The son want to give him a birthday single malt not an everyday one that is why he asked the "experts". If he wanted to buy him what he already has he would , he wouldn't ask anyone.
I guess my earlier message was misinterpreted. I don't believe anyone was forcing this gentleman into buying a specific whisky. On the other hand, I believe several responses were giving no more consideration other than naming their personal favorite dram. That said, I have no problem with personal opinion. My first thread I started was "Single Malt Shootout." All responses were based on opinion, which is what I wanted. I had many great answers, including one from Drakoskl, and I appreciate. My answer above was just yet another suggestion (by spending time with his father). Once again, I apologize for any confusion.
