Have Some Fat Trout for Father’s Day

Fat trout
We know that Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away, but here at The Manual, we’re already thinking about Father’s Day. It’s not that we don’t love our mothers (every good man does), but it’s just we know how quickly the time between parental celebrations can pass.

This Father’s Day (June 15 in case you didn’t already know), we recommend buying your old man a bottle of The Fat Trout Scotch Whisky. In our opinion, a good scotch is always a solid gift for a distinguished gentleman, and Fat Trout is no different.

Tabbed with the label “The Sportsman’s Choice”, The Fat Trout is a blended scotch whisky, which means that it goes down with less of the overt (but very often great) burn of a single malt scotch. Plus, The Fat Trout comes with a prestigious pedigree—it is produced in the Speyside Region of Scotland by the world renowned Ian Macleod Distillers. Established in 1933, Ian Macleod is responsible for some of the finest scotches in the world, including Glengoyne Highland Single Malt.

You might ask, “But what if my dad isn’t a huge scotch fan?” But that’s just silly. In our opinion, all men are scotch fans whether they know it or not. The Fat Trout is the perfect scotch to ease your dad into the world of wonderful, peaty, smoky flavor. Its blend of thirty different single malts makes for a purely enjoyable drinking experience for even the most reluctant scotch drinker.

The Fat Trout is the ideal sipping whisky for sitting on the dock or on the beach and casting a few lines into the water.  So, in the end, you give your dad two gifts on Father’s Day: a bottle of smooth scotch and a day of fishing together. That sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
