I agree with most of the above, but also would like to recommend Caol Ila 12 year old. Beautifully smooth and drinkable but with a nice smoke level. Also Lagavulin Distillers edition which has a little more sweetness than the Lagavulin 16 year old, and also the Talisker Distillers edition, which is one of my all time favourites!
I enjoy Ardbeg's, but find them all very savoury with little sweetness, and maybe a bit much for a Bowmore lover.
