Glen Elgin 12 years old gave me mixed emotions. For me it feels like a sequel to something more full. That's why it was easy to make a reference to Kill Bill. Kill Bill vol. 2 wasn't completely bad but comparing it to vol. 1 it is like a teenager trying to fight with a contender.

Kill Bill vol. 2 was meant to be deep and it kinda tripped into it's own deepness. I think that's what happened to Glen Elgin 12 yrs. It got too complex and mixed too different flavors together. It is hard to follow. Like any Tarantino movie, it isn't bad, that's not the case. It just leaves you baffled.

Nose: Floral with honey and toffee attached to it.

Taste: This is tricky. On the other side its smooth and fruity sweet but it also kinda gives you spices and maybe even hints of smoke(?). There's definitely caramel in there.

Finish: Spicy and oily finish. This is very tricky for me indeed.

Balance: Not very balanced. Made my tasting very difficult. This was part of our whisky society tasting so it's a shame I didn't have my own bottle of this. Glen Elgin 12 yrs surely needs more exploring.
