The perfect whiskey gifts could be their next go-to glass or a set of cigars to enjoy with their juice. What's more, these gifts for whiskey lovers last way longer than however many pours you can get from a bottle of whiskey. Whether they're a bourbon fanatic or a scotch stan or whatever's in between, your whiskey-loving friend will equally love whatever you buy them from this list.
