It appears Balvenie 10 is no more (according to RMW anyway) and being replaced by the 'Balvenie 12 Signature' - a vatting of fresh and refill bourbon with sherry casks. I'm unsure where this leaves the 12yo DW within their range - is this going too?
One thing I know for sure is that Balvenie 10/FR will be missed by many so my advice, if you like it, is to stock up now.

The big question is, is there going to be a big price crash on the 10 like we have seen with other discontinued malts?
It's still £20 in Sainsbury's as far as I'm aware.

I've heard that The Balvenie Founders Reserve Ten Year Old is being discontinued - is this true?
Yes, after much careful consideration we've decided to gradually retire The Balvenie Founder's Reserve 10 Year Old from our range of Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, from January 2008.
Founder's Reserve has been a popular member of our award-winning range for many years. But part of what makes The Balvenie so special is our constant search for new expressions through experimentation with different woods, ages and marriages.
We've been truly astonished by the reaction of Balvenie enthusiasts to our limited edition and rare and vintage releases. The most recent example was The Balvenie SherryOak 17 Year Old, which has already caused a bit of a stir. However our tradition of experimentation means we sometimes have to let old friends
Our stock of The Balvenie is limited and very precious, which means that as much as we'd like to, we simply can't keep expanding the Balvenie range. By retiring our 10 year old and saving stock for older expressions, we'll have new freedom to explore and craft new and exciting additions to our highly prized range of Speyside single malts.
It'll still be possible to buy The Balvenie Founder's Reserve 10 Year Old while stocks last. We're reserving much of our stock for the USA where it sells the most, but a small amount will be available elsewhere. We anticipate that Founder's Reserve will finally disappear from shelves the world over in 2009.

It will be interesting how the 12 Signature compares to the DW.
I hope the Sigignature is not going to break the bank and Balvenie continues to have whisky at different price points.
If the core expression goes up in age, I take that as a sign that there is plenty of good stock in the warehouse.
