What’s the Perfect Gift for Dad? Here’s What We Think
Need a gift for that special someone (could be yourself 😀)??
Father’s Day is coming up and we’re here to help. We know that it’s hard to find that perfect gift for dad. But luckily for you, we know our whisky…. so you’re in safe hands. Also, don’t forget to finish this article because we have a special announcement at the bottom.
So to help you choose, we came up with 3 categories to make things a bit easier: The Experts Picks, Whisky sets, and Other Cool (non-whisky) Gifts for him to enjoy!
So let’s get started.
The Expert’s Picks
These are bottles that we would give to our own fathers. They were chosen by our resident SMPH whisky experts based off of the quality of the whisky and the presentation to go along with it. These are whiskies that any father would be proud to showcase on his shelf or drink on a special occasion!
This single malt whisky is something that you definitely want to have in your collection. The Glenmorangie Signet comes in a beautiful box, packaging, solid heavy cap, and lavish bottle design. It’s one of those bottles that you know is expensive just by looking at it.
However, the design is only half the battle. What makes the Glenmorangie Signet so special is the juice that comes inside.
The Glenmorangie Signet Whisky is so rare that they have to close down the whole distillery for one week every year. They call it the Signet Week and for seven days each year, the Glenmorangie distillery only produces the ‘chocolate malt’ and halts production on all other whiskies, a highly unusual occurrence in the whisky industry.
The Glenmorangie Signet is also the recipient of numerous industry awards such as the: 2016 IWC Whisky of the Year and the 2018 SF Spirits Awards Double Gold Winner. Truly a must-have for any collection!
Dalmore Cigar Malt + RYJ Cuban Cigar
Now this… this is the gift for our cigar-loving dads! If he loves his Cubans, he’s going to love the Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve.
The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve is the perfect accompaniment to the finest cigars. The whisky is aged in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Casks and mixed with a batch in the finest Gonzalez Byass Sherry Casks, previously holding 30 Year Old Matusalem Oloroso Sherry and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques.
What you get is soft vanilla and honey notes, blended with the sweet, dark rich sherry.
For Father’s Day, the Dalmore Cigar Malt comes with a Complimentary RYJ Cuban No. 3 Cigar, which was perfectly paired and selected by the Dalmore experts!
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old + Free Rocks Glass
The Dalwhinnie 15 year old is a highly awarded scotch whisky from the Highland Region and is widely-known for its simple yet crisp characteristics by whisky lovers around the world.
With smoky florals and fruit essences, this bottle will give your palate a nutty vanilla taste, and take you to a long and smooth nutty finish with some hints of smoke.
Getting a 95 rating from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible is not enough for this whisky as it also garnered numerous awards worldwide such as the
- Gold Award for the Single Malt Scotch – 13 to 19 Yrs Category in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013
- Gold award at the The Scotch Whisky Masters (The Spirits Business) 2013 awards for the Highlands & Islands 13-18 yo category.
Makes a perfect dram to have over a nice Father’s Day Dinner.
