Took the words right out of my mouth.
Many, many years ago, I would have taken the Glenlivet 12YO over the NAS Glenfiddich. When the first release of the Glenfiddich 12YO came onto the marketplace, it marginally edged out the Glenlivet 12YO for me. But even as it appears to have improved over the intervening period, so too has the Glenlivet 12YO... and the latter perhaps more so.
Honestly, I can't pick between the two current versions (so close in quality they are for me), so I won't vote this time around.
