New type of bottle
If so isn't it time to start stocking up on old bottles of the 10 years old ???
1. We don't finally know for sure, but there is a very good chance that the new 10y Ardbeg will taste different from the old one. So if you like drinking the existing one, stock up whilst you can at a normal price!
Although the new one is coming along next year, does anyone know how much of the 'old' one is still laying around the warehouses?
1a. Will they vat the 10y to retain the same character with a mix of new and old?
2. At some point the 'old' 10y will run out. Will LVMH wish to distinguish between the two? If so, then expect some kind of presentation change.
In which case, the price will only rise for the old.
As with 17y, 1975, 1977 ...........
Perhaps they will release a cask strength vintage bottling, or a series thereof, in keeping with the VY/SY/AT releases.
As for the 10, I though they where going to release a bottling finally there , which one would think would be cask strength to match the others in the series, but shouldn't the 10 remain the same as is ( a vatting of different ages released at 46% ). One would imagine the flavour profile will change over time as more of the new 10 yr old stock comes through.
I will still stock up on some of the current 10 over the next year.
