My new Abell D is ready to be delivered. What would you guys recommend for maintenance? Almond oil, pipe cleaner, etc? What brands?

The whistle is going to arrive already maintained and oiled from the maker so you won't have to do anything for awhile. Simple maintenance. Abell ought to provide the necessary instructions for upkeep. Too much oiling can be harmful to the whistle playability so don't fret. Enjoy the Abell.

'Benign neglect' is the key.

I would look at the maker's webpage about maintenance (section for each of flutes & whistles):
