13 year old is indeed a weird age for a blend. We usually find those aged 10 or 12. When asked about this, Richard Paterson, Master Blender of W&M , replied that after blending malts of at least 12 years old, the malts are then married for an additional year until they are 13 years old in the cask to further harmonise them, then they are bottled.
Nose: malt , mint , honey and warm sherry.
Palate : firm body with honey, sultanas , and big malty backbone, the grain is very noticeable.
