It’s almost time to give the father of your children or your own dad their special day of celebration love and appreciation! The way to my husbands heart is definitely through his stomach! So for him this Father’s day I am going with what I know he enjoys, food hot off the grill. Read on for The Best Father’s Day Grilling Menu Ideas!
Delicious food straight from the grill accompanies by a good drink make my husband a very happy man! And I get excited because I know I made him happy. It’s a win-win!
As long as I have known my husband he’s always had a thing for food hot off the grill (like the above Grilled Flat Iron Steak) and a good beer. About 5 years ago John became interested in whiskey, scotch whiskey and bourbon. He absolutely loves trying new brands, flavors and varieties. John takes his discovering, tasting and enjoyment more and more seriously and I kinda dig it!
Recently, I was sent a couple of bottles of Scotch Whiskey from Speyburn for him to try out. He was as excited as a kid in a candy store!
The story behind the Speyburn Distillery in Scotland is a cool one. The founder, John Hopkins, in anticipation of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee said he would build a distillery in time for the celebration in 1897. He was true to his word and the first cask was tapped just in time. The story of the distillery and its wares have many interesting twists and turns from there to today. You should give it a read, here.
My husband tasted the Speyburn 10 Year Old Single Malt first. The 10 Year Old Single Malt is not expensive compared to many Scotch Whiskey’s. John says it’s good, and he enjoyed sipping on it. The evidence? The bottle has about 1 pour remaining.
He saved the Speyburn Arranta Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky till second to try and he is smitten and says it’s one he would like to add to his stock for rotation.While he was enjoying it for the second time, he kept muttering “this is good…this is really good”. He says the description on the bottle rings true and that you can really taste the toffee, vanilla and honey. This is a limited batch, so get your hands on a bottle now before its gone. John sure is getting another one or two!
If you have a man in your life that enjoys Scotch-Whiskey (or if you do), pick up a bottle of of Speyburn 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky or Speyburn Arranta Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (or a bottle of both!! Spoil him!) and give it a try. Per my husband…they (or you) won;t be disappointed!
