Wine Gift Idea - Gifts under $50 - Scotch Whisky for a Wine Lover

OK - It's now the last last minute to shop. If you have a wine lover in your life that also enjoys a good Scotch - try Glenmorangie and their "Extra Matured" Whisky.  They take their single malt scotch, and put it in barrels previously used to make wine. This process adds some really interesting flavor notes. Your local liquor shop can help you find the one you want, but the ones I've tried include Whisky that was extra matured in:
  • Sauternes Casks (An unbelievably good dessert wine)
  • Port Casks
  • Sherry Casks (Not the cheap stuff that Grandma drinks - good Spanish Sherry)
  • Super Tuscan Wine (Wine made in the Tuscan region of Italy that brings us Chianti, but the Super Tuscans are made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, etc.)
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
