Dennis Fraley: Give dad a good bottle of bourbon
Father’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to show your love for dad than with a good bottle of bourbon? After all, he deserves a little something special for all the hard work he puts in year-round.
But with so many options out there, it can be overwhelming to pick the right bottle. That’s where I come in. As a bourbon enthusiast, I’ve put together a list of some of the best bourbons to give as gifts this Father’s Day.
The best bourbons for Father’s Day
1. Blanton’s Original Single Barrel
This smooth, sweet bourbon is a crowd-pleaser. Its unique bottle design and distinct flavor make it a top pick for gift-giving. Plus, the story behind the horse racing-themed bottle is sure to impress dad.
2. Booker’s Bourbon
For the dad who loves a good, strong bourbon, Booker’s is the way to go. This high-proof bourbon packs a punch, but the complexity of its flavor makes it a great sipping whiskey. Plus, the limited edition releases make for a special gift.
3. Angel’s Envy
This smooth, easy-drinking bourbon is perfect for the dad who’s just starting to get into bourbon. Its unique finishing process in port wine barrels gives it a distinct flavor that’s sure to impress. And the beautiful bottle design makes for a great display piece.
4. Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye
If dad’s a fan of rye whiskey, look no further than Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye. Its blend of rye, port, and sherry create a complex flavor that’s perfect for sipping. Plus, the dark, sophisticated bottle design makes for a great addition to any whiskey collection.
No matter which bourbon you choose, giving dad a bottle of his favorite whiskey shows him how much you care. And who knows, maybe he’ll even share a glass with you.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
