Forget the tinsel, mistletoe and dreidels; it wouldn't be the holidays without a glass of Scotch. The delicious whisky is, of course, Scotland's thoughtful gift to the world. But with an unprecedented selection of bottles on store shelves, how do you find a great present? To help you out, we asked Mike Ryan, head bartender at Chicago's Sable Kitchen & Bar (which offers more than 180 different single malts and blends), and Ethan Kelley, formerly of New York City's Brandy Library (which stocks more than 350 Scotches), for some of their favorites.
