    Personally I love that B-day bourbon and I agree it's a good choice but for under $30 I'd suggest Buffalo Trace or ERSB.

    btw- The Woodford was my first choice for the scotch drinkers because it's dryer than most bourbons and may be closest to their palate.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    I sometimes find the wheaters remind me of single malts malts that feature a malty center (i.e Scapa, the better Glenlivets, Glengoyne), as opposed to sherry/peat focused whiskies. I really like the Weller 12, the Pappy 10 107, and the Weller 107 in that range (all under), perhaps not the Pappy depending upon where you buy.

    If you were saying they liked JW Blue, then perhaps the EC12. JW blue has a nose to die for (which I find true of the EC 12), but disapoints a bit on the lack of depth on the palate (for the price, for sure).
