For the perfect Father’s Day for the spirits lover
When it comes to spirits, Father’s Day is often the perfect occasion to give a great bottle as a present. Here are just a few of them, and we’ll be focusing mainly on whiskies.
For the beginner dad
The Macallan 12
The Macallan 12 is the perfect whisky for those just starting out. The Double Cask 12 Years Old is part of the Double Cask range, which combines the classic Macallan style with the characteristic smoothness of American oak. This is a perfectly balanced, full-bodied single malt with flavours of honey, citrus and ginger.
The Dalmore 12
An exceptional single malt matured in ex-bourbon American white oak casks and aged in rare oloroso sherry casks.
Gibson’s Finest rare
While most Canadian whiskies are aged for only three years, Gibson’s Finest Rare is always aged for 12 years to achieve sophisticated character, extraordinary smoothness and exceptional flavour. Its silky smooth taste, balanced by a citric bitterness, makes it the ideal whisky to sip in the garden with your father in summer.
Talisker 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This is the epitome of a coastal single malt. While sipping on this luxurious and rugged single malt, whisky lovers will be able to appreciate it’s made by the sea roots, with a sea-salty nose, spicy complexity, smoky-sweet character and signature peppery finish of Talisker.
For the dad who loves that smoky taste
The Ardbeg TEN Single Malt or the Laphroaig Quarter cask are two good introductions for those who want to start with a peaty taste.
The Dalmore Cigar Malt
Tasted at a The Dalmore event a few weeks ago, it goes perfectly with the finest cigars. This single malt is matured in ex-bourbon American white oak casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry casks and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels.
Highland Park Cask Strength No. 3
This bold third edition of the award-winning series contains a higher proportion of Orkney peated malt than its predecessors, giving it a rich, smoky flavour. A delicious combination of flavours, with notes of charred oak, heather honey, vanilla cream and peat smoke. This liquid truly challenges the norms of whisky consumption.
For the explorer
If your father likes a richer whisky, we suggest Glenfiddich 15 Year Old. This single malt is perfect for sipping neat or in cocktails. With its warm notes of spice and honey, it makes a luxurious pure whisky, but it will also be appreciated in cocktails such as Glenfiddich Gold Rush.
For the connoisseur
The Dalmore Rare & Fine 40 Years Highlands Single Malt
There are occasions that deserve to be marked with something significant. Aged to perfection, The Dalmore Rare & Fine 40-Year-Old Highlands Single Malt is a sparkling single malt whisky unlike any other. It’s full of decadent notes, from the aroma to the finish. The distillates are aged for 30 years in bourbon casks, then transferred to oloroso sherry casks for seven years. They are then finished in first-fill bourbon casks for three years before bottling.
The nose offers spicy, honeyed aromas that awaken the senses, while the palate reveals notes of brioche, gingerbread, honey and a blend of spices. The Dalmore 40-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an elegant, long and warm finish that will have you reaching for that next glass sooner than you think.
Rémy Martin Louis XIII
This marvellous bottle is the expression of Rémy Martin’s work and quality. You’ll be able to taste it at the SAQ de la Montagne on Thursday 15 June between 4 and 7pm, by prior arrangement.
