Oban 18 is very nice, but it is almost never my go-to. It's a great intro to good whiskey without resorting to Macallan or Glenlivet.
If you don't like A'bunadh, whiskey probably isn't your drink.
I am settling into a single cask Balvenie 15. At first, I found it too rough and imbalanced. It has grown on me. Of course, I'm half way through the bottle, so there's that.
Favorite right now is Glendronach 21. With the distillery's closing/re-opening, the whiskey is much...
