    Batch # 12 of Glendronach's single cask bottlings was released in September of last year, now they're back in batch # 13,
    which has just been announced in an official press release.
    Batch # 13 also features the oldest ever Glendronach, a 1968 single casket 47 years old.
    Color : Dark oak with purple markings.
    Nose: Intense notes of dark syrup, pickled plums and thick plum jam, with light spicy notes and gossamer cigar smoke.
    Palate: Strong sherry character, dark plums and molasses, bitter oranges and strong espresso, with notes of eucalyptus and pine needles.

    Despite this whisky has been rated 95.52 by 23 members, I doubt any of these bottles has been opened. If you ask me, it's pathetic if a whisky is highly rated just because some people want a bottle in their collections more valuable.

    Nose: Dates, oranges, pears. Marple syrup. Light smoke. Warm chocolate. Camphor too.
    Taste: Quite spicy, intense and powerful. Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins, dates. Slightly tannic, but the wood is rather soft and quite balanced. A bit of cocoa. Then blackberries, oranges and tangerines, sweet mellow mango.
    Finish: Very long, oily, sweet, slightly woody and tannic, dark fruits, cherry and orange zest. Some dark chocolate and honey soaked cherry liquer.
