Whisky or Cognac gift recommendation Needed

jaykayen | Nov 24, 2009 02:41 PM

The gift receiver has a nice collection of intro Scotches. He also drinks blended whisky frequently, like Chivas and Jameson.

He likes the Balvenie DoubleWood. Lately, his favorite is Glenlivet French Oak (12 or 15 year designation, I'm not sure.) I found the Glenlivet French Oak to be very much like Cognac, so that is why I'm also looking for a Cognac recommendation, even though he is not a Cognac drinker. I am very familiar with Martell Cordon Bleu, but that is the only one, and I'm not very knowledgeable about the other houses' (cheaper) offerings.

I would like to spend no more than $50.
