Hopefully dad appreciates you just the way you are, but these items can’t hurt in helping him love you just a little bit more …
Highland Park 50
With only 275 bottles produced, this prestigious edition is set to become an exclusive collectors’ item.
Bottled at 44.8% ABV, Highland Park 50 Years Old is a vatting of five refill oak casks distilled in 1960. This higher proof brings out richness of this special whisky.
Each bottle is unique, encased a cage of hand-crafted sterling silver created by Scottish jewelry designer Maeve Gillies. The design was inspired by Orkney’s elemental forces and features a single piece of Orkney sandstone and a hand-carved Highland Park amulet. Inside the bottle, lies a Sterling silver replica of the St Magnus rose window which is revealed over time as the whisky is enjoyed.
A perfect gift for the Dad who has everything. Only $17,500
Drinks by the Dram
A little more affordable comes Drinks by the Dram, from Master of Malt. It’s a whisky tasting in a box, delivered right to Dad’s door. Choose samples from Master of Malt’s huge selection of rare whiskys.
What you get are are 1 oz. (30ml) samples, sealed in wax and individually labeled. 5 samples makes a very nice flight. Dad can check the website for more information about the whiskys to be enjoyed.
Now if they just had the Highland Park 50. They do have samples of Highland Park 40 and 1968!

No idea how much this costs, but it has to be worth it! Any Dad could geek out with this bar fashioned from a cowling that housed a Pratt & Whitney jet engine that powered a Boeing 747 .
