Scotch whisky world: www.scotchworld.com has a few whiskies from 1966 including Springbank, Balvenie and Glenturret.
www.royalmilewhiskies.com has a large number of whiskies from 1966.
Also, Fiona Murdoch at Dufftown's whisky shop ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) has a few from that year.
I've never had a whisky that old so I can't vouch for the quality.
I got the opportunity to try a 1966 36y Bowmore from the Peerless collection (approx. EUR 170,-). It was as an example of how Bowmore should taste like, because the stills were fired with coal at that time. I remember it was an interesting and beautiful experience, but not as memorable as e.g. an Ardbeg 30y old OB compares to the current range.
The Dalwhinnie was allegedly a oddbins exclusive - but Sukinder usually gets his hands on these things, I haven't tried it but I would have to put this whisky in the over priced category.
if you can find a 66 springer I'd say you would have to part with your cash - but it would be worth it!
I seem to rember it was an 'acquired taste' - mind you I hadn't met Lagavulin then;
I collect HP ('the sauce') and have a '66 but that is for a later day;
Wouldn't mind getting hold of the Scapa '66 to try it now;
