Batch 38- more please!!!!

Glen Garioch put this down in 1991 and it is spectacular. Cask Strength and needs water and air. This is marked as Batch 38 and available in the USA. I have just run out - and looking for more if anyone can help.

Nose: Fairly restrained start, followed by a bitter sweetness like old tawny port. Some dust and clay. Spices.
Unusual, but very interesting. A little cheesy? It grows surprisingly complex over time. And a hint of sulphur?
Taste: Smooth start, followed by the same odd fruits I found in the nose - and then some meaty notes.
Score: 86 points - a very nice whisky that responds well to time and air.
