Sums my thoughts up as well
Fiddich for me carries a lot of "baggage" from it's mass production and powerful marketing in the 80's but I quite like it and concur with Ganga's comment.
The Livet is the classier package but I am usually underwhelmed after a dram or two, but like it's delicateness and balance.
Think I'll try them both in a shoot out!
It honestly depends on my mood, but I would almost say I prefer livet in the summer and fiddich in the winter, simply because I find the livet lighter and the fiddich seems to fit right in a roaring fire in the hearth.

That said my preferences are different when compared to the distillerys in general as i do not like the Glenlivet 15 FO but like 18yr etc and i thnk the Glenfiddich Solera Reserve and the Ancient Reserve are cracking drams fro the money.
