I want to try the Glenmorangie 10 next or do you think I should try something different?

The Glenmorangie is a fine whisky with subtle spice and coastal nuances, Irene. But I think you may just have spoiled yourself by trying the Highland Park first.
Some others in a similar regional vein would include Dalmore (usually a good buy), Old Pulteney (approachable, lively and balanced) and Clynelish (one of my personal favourites).
That said, I'm tempted to suggest you search out a bottle of 10YO Springbank, as this whisky, though displaying a beautifully conveyed sweet-dry-smoke-salt interplay of flavour aspects roughly analogous balance-wise to that of the Highland Park, tastes entirely different!
Old Pulteney 12
Johnnie Walker Green (vatted malt)
Jon, Mark and Robbo's smokey peaty one (vatted malt)
Glen Garioch 8 or 10
Highland Park 18
Famous Grouse 12 year (vatted malt)
I would also nod picking up a bottle of Dalmore 12yo
its another staple here. It also helps that I can pick them up for £19 if you do the conversion so I have about 6 packed away for future adventures.
Oh, and before anyone starts the "It was obviously mis-marked; you should have paid full retail" stuff again, I specifically asked the guy in the shop, and he told me, "Nope, that's the correct price - I double-checked it when we marked it."
