For the dad who digs metal: The latest limited edition of Blackened ($69.99, 750 milliliters, 90 proof) is inspired by Metallica’s album “Rye the Lightning,” and was created using a sonic enhancement process. Master Distiller Rob Dietrich finished Kentucky straight rye first in Madeira casks, and then in Caribbean rum casks, while “Rye the Lightning” played, and low-hertz frequencies visibly shook the finishing barrels. blackenedwhiskey.com

For the singular dad: Glendalough’s seven-year single malt Mizunara Finish ($99, 750 milliliters) is the first Irish whiskey to use mizunara oak, making it as unique as your dad. The tree, native to Japan, takes 200 years to mature, and doesn’t grow straight, which makes it difficult to form into casks. Whiskey seeps deep into the porous wood, giving it the exotic flavor of sandalwood, woody spice and a fruity finish. glendaloughdistillery.com
