It depends what area he likes - they all have different tastes, from sweet (lowland) through to almost medicinally peaty (islay).

I like the less peaty, sweeter, smoky whiskies and my personal fav is http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-4688.aspx

If you wanted to go for a "big brand" but not one of the obvious ones I'd go for http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-3506.aspx

That Macallan is very fine indeed. Probably my favourite money:taste single malt.

In return for all of this top Xmas prezzy info you can send me your Horsehide Elmendorf Smiling.

seenmy get yourself down to Royal Mile Whiskies, they have a branch at 3 Bloomsbury Street in London.

If you can find out some names of what your dad already has / likes, they should be able to advise something to his taste. As Toasted said, it depends very much on the area, and whisky drinkers do tend to have favourite areas / tastes.

That Macallan is very good, and easy to drink so is a safe option. It's not a strong enough flavour for me, but is nice.

I'd say Laphroaig is pretty good for a big name brand as well.

Tastes like fucking TCP, not a good gift idea unless they already love it.

he normally has glenfiddich I think,or thats what I can remeber seeing him given in the past as gifts, I would like to get him something a bit more special in terms of not just the average bottle someone would get him from tesco, so andy option sounds a good one..
