Turn things around a little bit. Next time you see your friend, humbly suggest that he open that new bottle over a piece of chocolate cake, or a chocolate mousse -- with you, of course.
A perfect introduction.
When I had the pub it was one of 3 whiskies we'd give to people who wanted to try their first malt. It was a safe bet. It's also the only whisky my non-whisky-drinking friend (who only ever drinks G&T or Sav Blanc) enjoyed with me. So as your friend isn't much of a whisky drinker, it sounds like a good gift for him.

I guess it must have changed over the years - it really was once quite challenging when taken neat.
I have myself given it as presents to friends who are about to try whisky for one of their first times. It has always been appreciated!
Easy drinking honey'd dram. This is an easy graduation to Scotch Single Malts. Nothing but praise for this Highlander.
Honey & a touch of heather Smoke
Very sweet & lightly peated
