The guide to the whiskeys you should buy your old man for Father’s Day is a men’s lifestyle media trope. I wrote the one for this very site. And while the whiskeys on that list are quality enough gifts and there’s no doubt a whiskey-loving dad will gleefully take a bottle of whiskey they didn’t pay for, it remains a ho-hum, surface-level gift. Running late, you may very well have gone to the liquor store around the corner from your dad’s home and grabbed Laphroaig 10 off the display shelf at the front of the store (in a highly giftable tube, to boot!) and passed it off to him that night. Job done.
