Ungrateful entitled prick with his head in the clouds? Or exploited lab rat with legitimate concerns? You make the call!

I'm having trouble dealing with dissatisfaction with my first post-college job, which makes me feel more than a little over-entitled. My frank impression is that the workplace is in shambles and that I'd been lied to in the interview process; more charitably, I'm wondering if perhaps this particular posting just isn't for me. Given the details, what's the best way for me to go about readjusting my mind for the position, readjusting the position for my mind (i.e. closer to what I was told it would be), or giving up the ghost and going for something different?

Going-Away Gift

EmploymentFilter: I'm leaving a professional position tomorrow after eight months and the requisite two weeks' notice. It hasn't been a particularly good match for me (skills, interests, etc...) but my boss has nevertheless been a good guy to work for and has both tried to find ways to use my background and skills, and to give me opportunities to learn more. Once, in passing, he mentioned a bottle of whisky he was about to try. Should I get him one to say "thanks," since I don't think there are any alcohol sensitivity issues? [more inside]
