Thanks again for all these suggestions. My taste for single malts has been evolving. I recently had Laphroaig once again and this time around (about a year 1/2 after the last time I tried it) I found it to be one of my favorites.
I come to you all again, as I will be attending a dinner/drinks event with the following list. There are several I am yet to try and would like to sample 1-2 for the night. If anybody would mind recommending or at least commenting on the following, it'd be greatly appreciated.
They also have Macallan, Laphroaig, Glenlivet, and Glenfiddich (however I have tried all of these, and happen to have two of these handy at my house).
From the above reviews Talisker and Balvenie seem to be hits. I sampled a Dalmore 12 a while back and remember liking it as well. As for Oban and Glenkinchie I know nothing about them.
