There is something simply elegant about a whiskey decanter. While decanters don’t change the taste of your whiskey much (if at all), they’re a fantastic way of showcasing and storing whiskey. They might even help ensure that the whiskey gets consumed regularly.
Because the focus is on appearance, there is no best whiskey decanter to buy. The choice simply depends on what the purchaser is interested in. That being said, engraved whiskey decanters do make particularly good gifts. The engraving can be a way of commemorating special occasions, people or relationships. Besides, alcohol-related gifts are always popular.
Love whiskey? You'll love Flaviar. They are my favorite whiskey of the month club, and I think you'll like them too!

Great Men Smoke Cigars Set
As this Great Men Smoke Cigars Set shows, whiskey decanters can be funny too. In this case, you’ve got the phrase ‘Great Men Like _____ Smoke Cigars’ engraved on the decanter and all of the glasses.

Argos Decanter Set With Wedge Glasses
The decanter in this Argos Decanter Set isn’t that exciting, with a common design and only a single engravable letter. The more interesting aspect is the glasses. These are designed so that you can create a wedge of ice (if you want to) for whiskey serving. That idea is entertaining and nice for something a little out of the box.
Gold Metallic Edge Decanter
Little things often make a large difference. That’s certainly true for these Metallic Edge Decanters. Their main feature is simply the metallic band around the top.

This Round Decanter is yet another visual decanter approach. It can be customized with a monogram and there are multiple styles to choose from. The round style may be a reason to consider the gift. If nothing else, it would be harder to knock over than most other decanters.

This carves out the space around the label, raising the letters above the background. That approach creates a truly unique piece.
2 Side Engraved Whiskey Decanter

Set Of 4 Engraved Scotch Whisky Decanters
