With Father’s Day right around the corner, we know you are probably working on a gift guide and wanted to send over some great whiskies for the big day next month. Whether your readers are prepared to go big or need an affordable idea this year, the spirits below are sure to be a hit with dear old dad.
Barterhouse Whiskey is a perfect top-shelf option. Beginning with a soft and elegant nose reminiscent of warm spice, biscuit and buttercream, Barterhouse Whiskey pays off cunningly with a mellow taste of roasted grains and charred oak. This limited-release whisky runs for about $75. On the flip side, George Dickel No. 12 is an award-winning Tennessee whisky that won’t stress your readers’ wallets at $25.
If dad isn’t a whisky drinker, you can grab him the new, limited edition Captain Morgan 1671 Commemorative Blend. Finished through Spanish Oak, the commemorative blend contains palatable elements derived from the type of barrels that were believed to have been on board The Satisfaction.
