This gift set works very well in two ways. Firstly, it is really nicely packaged and feels like a 'presentation' gift rather than just three bottles stuck in a cardboard box.
Secondly, and probably more importantly, is that the whiskies here do actually have noticeably distinctive tastes. Personally, I find there is something good in each one but for those who are just getting into whisky it does provide a range for your palette to sample. Also, if you are giving as a gift to someone you know likes whisky but you do not know which bottle to get them then in effect you are getting three attempts rather than one.
I picked up my set in the sale and at that price it is definitely five stars but at the full price it does seem a tad expensive. However, the 57 is very strong so would probably set you back a fair bit so maybe £45 for 60cl (so less than a standard bottle) is probably actually a fair price. So as a gift for someone five stars due to the fact it feels like a proper present; for your own pleasure somewhere between 4 stars and 5 depending on the price you get.
