New Whiskies For Discerning Dads This Father’s Day

Food & Drink

As we head into Father’s Day this weekend, one of the most popular gifts is a bottle of premium whisky that can be enjoyed long after the day itself. Not only does it taste good to the astute drinker, but the presentation from bottle to packaging also goes a long way in gifting something that can be artistic, memorable and on display for years. However, with such a wide selection out there, many don’t know where to start. To assist, here is a selection of recently-launched expressions perfect for the discerning dad this Father’s Day. There’s also a unique tasting set for those looking for something a bit special on a reasonable budget.

Jura 21 Year Old Tide

Jura 21 Year Old Tide 

A new expression from Jura aged in both American ex-bourbon barrels and American virgin oak. It’s got a fun, spicy character, and is part of the new Aged Vintage series from the distillery.

Kilchoman STR Cask

Kilchoman STR Cask Matured

A relatively limited outturn, Kilchoman is an Islay distillery that people love.

The Perspective Series

The Perspective Series 35 Year Old – Berry Bros. & Rudd 

This bottle celebrates the work of Scottish photographer Lindsay Robertson. The packaging is very elegant and the whisky is delicious. A blended Scotch, rather than a single malt, it’s a good mix of robust fruit and creamy grain. Plus, it definitely looks the part as a gift.

Macallan Masters of Photography Magnum Edition

The ultimate gift for a whisky fan – and highly collectable.

The whisky comes from eight casks, including a ‘spicy’ cask, a classic cask, a European red wine cask, a first fill American barrel and a cask ‘of age’.
