Here are some of our favourite drams to keep your dad in the Father's Day spirit!
1. Best Premium Single Malt Whisky
Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Full of warmth, our top pick is this elegant but full-bodied whisky, which has a long and satisfying finish.
We adore how the warm spices mix with smooth chocolate covered raisins, honeycomb, and caramel toffee for a deliciously sweet, sherry flavoured taste.
Glenmorangie Lasanta is aged in sherry casks, which is where the sweet notes in the flavour profile come from.

3. Best Bourbon Whiskey
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon is a type of American whiskey made primarily from corn. Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select is a small-batch, straight bourbon made on Kentucky's oldest distillery site.
We love the complex aromas of dried fruit, vanilla, and tobacco spice, followed by the flavours of toffee and spice with a long, warming finish.

4. Best Whisky Liqueur
Glayva Blended Scotch Whisky Liqueur
We love Glayva's deep golden colour and distinctive flavour, which comes from a blend of aged Scotch whiskies, spices, Mediterranean tangerines, cinnamon, almonds, and honey.
