Has something changed?
No, not high, however a bit perturbed. If you view the following from January of last year:

...you'll read a fairly long thread that dealt with the Balvenie FR. It was also in one of Mark's Whiskycast programmes in January 2006 and at that time this was the quote:
This was the last we'd heard on the forum, so if there is a change in availability I'd sure like to see the "why?" pursued.MGillespie wrote:In his words, the 10Yo Founder's Reserve is NOT being discontinued. However, it will be limited in availability to the UK, US, France, and possibly one or two small markets. They've decided to do this because they want to use the stocks aging now that would have been used for the Founder's Reserve to make the 12YO Doublewood expression.

Yeah, I concur with you on that, I thought that strange as well. I can only assume that the website sells to markets that the 10 yo will not be available to so is no longer listed there. We all know that they have to make a 10 yo to get to a 12yo. In another thread, I seem to remember it was stated, that as they ran out of 10 yo near the end of the bottling, they topped up with 12 yo so buying the 10 was a really great deal!
By the by, the next great deal at the LCBO is the Lobgmorn 15 yo at around $54.00. We peasants must stick together!
RE>Balvenie 10 yo Founders Reserve
I was in the Manitoba MLCC on the weekend and have discovered that they will be discontinuing this product as well. Once their present stocks are gone, they're gone.

Has something changed?
It's being discontinued. Face it, it's happening, stock up. Save yourself.
