This is not the amaretto of the scanky commercials. This is the amaretto of cookies! The cookies! If you haven't had them, they'd be a good gift too. This amaretto is super delicious in hot orange spice tea with a splash of milk. It's nice and warming on a winters night.
I don't really drink whiskey. I like it occasionally in mixed drinks, but my husbands taste in good whiskey makes me never want to tarnish it's flavor with anything. Frankly, good whiskey is wasted on me. But if you are looking for something to give a whiskey lover, my husband says this one is a favorite gift. He usually gives someone a bottle of Elijah Craig once a year. And the bottle is pretty, no?
* none of these are actual gifts this year, so I'm not giving anything away, yet.
** is hell classy?
