Does anyone have any suggestions as to something I can get him. There is supposed to be a tasting going on on May 30th in Cranston, RI (we live in RI) that I am trying to get more information about, but have been unsucessful.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
Do you know his preference? There are lots of whisky styles (scotch / bourbon, smokey, sweet, peaty, sherried...) and it's really difficult to give suggestions if we don't know at least a direction.
Also, a price range could help.

Just a thought!
Large ring gauge (Canonazo): A bottle of Aberlour a'bunadh and some Cohiba Siglo VIs
Small ring gauge (Palmita): A bottle of Lagavulin Distillers Edition and some La Gloria Cubana Medaille d'Or No.4s
Large format (Prominente): A bottle of the best Ardbeg you can lay your hands on (in my case, the 1977) and some Ramon Allones Gigantes
For me, these combinations have all proved quite outstanding.
I know there is a liquor store in East Providence with a great selection of whisky...the name of it escapes me at the moment. It would probably be a good place to browse and get advice.

Some reasonably fine alternatives, then...
Arturo Fuente Opus X Power Rangers matched with a densely sherried Highland malt such as some of the Mortlach issues or the aforementioned Aberlour a'bunadh.
Carlos ToraÃ±o Signature Collection Toros. These really need an exceptionally enlivening pour alongside them. Think Ardbeg, or perhaps a cask strength Lagavulin or Laphroaig.
Carlos ToraÃ±o Tribute Churchill with a balanced, complex Highland whisky. The new Longmorn 16 Year Old (48%ABV) immediately springs to mind.
Oliva Master Blends Torpedo. Booker's Bourbon works wonders with this one.
Another pair of cigars worthy of attention comprises Perdomo's Estate SelecciÃ³n Vintage 1991 Regente and Padron's Serie 1964 Anniversario Imperial (the latter of which had been mentioned previously). These two are perfectly balanced in terms of their flavour profiles, and would go well with a complex, broad taste spectrum Highland malt. Glenlivet Cask Strength NÃ durra maybe?
