I want to give a holiday gift to a person who controls my grad school grant. He is a good guy and I know he likes Bourbon (I asked). In fact he told me he likes Rye Bourbon. I want to spend about $30 tops. What are your suggestions? A local booze retailer is selling Beam black for $28 per 1.75 bottle and I am thinking about that as the gift but the Rye lead (from his mouth) has made me think. I need help. What are your suggestions?
