Glenfiddich 12 is not the smoothest, sweetest whisky in the world, but is not objectionable to most Scotch drinkers. To most tasters, it is neither oaky nor bitter.
You might consider the possibility that malts are simply not for you. More people dislike them than like them. There is nothing wrong with that.
I do hope that you find something you like, but in my humble opinion, it isn't worth forcing the issue.
