Difficult to give recommendations without knowing the prefered style of your friend.
Does he prefer a smoky island style or a highland style with less smoke ?
From the 30 year perspective, a Highland-Park 30 or a Brora 30 year would fit. Unfortunately those are hard to find and extremely expensive (like >300$)
My recommendation would be 'Ardbeg Renaissance', a brandnew bottling of Ardbeg, so it is unlikely your friend already has it in his collection.
Ardbeg Renaissance is below 100 $
