OK. Do you like peaty or smoky malts? If so, Talisker 10 is in that range and is great.
If you like a bit of peat but not a lot, snap up a Longrow CV before they disappear.
Otherwise, Springbank 10 is a great all-around whisky, and more in the style of Glenfiddich.
A word of advice: don't get hung up on the age of the whisky--it is not an arbiter of quality or taste. Generally, older whiskies cost more, but that is not necessarily a reflection of quality.
Case in point: Lagavulin's special 12 year-old bottling is younger than their normal 16-year-old, but it is more expensive and (IMO) better.
Best advice I can give: try a lot of different whiskies. If you find one that you love, buy it.
