    Help With a Gift

    I am in search for help in purchasing a great birthday present for my friend, a bourbon enthusiast. He has recently aquired an extensive collection of bourbon and has a very impressive bunker.

    I am not looking to purchase a bottle of bourbon for him (trust me he has enough).

    I am interested in either purchasing a collectable item, nice glasswear, or a good book on bourbon.

    Any suggestions for a gift would be much appreciated.
    If you could please direct me also to where to find such gifts, that would also be helpful.
    I don't really like bourbon, but it's worth it for the dusty hunt.

    Re: Help With a Gift

    A good book? I recommend But Always Fine Bourbon which is a story of the Van Winkle family and their bourbon. It is available at the Buffalo Trace gift shop. http://www.buffalotrace.com/giftshop.asp

    I also recommend Bourbon, Straight which was written by Chuck Cowdery. You can find it on Amazon.com and at http://cowdery.home.netcom.com/bourst.html

    You can't go wrong with either of those books.

    If he prefers to drink from a rocks glass, these are my favorites. They've got a nice heft to them.

    Very nice looking. But at that price I'd sure hate to drop one...

    Thank you all for your ideas.
    Hopefully he likes his birthday present.
