Gwalarn (meaning North West Wind)

Origin: France

RRP: £35.99

Why Dads Would Like: 

For something a bit different we recommend this Celtic whisky from Brittany in France. The nose is rich and opulent with the first powerful notes of grain and slight peat giving way to an aromatic palette combining the sweetness of vanilla, the complexity of leather and smoky tobacco, and some honey. In the mouth, the honey extends supported by slight peat and saline notes with aromas of gingerbread combined with flavours of candied fruit. Great with oysters and seafood.

Sagamore Spirit – Double Oak Rye

Origin: Baltimore, Maryland, USA

RRP: £69

Why Dads Would Like: This is a fantastic example of a Baltimore rye, slightly sweeter than other rye’s with a higher corn content from a brand that is fast becoming popular in the UK last April this rye won a Master of Category medal in the UK in the American whisky category at The Drinks Business & Spirits Business Spring Blind Tasting. The secret to this Double Oak Rye is 18-months of extended ageing time in toasted wave stave barrels, making this whiskey at least seven years old. Delightful notes of caramel, honey, hazelnut, and pecan explode on the palate.
