Do you want to a great scotch for Father's Day, but you aren't sure where to start?
Scotch expert David Michiels has a few handy tips for picking out the perfect Father's Day scotch.
Go with a more neutral scotch like the Auchentoshan Three Wood Fancy Cask Finish ($75.99), or the Tomatin Willow Park Exclusive 20 year Single Cask ($199.99).
Scotch that is finished in a bourbon cask usually has a short finish and vanilla notes - try a Balvenie 12 year, Double Wood, Mixed Cask Finish ($76.99). Scotch that is finished in a sherry cask usually has a long finish and dried fruit notes.
If you really want a scotch that was finished in a sherry cask, pick a scotch that wasn't finished for very long in a sherry cask - you'll get a shorter finish that way (again, better for summer.)
Don't shop by age, price, or region - instead, find a taste you (and Dad!) enjoy, and try to find a scotch that fits in that flavour profile.
We have a great selection of scotches for every price range - we'll help you pick a scotch that will be opened and enjoyed!

We are expecting a huge shipment of Bruichladdich for this weekend - they have a great selection of scotches that will be fantastic for Father's Day.
