Seeing as the forumites have probably done most any recommendations?
Glenmorangie is an obvious choice.
Balblair is in the area also - but I don't think they normally allow visitors - except by special arrangement?
And as a guardian he might try and nip down to The Glenlivet, assuming he's remembered his key!
Dalmore and Glen Ord aren't too far away and both have visitor centres, but are they any good?
What others are worth a shout - Balvenie got a glowing write-up from Mr T, so he might be able to tag that on to a visit to The Glenlivet if his liver can stand the hospitality!
If it's any help he's done a few WLs now so is probably looking for something a little more than a ye olde wee history video and look at the shiny stills before sampling the 10YO in a bar come visitors shop.

If he can squeeze in a visit to the Anderson in Fortrose, he'll be well rewarded with a huge selection of whiskies and beers.
In the other direction, there's Clynelish. I haven't taken the tour there--the Diageo tours I have taken have been fine but unexceptional. Maybe someone else can comment on Clynelish in particular.
Aberlour would be good because they offer 6 good sized drams including new make and the two that you can bottle yourself - hence not available anywhere else. And they make great whisky, and Deborah is a great guide. Balvenie, also, is great and goes into far more depth.
Could your pal go to Pulteney and thence on to Highland Park? Pulteney does bottle your own and HP apparently does a great tour including maltings.

I also have to agree with the Aberlour tour, it's easily the best tour in Speyside, I've been to it twice. 1st time I got the Sherry casked fill-your-own and had to go back a couple of years later and get the Bourbon casked.
