hm recommendations depend on wether you like the peaty/smoky/salty aromas or the sweet/fruity/malty ones, not primarily on wether they are "better", but what you like better.
Most beginners prefer the latter (like I do). I would recommend The Balvenie Double Wood 12yo, a nice smooth whisky. Palete: Impressions of cherry, vanilla and honey, with a little oak in the finish. At least thats what I think
Impressions may differ from others. And the price is ok, too, imho.
Perhaps you should try a Bourbon, like the Woodford Reserve.
I hope that was a help.
