sazerac 18 is very nice. refined and classy. but if you want something with some oomph and kick, you can also try the thomas h handy.
These will probably be very difficult to get - nearly impossible outside the US. Around here they're on the shelves less than a month out of the year. . . They'd make a great gift, though.
Aside from that, I'd have to agree on the High West ryes. And the standard Sazerac is excellent, but perhaps less gift-y.
