A nice bottle of Lagavulin 16 year old single malt with some nifty 'rocker' glasses (so your glass can be as tipsy as you are). I haven't tried it out, yet.
You'll hate it. Honest. If you need help disposing of it, please let me know and I'll pass on my postal address.
Okay, okay, it's my very favourite single malt. I also can't afford to drink it very often.
The kit also came with some 'whisky stones' to use instead of ice - I don't drink my scotch with ice, but it'll be interesting to try with the stones.
You should always add a tiny splash of water to most decent whiskies -- it opens up the flavours no end. (But stop adding water before you've seen it splash.) Ideally, water from the home of the relevant place -- but some of those Scottish islands are quite a hefty trip. And yes, ice is generally a mistake, as it kills the flavours just as neatly as chilling cheap wine does. (There are people who suggest that Jack Daniels only manages to be popular because most people drink it over ice. I, of course, am far too diplomatic to hold such a view.)
Trying to be serious for a moment: Talisker (which is also an excellent single malt) is perfectly fine and if you like it, you'll probably find Lagavulin completely acceptable at the very least and one to never deviate from again at best
It's very smoky/peaty and definitely not a malt to rush -- but then, which of them are?
My wife organised Christmas presents for some of the people she works with. She found out their delivery driver likes Glenfiddich, so she bought him a sampler pack of 3 5cl bottles -- one of which was an eighteen year-old. Glenfiddich is pretty ordinary, as single malts go, but I did my best to steal the 18-y-o out of the box before she wrapped it. (Sadly, I was spotted.) They always say that that's the age where ordinary stops and spectacular starts...
