Clyde May’s new 9-year cask strength whiskey looks like a real keeper. It’s a follow-up to last year’s 8-year cask strength that sold out in months and earned a gold medal in the 2016 New York World Wine and Spirits competition. This year’s brew looks to be just as good, if not better. At 117 proof, this isn’t for the faint of heart, but Clyde May’s has a knack for making high proof premium hooch. It’s on shelves in select stores now so you can get Dad (or yourself) something he’ll actually want. Finishing it in the Alabama style helps tame the beast. You can taste for yourself for around $100.
