Hm. Does favorites mean best or those that I enjoy having? I'll go with enjoy (and have had in the last year) having although it isn't exclusive.

1. Bowmore 1968, 32
2. Lagavulin 12, 2009
3. HP 27, Oklahoma bottling
4. Glenfarclas 11, Traverso bottling
5. Ardbeg Beist
6. Glenfarclas 1965, OMC
7. Talisker 25, 59.9
8. Ardbeg Provenance, 54.7
9. Tomatin 38, DT
10. Macallan 18, 1990

It really isn't an order there, they just seem to fit the bill of really tasty whiskies.

There are a few favorites that I've tried samples of, but I'll stick to those that I've had a bottle of:

1. Laphroaig 30
2. Secret Stills 2.2 1966 40 year (Cragganmore)
3. Lagavulin 16
4. Lagavulin 12 2009 (this satisfies the same cravings that my favorite CIs do)
5. Talisker 18
6. Highland Park 18
7. Caol Ila 10 Unpeated
8. Glenlivet 1977 27 yr. (Scott's Selection)
9. William Larue Weller 2009 bourbon
10. Jefferson's Presidential Select 17 yr. bourbon

I hadn't given much consideration to the rankings, but I like everything you mentioned.
