Hennessy and Crown Royal probably already have a place at your dad’s bar. But chances are none of the spirits below do. So treat the old man and expand his palate a little. After all, there’s nothing wrong with a bourbon, tequila, rye whiskey or all three! –ronda racha penrice

Maker’s Mark Cask Strength Bourbon Whisky

Maker's Mark Cask Strength Full Bottle

A new product and just the third ever in the famed Maker’s Mark family released just this year, Cask Strength is exactly what it sounds like. Unfiltered and uncut, the latest from the seventh generation Kentucky distillers is roughly 108-114 proof. Although it’s strong, it’s also smooth and totally worth the $59.99 for the 750 ml bottle if you can find the already popular spirit.

Casa Noble Crystal Tequila

CN Crystal Bottle

Nothing quite says pure like crystal and this pride of Mexico is just that. As a brand, Casa Noble dates back to the late 1700s. Made of 100% blue agave, the multiple award-winning tequila is triple distilled for purity and quality and then casked in white French oak barrels. As an added bonus, it’s also certified organic, with a standard 750 ml bottle retailing for $39.99.

Rye Templeton Whiskey 

Templeton Rye Bottle

Inspired by the Prohibition-era whiskey made in Iowa that Al Capone reportedly preferred, Templeton Rye has a very interesting backstory. In recent years, the Midwest spirit that came to the market in the 2000s has had its challenges but that’s to be expected of anything associated with Capone right? At any rate, its pleasing taste and interesting bottle is surely something that dad can dig, especially at $39.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
