I'm giving a gift of bourbon to a friend for Christmas and I'm trying to decide between a 2011 Stagg and a Col EH Taylor Tornado. Any recommendations?

If the person is casual bourbon drinker give the Tornado. It makes for a good story to go along with the gift. If a bourbon drinker give the Stagg.

I can't argue with Michael's logic..... but was going to say lean towards the Tornado. Stagg is released every year (given it's a limited release) while the Tornado was a one-off that won't ever be repeated.

I agree and think the story of the Tornado works well.

Best regards, Tony

I either give something I know they will like or something hard to get, so both choices would work depending on the recipient.

Can I be your friend? Either one is a great gift!

Just to let you know, he is a bourbon drinker and I gave him a bottle of the 2011 Stagg.

I gifted the Tornado to my dad because it made for a good story. That coupled with his desire to drink lower proof bourbons made it the perfect gift.

100 is "lower proof" for your dad? Sounds like a good man.

Well, I was choosing between Fighting Cock (recipient has fighting cocks), FRSmB and FR1B - all unavailable in Hawaii. I chose the FRSmB when I heard the recipient was a Jonny Walker Black drinker, figuring it would be the smoothest of the bunch.

Just FYI, I saw a bottle of FC at the Ewa Pantry last night. Didn't look at the price I because I was looking for something else but it did catch my eye.

Had to run over and see - yup, $24 for FC103 - darn it! At least I will be able to try the FRSmB without opening one of my remaining two.
