Beist - I have to admit it would be pretty hard for me to to narrow down one whisky as the best I've ever tasted. However, I can tell you my "wow" first impressions of many whiskies include: Macallan Cask Strength, Glenomrangie D'Or, Balvenie Portwood 21 yo, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Johnnie Walker Gold Label, Macallan 18 yo, Glenfiddich 15 yo (Solera), Aberlour A'Bunadh, Dalmore 15 yo and Glenrothes Vintage 1985.
nitehawk55 - I also enjoy Highland Park 12 yo - and love that it's reasonably priced just like Strathisla 12 yo! Have a few drops left in my Strathisla bottle, may toast to you tonight! I'll see if I can find out what the deal is regarding availability in Ontario.
