Another vote for Laphroaig, here. Smoky and delicious. Don't forget a splash of H2O, whatever you pick.
recomend me a great whisky please !
(other versions of this are available - YMMV)
I wouldn't get hung up on it been a single malt there are some great blends out there too such Black Bush, Tom O'Shanter and Blue Label. As some on once told me why just have the Oboe when you can have the full orchestra.
Single malts I would recommend are Bushmills 16 year old, Glenlivet, Aberlour, Edradour various cask also un-chilled filtered and Bruichladich.
Masters of Malt will do you some taster samples based on what you've enjoyed and through their experience what you would like. They will throw in a wild card too
Well I set myself a task 30 years ago to do just what you want to do - find the best whisky in the world(i.e. Scotland). Not succeeded yet, Oh well looks like I will have to keep trying. I might even have to taste everything available, maybe more than once.

Would you rather have Napalm Death or a guitar solo?

I don't know about "best whisky in the world", but the best whisky in terms of "bang for your buck" is unequivocally Benromach Organic. There might well be better whiskies in the world, but at that price point it's utterly unbeatable.
Buy this and work your way through it! it's a great wee book and has single malts, blends, Scottish whisky, Indian whisky, Japanese whisky, Bourbons, all sorts! http://www.amazon.co.uk/101-Whiskies-Try-Before-You/dp/0755360834
I'm utterly biased as I was raised about a kilometre from it, but the Ben Romach Port finish is lovely.
Also, have a look at the Gordon and Macphail website, they're a family owned company who've made their (excellent reputation) on doing interesting finishes. Some of their Speymalt Macallans are amazing.
Kavalan from Taiwan. Seriously. Delicious, and I know my malts
I am a Talisker drinker, but when out with a friend at the Scottish Whiskey Society recently, I tried one called "engineer's lunchbox" which absolutely blew me away. Smelled like sitting next to a peat fire which was blowing back slightly, so smoky, and wonderful taste. I raved about it for days, but unfortunately, £60 on a bottle of whisky is too rich for me these days
Great whisky pretty much depends on what your taste - mate of mine raves about Big peat, wasn't impressed.
Right now I have open bottles of Auchentoshan matured in bourbon casks and unpeated and Fettercairn Fior a blend of bourbon and sherry casks, one of the malts being heavily peated.
Totally different, both winners IMHO
oh and I'd recommend this
and one of these
+1 on the Glencairn glass. Every home should have one. Or two. I think I've got about a dozen now. (-:
I reccomend trying a Glenrothes.
