Great list. I am not voting, as there is a difference between my every day (widely avaliable top ten) and my all time favorites. I very much agree with most of your choices; the HP 18 is one of my favorite every days, and Lagavulin 16 makes the list (at least the expression that I had two years ago, last years was a few points below).
The one malt that I do not like, and I know I am in the minority here, is the Glenmorangie 10.
Here is my list
