I know this is not a common choice, but for me the best Infocom game was The Witness. It's a mystery story, written in a somewhat noir hard-boiled fashion, which is a genre of fiction that I like. But what makes the game work so well is IT'S A GAME YOU CAN ACTUALLY FINISH! It's not particularly hard and there's no need for perfect timing to finish it successfully.

If you haven't tried it, I encourage you to get a copy and give it a whirl. It was included in the Lost Treasures of Infocom as well as pretty much every other collection they put together.

Spellbreaker deserves to be higher on that list. Certainly above Sorcerer. The hands-down most well-designed puzzles in any Infocom game, or in any game really. What little story it has is amazing too.
