This is my first post - so please be gentle!
2 months ago I became a proud father of my baby girl 'Autumn'. As a gift to her I would like to buy a bottle of whisky that was bottled / or 'made' in Oct 2009 (the month of her birth). My plan is to give her this bottle on her 21st birthday.
Hi Saaj, once again congrats from me too. You must be as proud as punch.
Firstly you will not get anything made from October 2009 as explained previously. Whisky needs many years to mature and for most you'd need to wait at 10 years for a good whiskey.
It is also worth knowing you will find it very hard to find something either distilled or bottled on an exact date of the birth also.
The guys suggestion of buying a bottle bottled in 2009 is your best bet.
However I would suggest you bide your time for at least a decade or so before you think about this. Maybe for the time being buy a good bottle of wine next year that will mature over the years but not sure about getting a bottle that will last 18-21 years.
