This week, GlenDronach batch 16 has reached many specialist shops around the UK. The larger shops seem to have been allocated one case per bottle, while many smaller shops that were given an allocation of the previous batches have received none as we reported in an earlier post.
One of the most common questions I have received these days is “How do I get hold of any of the bottles in batch 16?”. Well, the boring answer is either by luck (for example Green Welly Shop’s ballot) or by calling directly to whisky shops around the UK.
Many shops tend not to advertise having them or putting them on their online shops, possibly because many have already taken pre-orders and their allocation is gone since long.
Prices are fluctuating as well. Some have gone 10-15% above the RRP, while others have set a lower price than the RRP by a few pounds.
