Let me start by saying 'Howdy'. This is my first post, but I am in dire need of some excellent advice.
I need to get a great bottle of bourbon as a gift. A gentleman I know is pretty high up in the ranks at an oil company and was an enormous help in my job search coming out of college. I have just started my job and without him I would probably be making half of what I am now in a job I would hate. Last time I saw him was a couple months ago and he was raving about Pappy Van Winkle 23. He was a scotch man for a long time, but has apparently made the switch to bourbon because of that glass of PVW23. I have spent the last 2 months trying to track down a bottle of PVW23 for him with no luck (I am very wary of purchasing an eBay bottle). I am not quite a bourbon idiot, but I am no expert either. What bottle would I be able to acquire in 4 days that would make an impressive gift for this man? I will honestly consider anything under $500. I am located in Houston, TX. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
As far as my own Bourbon is concerned, I've been sipping on a bottle of Jefferson Presidential Select 18 and Four Roses Single Barrel in between a few scotch favorites.
