With the diversity of whiskey and rich plethora of brands and blends, malts, vatted... Can you really do anything but LOVE the stuff?
Moreover, I am very impressed with Kilbeggan (Irish). Almost like a "light" version of Black Bush (not as silky, but has the fruit & smoothness). It's also cheap (around € 15) so I recommend it.
Another oldie I recently had was Teacher's. Unfortunately I can't stand it. Too sherried and way out of sync. For my palate, anyway.
Iain, I'm not sure if it's as sherried as W&M, but AFAIK there's a substantial amount of Glendronach in Teacher's, and that's my nightmare of a malt. Which W&M have you had? Are they all very sherried? I've been wanting to try the 12 year old for some time.
Royal mile whiskies in Edinburgh have Islay Mist as their house blend for £13.
I must say that I thought Dewar's White Label was far better than the 12 yr old.
Never tried Whyte and Mackay at older ages but I'm a big fan of the standard bottling.
They generally don't do OB's, but there were centenary anniversary 12yo and 21yo OB's a few years back. Whisky Exchange have got some. Most common is G&M 14yo, but there are Signatory bottlings too, and the SMWS has just released one which is getting a good review, although I can't vouch for it myself yet.
