles can give a very eclectic feel to your gift.
You can select your miniature whiskies according to the size of your pocket. However if you want to make your gift truly stand out then you can look at the single malt miniature range. You can make a gift basket that contains single malt scotch whiskies as well. Some of the single malt scotch whiskies that you can get are Glenmorangie Sherry Wood Finish Miniature, Singleton Dufftown Twelve Year Old Miniature, Dalmore Twelve Year Old Miniature, Glenfiddich Fifteen Year Old Miniature, Glenmorangie Ten Year Old Miniature, Laphroaig Ten Year Old Miniature, Glenfiddich Special Reserve, Macallan Ten Year Old Sherry Oak Miniature etc to name just a few.
Each of these miniature whiskies have a story to tell. A great way to make your basket more attractive is by including whiskies from all the whisky producing regions of Scotland. There are five main regions which produce whisky in Scotland. These regions are the Speyside region, the Highland region, the Lowland region, the Island region and the Islay region.
Some of the best selling whiskies come from the Highland region. The whiskies from this region are well balanced with a slight smokiness to it. These whiskies are slightly sweet but are very smooth on the palate. The Speyside whiskies are very similar to the Highland whiskies but are a little sweeter than the Highland counterparts. In fact the Speyside region has the highest concentration of whisky distilleries in the whole of Scotland. Glenmorangie, Glenturret, Singleton, Dalmore, Glenfiddich, Macallan etc are some of the whiskies that are made in these two regions.
The Lowland whiskies are very light and floral in taste and almost have a slightly grassy feel to them. The whiskies that come from the Islay region are very different from the whiskies made in any other part. These whiskies have smokiness as the dominant flavor and are quite strong. This region at one time had some of the most distilleries in Scotland but at present there are only nine distilleries that are operational. While Islay whiskies are mostly string there are some whiskies from this region that are milder in flavor. Usually whiskies from this region are enjoyed by seasoned whisky drinkers. The Island whiskies are again quite light on the palate and have a salty and coastal flavor to it. This could be because of the geographical location of the distilleries in this area.
You can complement your whisky miniature gift set with some accessories as well. Throw in a Cuban cigar and a cutter and your gift will see another level of response. You can also use miniature whisky bottles as an accessory if you want to complement a gift which you don’t want to give alone such as a whisky decanter or a set of whisky glasses.
