GIFTS FOR DAD: SCOTCH EDITION!

GIFTS FOR DAD: SCOTCH EDITION!


As a sip and as a gift, Scotch whisky remains a class act. Here's a few of our faves, perfect for dads - and daddies - as presented by A Certain Current Reigning Internet Daddy. (Also perfect home bar additions for the refined drinker that is, in fact, their own daddy.)

Current picks from the remote rugged isle of Islay, a small island off the southern coast of Scotland that is home to just eight distilleries and known for bold, peated whiskies. (Peat is formed by the decomposition of organic material such as heather, mosses, and grasses, which turn into bogs, and Islay is covered with peat made of mostly sphagnum moss. This peat is often used to fuel the fire in the malting process for single malts, resulting in smoky-tasting expressions.) 

Port Askaig 8 Year Islay Single Malt - A perfect intro to this famed isle’s signature style of single malts, with ample peatiness elegantly balanced by notes of citrus, brown sugar, baking spice and a stony minerality.

Kilchoman “Sanaig” Islay Single Malt - Named after an inlet on Islay’s craggy Atlantic coast, Sanaig is a vatting of both sherry and bourbon casks. The high proportion of Oloroso sherry influence adds a balance of dried fruits and spices to classic Kilchoman citrus sweetness and peat smoke character.

 

Laphroaig Select Islay Single Malt - A hand-selected blend of single malts from five different casks, including Oloroso sherry first-fill ex-Bourbon quarter casks and Pedro Ximenez sherry hogsheads at different levels of maturation. Finished in virgin American oak barrels – a rare wood source for Scotch whisky.The peaty smoke is laid back with notes of seaweed and rugged ocean air - an easy, breezy yet complex introduction to the Laphroaig house style.

Lagavulin 8 Year Islay Single Malt - Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin! Light-bodied but big on fragrant, tea-scented smoke and maritime vibes. Add a drop of water to unlock some serious Islay magic.

 

Ardbeg 10 Year Islay Single Malt - Revered as one of the peatiest, smokiest and most complex single malts from Islay, the fireside pop is perfectly balanced by the natural sweetness of the malt.
 
The Macallan, 12 Years Old Double Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky - A non-Islay bonus track! Hailing from Speyside in the northeast of Scotland, The Macallan Distillery is a perennial classic, renowned for their meticulous craftsmanship and top-notch oak cask sourcing, largely from the Sherry region of Spain.

Happy Father's Day!
