I grabbed a bottle of Glenlivit Nadurra around Christmas time - holy hell is that good stuff. Non-chill filtered and cask strength. It's not cheap, but it goes down smooth as can be and has almost a pear note to it.
It's not what you drink if you're after a good burn, but it if you're looking for an extremely good mellow scotch, that's a bottle you definitely want to have around.
Now if you're wanting a nice peaty burn, find a bottle of Ardbeg Corryvreckan. Your kitchen smells like a campfire as soon as you pop the cork. It's also not a drink for every occasion, but if you're in the mood for it, man oh man is it good stuff.
If you have a bottle of Nadurra, a bottle of Corryvreckan and then a bottle of 15 yr old Fiddich, you've pretty much covered all the bases.
