And once again this Father’s Day he’ll welcome more socks and ties. But why not give him something to enjoy at his leisure? And be prepared for the big grin that will spread over his face.Canadian Whisky: The Portable Expert is available from book stores in Canada and the U.S., on the worldwide web from, and from for delivery in Canada.
