Johnnie Walker Platinum Scotch Whiskey

When it comes to Scotch whiskies, Johnnie Walker sits in the company of the most well known and best distributed in the world. To fit this description, they have a nice collection of options. Johnnie Walker Platinum ($110) falls in between Blue and Gold in their line, and is the latest release from the Scottish master blenders. Platinum was inspired by the Walker family's tradition of crafting private blends for company directors and special occasions. It was crafted from single malt and grain whiskies and is an incredibly smooth sipper with the subtle addition of the trademark Johnnie Walker smokiness. At 18 years old, it's a mature, exceptional blend worthy of your next significant event.

  • Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey

    Our third president, Thomas Jefferson, played a big role in the repeal of an unpopular whiskey tax back in 1801, so it's no surprise that his face is emblazoned on bottles of bourbon and rye whiskey. Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey ($33) not only borrows his name and face, but boasts a taste that's impressive as well. It's aged longer than most Ryes at 10 years, and is one of only four that can claim to be 100% Rye. It also has dibs on a sweet but spicy taste with a very smooth finish. A presidential addition to any well rounded liquor collection.

  • Shipwreck Whiskey

    It's such a catchy name that we're surprised no one's using it commercially, but these two bottles of Shipwreck Whiskey ($TBA; auction) are actually very rare. They were among eight bottles recovered from the SS Politician, an 8,000-ton cargo ship that sank off the coast of Scotland in 1941, bound for Jamaica and New Orleans with 28,000 cases of whiskey. Bottled by W & A Gilbey with an original cork and wax sealed by Christies, you can be sure it'll be one of the more interesting drinks you can take.
