FATHER’S DAY WHISKY WISH LIST
Whisky is a popular choice for Dads across the country on Father’s Day, and whether they’re new to the “water of life” or they’re a devoted fan there’s definitely something for everyone. Take a look at our wish list of award-winning whiskies, to give you inspiration for the perfect gift this Father’s Day.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old
For something new to treat your dad with, The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is exclusively sherry seasoned and delivers a distinct American oak style, reflecting a perfect harmony of flavours and natural colour. The delicate flavour of American oak – vanilla, citrus and light oak – rises in prominence as the traditional Macallan character of rich fruit, sherry and wood spice affords a familiar back drop. This is a flavour combination which is guaranteed until the very last drop. The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is available in specialist whisky retailers including The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt (RRP £55). www.themacallan.com
