As a point of reference, on my shelf I have Lagavulin 16 and 12 CS, Ardbeg 10, Laphroaig QC and 18, Highland Park 12, JW Green, Hibiki 12, and several bourbons (although I would imagine those are more expensive in the UK) and love all of them.
I was thinking the Suntory Hashuku for a friend of mine who loves the Yamazaki because I don't think Hashuku is available in the US, and maybe the HP Saint Magnus? How about one of the Port Charlottes? Does anyone know any releases that are unique to the UK?
I'd keep an eye open for an exclusive, older Islay or island whisky - preferably cask strength.
Hakushu 12 is fantastic ( a current favourite of mine is the Hakushu Heavily Peated). All the Port Charlottes are consistently good/excellent.
You could look at acquiring a bottle of The English Whisky Co. St Georges Chapter 6 or Chapter 9. The #6 is unpeated and the #9 is peated. Both are a delight.

I'd also recommend the Cadenhead's shop, they haven't been available on this side of the pond since the turn of the century. Whenever I'm in the U.K. (usually Scotland) I make it a point to visit Cadenhead's for at least a couple bottles.
