The Exact Bottle of Booze to Get Your Exact Dad On Father's Day
By: Moiz Ali
Dads are notoriously impossible to shop for, unless you buy yours a tie, which is perfect, because dads wear ties. Holy crap: just get him a tie!! Man, that was easy.
Or, if your dad is crazy and actually hates ties, booze is good too. We asked Moiz Ali, Professional Person Who Knows Everything About Booze from Caskers.com, to tell you exactly what you should get for your father-person, based on what you know he already likes.
If your dad loves 25-year-olds
Highland Park 25 Year Old Single Malt
Moiz says: Introducing one of the only twenty-somethings you can buy your dad that won’t upset your mom. Highland Park 25 Year Old was the first whisky ever awarded 100 points — a perfect score, suck it Nadia — at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Dad will probably have a “look-but-don’t-touch” policy with this one too.
If your dad wears a suit to work everyday
Hillrock Solera-Aged Bourbon
Moiz says: If Pops is rocking a tie to work or a sport coat to dinner, then get him this bourbon, because it’s, well, classy as hell. Hillrock is the world’s first solera-aged bourbon and is crafted by Dave Pickerell, who was previously the master distiller at Maker’s Mark for 14 years. Named one of the Top 50 Spirits of 2013 by Wine Enthusiast, it’s a must for anyone who throws himself into a Zegna every morning just so you could go to DeVry.
