Whisky/bourbon question

I love beer.  I've home brewed for a good 17 years now, and have tasted my way up down forward backward and sideways through the multitude of different beer styles.
Somewhere along the way I also picked up a taste for tequilla and have worked my way through the profiles of that nuanced liquor as well.
My question though is about whisky/bourbon.  As much as I've honestly tried, I have just never stumbled across any make or brand that has tripped my trigger.  Then a friend of mine said he didn't like whisky either, but a friend of his had him try a very "peaty" one and he loved it.
Any suggestions on especially "peaty" whiskies I can try?
Compiled list of recommendations
Jim Beam - tried.  no.
Makers Mark  - no
Ancient Ancient Age (AAA or Triple A)
Woodford Reserve
George Dickle
Jack Danels - tried.  so-so
Old Grandad 114
Wild Turkey 108.2 (known as Wild Turkey Rare Breed)
any of the Islay single malts
