I may have added other whiskies (Cragganmore, Glenfarclas, Balvenie, etc.) but I really wanted a race among just the three of them!
I found the Glenfiddich 12 to be missing something
The Glenlivet 12 is nice but I tend to dismiss it next to the 15 French Oak which I adore.
Spend an extra few quid and buy a CS Nadurra.

Surprised you didn't buy 2 at that price Nick. Cheap and nasty bourbons and Scotch blends cost more than that here in Australia.

Several years ago I would have stated Balvenie 10 Founders Reserve as the Signature Speyside. With the king gone I think the seat is still up for grabs.

The king is still alive!
But you have to pay more for an audience...
Nevertheless I find the Aberlour far better than the Glenlivet.
While the Aberlour is fuller and nuttier, I find that the 'livet has a bitter after-taste that I don't like very much (even though I love the nose), moreover it seems to me a little unbalanced.
I don't know if it's my bottle, or if it's the malt...I will have to sample from another bottle to reach a conclusion.
