Mother’s Day has been and gone, but you know what that means – Father’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning!
On June 18th, you can surprise dad with some of the best award-winning whiskies of 2017. SipDark also has an amazing range of accessories for whiskey lovers, from our classic cigar rest to the one of the finest Glencairn glass ranges around.
This year, there are some fantastic award-winning whiskeys. Jim Murray’s World Whiskies of the Year award saw Brooker’s Rye 13-year-old whiskey winning first place. According to Murray, the whiskey offers an intense flavour profile that is balanced out with oak notes. The woody flavour is achieved thanks to the long ageing process.
It has a dark amber color, and its spicy notes from the uncut rye make it a really interesting drink. It’s also 68.1% alcohol and full of intense flavors, making it a real treat for dad on Father’s Day.
The World Whiskies Awards 2017 have also announced their big winners, with international whiskies performing well. Japan took the World’s Best Grain spot, with a 25-year-old small batch whiskey by the name of Fuji-Gotemba Single Grain. If dad likes rye, then the A.D. Las Secale Straight Rye Bottled in Bond might be more suitable – it’s an American whiskey, and ideal for anyone who prefers a flavour-rich beverage.
Canada also performed well with their own limited release. The J.P. Wiser’s Dissertation whiskey won World’s Best Blended Limited Release. If dad prefers British whiskey, then there are multiple options to choose from. Bainbridge won World’s Best Wheat, and Craigellachie 31-Year-Old won the World’s Best Single Malt.
A full list of the World Whiskies Awards winners for 2017 is available here, and it offers some fantastic suggestions that would make Father’s Day special.
