For me, I'd take the Glenlive. I agree with Lex....the extra fruitiness holds more appeal.

Bamber, isn't using the discription of being subtle a kind way of saying it's boring?
I did find the 'livet the nicer of the two.
It is I would not call it a bad whisky however, as it is very distinctive and a lot of people rate it. This thread just made me order a bottle of the Glenlivet 18YO !
The Glenlivet 12 is really pretty high on my list of non Islay malts. I have only had the Glenfiddich 12 once, well, one bottle. If a bar has only one scotch single malt here in Sapporo then it is the 'livet. If it has Glenfiddich they are likely to have ten or twenty other single malts, if not more. And if they have that many malts they will have some good bourbon as well. The 'fiddich does have a special place in my heart, however. Five or eight years ago I bought a bottle. I drank it but have no memory of it at all except that I liked Glenlivet better. But it can in a nice cardboard tube and I used it to save my spare change especially 500 yen coins. I used to buy my plane ticket home with that money every year.
