I've got a Balvenie 21 year portwood that I like, so I'm considering Glenmorangie's new port finish Quinta Rubin. I like my GlenMo 10, and I might enjoy this port. Or the Cragganmore's Distiller Edition which is port finished. We've already got enough sherried scotches.
I have the Lagavulin 16 (which is wonderful, smokey, very complex Islay) and the Laphroig 10. The Laphroig ten is one of my favorite whiskies. I'm considering the Ardbeg 10, but I'm wondering if this is just more of the same from the other two Islays. I've tried a few Bowmores and Buchladiach (spelling), and I'm not a fan. What about a Connemara, the peated Irish Whiskey?
Maybe, something unique. I tried the Macallan Fine Oak 10 the other week, and I liked it (sorry folks ) maybe I should try the 15 or 17 FO that have great reps.
Maybe it's time for another Bourbon, a Old Forester's Birthday or Woodford Reserve.

I voted for the Quinta Ruban, one I really enjoyed.
If you are going to try Ardbeg, I'd recommend the Uigeadail. It may be a bit over your price range as it sells in the $79-90 range, but I like it more than the 10, even though I like the 10 alot.
Good Luck and welcome again to the forums.
I see you like Laga 16 (one of my favorites also); I have read some nice things about the Dist. Edition, so that would make a nice addition for you.
It's on my personal list to pick up this week, as the latest edition was just released around here.
Also a plug for Ardbeg 10- just an outstanding ride, and perhaps the perfect winter malt.
I also am a fan of the Macallan Fine Oak line- I know we are in the minority. Rich and sugary malt, nice and heavy, about as clean in maltyness as I have found.My only problem is that the 15, which I think is far better then the 12 or the 18 sherry editions, are really not priced in line with other 15 year old malts.
The older Macallan sherried malts that I have tried have been gems- not a fan of their sappyness of their current sherried malts..
