Present idea - budget €100

    I have an old friend that I used to buy a bottle of booze for every xmas. I am going to start again this year, and want to get him something interesting. He is a proper food, wine and drink expert, and I am not, but I try and get something he might not otherwise have, and maybe something christmassy.

    10 years ago I got a Flor de Cana 18 or 21 year old from Celtic Whiskey Shop, and the next year got him Green Spot whiskey from Mitchells. Another year I got Lustau something (not sherry, it might have been a port or brandy or something which used Lustau barrels), again from Mitchells. A few years ago I got him a Pineau de Charentes, on the basis that I was broke, and it was still the kind of thing he wouldn't buy himself. A couple of years I got different ports. All went down well (I helped him with the rum).

    Any ideas? Budget approx €100, and will be shopping in Dublin city centre. I'd prefer one decent bottle, but might consider a tasting pack of some kind, and would tend towards the classic rather than the willfully obscure.
