Suggestions on Single Malt

I think I am finally developing a taste for Single Malt Scotch, but I am clueless when it comes to brands and years. I am such a novice with it that I do not even know what I like or don't like in a scotch. Can you give me an education and let me know what types you like and how you drink it. I have been drinking it neat when I have had it, but are there other ways to enjoy a quality single malt?

The places around me do not have single malt nips unfortunately.

Well then you 'll just have to go to a bar and spend the day.

What are "nips?" I do enjoy scotch, but know very little about the three malt levels, except only certain distilleries can produce them.

Nips are those little bottles of booze that airlines give you when you order a drink. Around here, most alcoholic beverage stores sell them.

My current favorite is Highland Park. The 12-year-old is reasonably priced. The 15-year-old is expensive but worth the price.
