​Top 5 Whiskeys for your Dad this Father’s Day

Posted on

Father’s Day doesn’t usually require much thought or effort. Especially compared to Mother’s day. Dads generally aren’t a picky bunch, and a nice whiskey is normally the perfect gift.

But what to get him? A bourbon or a scotch? Blended or single malt? Grain, Rye, Corn or even a Whiskey from the New World? Luckily for you, we’ve done the hard part. Here’s Hops & Barley’s Top 5 Whiskeys to get your dad for Sunday.

  • 1. Peaky Blinders Irish Whiskey

There’s a lot going for the Peaky Blinders Irish Whiskey. Gold Medal Winner - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018 and produced by the famous Sadler family in the ‘Black country’, Peaky Blinders is a fantastic blended Irish whiskey that lends its name to the Birmingham street gang and the hugely popular TV show.

It’s 70cl at 40% and a classic whiskey to sit down and enjoy. Currently on offer for £21.95, you’re not going to break the bank either.

  • 2. Old Pultney 12yr Peated Whisky

A delicious Highland dram from Old Pultney, this 17 year old single malt is comprised of 90% refill bourbon casks with the remainder being from oloroso casks. You and your dad can expect to find lovely sweet aromas of butterscotch, honey and chocolate, with some faint salt and oak spice on the palate.

It’s a delicious, delectable and at £31.95 it’s a great treat your dad is sure to enjoy.

  • 3. Four Roses Original Bourbon

A classic Kentucky State Bourbon Whiskey. Four Roses is aged for six years with a process that dates back to the late nineteenth century.

This is a versatile bourbon that’s great for mixers and can be sipped alone pleasantly. You can expect hints of pear and mild citrus flavours that are by no means overpowering. It’s £25.25 at a price that is well-worth the experience, flavour and quality.

  • 4. Pogues Irish Whiskey

For most people, the Pogues means singing Fairy tale in New York on Christmas Eve and only remembering that line everybody loves to sing.

But for the Whiskey community the Pogues also means a superb, triple-distilled Irish blended whiskey that pays homage to the bands cult status.

This multiple award winning whiskey has seemingly came out of nowhere to gold medallists in the San Francisco Spirits Competition 2017.

It’s £25.95 and a simple but thoughtful gift that blends nostalgia with whiskey. And who can say no to that?

  • 5. Stagg Junior Bourbon Whiskey 66.0

The real question is: how much do you want to spend? On offer at £72.95, Stagg Bourbon can help answer that question.

Stagg is arguably the best whiskey company in the world, with some of their products climbing into the thousands of pounds. They say no whiskey drinker’s palate is complete without tasting Stagg and their Junior selection is the perfect introduction to the brand.

If your dad is a bourbon drinker, and you want him to have a real treat this father’s day, then make sure to get it while the offer is available for Hops. We’re sure you won’t regret.

That’s our top 5 whiskeys that we’ve compiled. But that’s far from the only products we have available.

Check out our whiskey selection and find your inspiration for father’s day.

And who says you have to get whiskey? Last Saturday was International Gin Day and we’ve compiled a great selection of gins from across the world and their all easily found on our website.

Make sure you check it out, and have a happy father’s day!
