I'm not great at these things, but here goes from the series that I remember.
Agreed about Australia in 2005 and 2010-11.
If pushed, I'd rate SL in 2000-01 even higher than Pakistan in the same winter.
I loved the 1976-77 win in India, being still young and impressionable. Objectively, it was no better than 2012-13, but I'll pick the one from my formative years. 2011 was too easy, I suppose.
And I did absolutely love the 2004 win in the Caribbean. I know WI weren't great by then, but we hadn't won over there in ages, and we still haven't won over there since then. It felt like the start of something special and was one of the rare occasions when that turned out to be the case.

Other than that, there isn't a lot. Certainly not in the 1980s or 1990s, apart from beating SA in 1998. Maybe that one should be in there. The 1984/85 win in India was enjoyable, but India were much stronger in 1976/77 and 2012/13. The 1981 Ashes were less of a great performance and more of a case of divine intervention being needed against relatively moderate opponents. 1977 was a better team performance in many ways. More recently, the 2004-05 win in SA was a good effort.
