Whiskey casked in 1975


    I'm looking to buy my old man a whiskey casked in 1975 for fathers day.

    Does anyone know where i can pick up a decent single malted whiskey casked in that year ? obviously if anyone knows of any internet offer or big discounts that would be great.

    Cheers for anyones help


    Be honest with you mate, a 35 (unusual) year old whiskey would cost you anything from £500+

    There are plenty of good Single Malts out there depends what you are looking for, you are more likely to find a 30 year than a 35 year old but your still talking big dollar.

    Which whiskies does he generally drink? Islay, Speyside etc? Any of his favorite brands you can give us a clue on to try and narrow down your search?

    He doesnt really mind what he drinks as he likes a change, he doesnt really have a favourite brand. The only real stipulation he has is that its a single malt and it from a cask.

    ive had a quick look myself. Can you explain why one is much cheaper that the other and are these both pants whiskys or not ?…spx…spx

    cheers for any help you can give with this as i'm not a whisky drinker.

    I'd ring up the shop in London and ask for their advice. I've been to the shop a few years back and found them very knowledgeable and helpful, you can't do any woise than ask.

    In my opinion, unless your Dad is a real whiskey expert, I'd buy the cheaper bottle. It all tastes the same when coke is added!!!
    (An old pugw$sh family joke when I bought my uncle a very expensive bottle of XO Cognac and he helped himself to a large glass, poured in a decent measure, tossed in a few ice clubs a slice of lemon and topped it off with diet coke! When he wasn't looking I poured the bottle contents into a decanter and topped the bottle up with Sainsburys French Brandy, if you are reading sorry Uncle Dave!))

    Does your dad have a copy of 'The Whisky Bible' by Jim Murray? Definitely worth getting a hold of just for the descriptions of what each brand is like, but there's lots of other info on some of the minor brands so it could help you make a decision.

    It might be worth having a look here
