Yes, we know your dad would love it even if you gave him just a card and a gift for Father’s Day. But if you really want to share a great bonding moment with your dad, crack open a bottle of whiskey with him. Sit down and get to know more about the man who raised you. He might just surprise you with some of his stories.
We’ve picked out some beautiful bottles of this life-changing elixir to share with dad this Father’s Day.
Jim Beam Black
The double aged bourbon has more flavour than the original and a more refined smoothness thanks to the extra aging. Jim Beam Black is a little higher up than your normal Jim Beam, although, that too would make a good gift for dad.
The Glenlivet – 12 Years
It isn’t the most extravagantly expensive whiskey but Glenlivet delivers what a fine bottle of Scotch is supposed to. After all, they have had 200 years to figure out the process. The name of the game is wood: Glen’s 12-year-old bottle boasts notes of marzipan, hazelnut, and pineapple. It’s a party in your mouth where everyone’s invited..and they’re all bringing friends.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select
Fancier than your normal JD bottle. Each barrel is hand-selected and bottled up to bring you a complex, creamy and robust whiskey, perfect for your dad’s special day
Johnnie Walker Double Black Label
The signature spicy taste of Johnnie will let your dad see that you know your whiskey. Trust us, there won’t be a prouder moment in his life than this one. The whiskey is slightly smoky and miles ahead of the sad excuse for whiskey you used to knock back in college.
The Glenlivet – 15 Years
The 15 year old Glenlivet is a wonderfully smooth Scotch that’s a nice step up from the 12. Partially aged in French Oak casks, the buttery smell and decadent, heavy oak-infused taste makes for a perfect drink to toast your dad with.
Amrut Indian Single Malt Whiskey
Believe it or not, this Indian whiskey is one of the most expensive whiskeys in the world. It’s just what you need to show your dad how much he means to you.
This fine bottle of Irish Whiskey has a full flavour and smooth character. It has the perfect balance of spicy, nutty and vanilla notes with hints of sweet sherry and exceptional smoothness. If your Dad has a fondness for whiskey cocktails, look no further than this exquisite bottle.
Ballantine’s has a number of options ranging from 12 year old to 40 year old. If you have an unlimited budget, we suggest you go for the 40 year old. It might be one of the best your dad has ever tasted.
