12 whiskies to buy your golfer dad for Father’s Day

These whiskeys work on and off the course.

Whiskey, like golf, is not something I’m a professional at. But that’s ok. You probably aren’t either, and we can enjoy it all the same. Whiskey is a relatively new passion of mine, and I’m far short of being an expert, but here’s a few whiskies I’ve had the pleasure of drinking recently, each good enough, in their own way, to be worthy of a gift with Father’s Day just around the corner.

Dewar’s Double Double Aged Blended Scotch Whisky 21 Year

From $49.99
The oldest whiskey I’ve ever tasted doubles as the one ranked No. 2 best whiskey of 2019 by Whiskey Advocate. Spicy cinnamon notes are lathered with rich sherry flavors.

The Clover

$50-$70
This is, perhaps, the perfect whiskey for golfers. The bottle has a picture of Bobby Jones on the bottle, inspired by his tradition of drinking three fingers of whiskey after competition. The catch? You won’t find it in stores, so look for it in a nearby clubhouse and buy your dad a dram after your round together.
