Yes, I'd have voted for Dailuaine.

The Bladnoch is excellent! Very mandarin and spicy and malty, really nice. I have the Rosebank but have yet to taste it. I am curious though!

I'd say definitely the Clynelish, followed closely by Mortlach.

Bladnoch is quite delicious as well, but I must admit that I haven't tasted nearly all of the bottlings from this series.

Is Clynelish still bottled under F&F, now that it has its own Hidden Malts label?

Not to my knowledge. The whole Flora & fauna series is finished (some bottles still floating around), and the Clynelish F&F bottling hasn't been available for quite a while now any more.

Mortlach for me, I still need to try quite a bit of the range.

Clynelish is not anymore bottled under F&F since it appeared in the Hidden Malt label.
Otherwise, F&F is still produced. They had a new batch of the Auchroisk and of Rosebank. The F&F is now sold with nice wooden Boxes and the price of the Rosebank has slightly increased....

Only tried the Blair Athol ( Royal Mile recommendation) , but love it - mellow and with a lovely finish. Must get some more of these bottlings
