US-05, an amazing yeast for Meads, Ales, and for doing fake Lagers.
SN-11 (local country variant I suspect is just repackaged EC-1118 for local market)

I use the first two almost as much as each other on equal basis, only occasionally use SN-11.

I've always been a fan of wyeast 1056 american ale, it can get up to 12-14% before petering out, and the fruity esters it produces work really well with meads, particularly orange blossom honey.
