I thought of buying him a bottle of the Macallan 20s travel edition, as this is the decade he was born in.
Does anyone have any comments on this bottling and whether it is worth buying?
Michael Jackson scores them all reasonably equally; Jim Murray gave the 1930's a big thumbs up, but was pretty critical of the others.
However, they've been out for some time, and bottlings (particularly from Macallan) have been pretty variable, so don't let an old negative review put you off - chances are, what you purchase today will be very different whisky to what both MJ and JM reviewed.
Personally, I think your grandfather will be thrilled with the bottle and the concept, regardless of the quality of the malt inside.
The Macallan 20's is a quite enjoyable dram in my opinion. Spicy with a lot of sherry and polished oak. Smooth an smoky like the present day macallan 18 1985 (not the fine oak series but the sherry cask edition).
I'm almost sure your granddad will love it.
