Maybe it would make more sense to keep releasing a 6yo instead, to maintain steady supply. Or, since the idea of it was originally to present a work in progress, a 6, a 7, and an 8. Cue Bob Dylan: Forever Young.
To join in Robs42 "Factual" bit , the very first one (the "For approval" or VYA as it's become known) was from the first produced under new ownership (vintage 1997) , last years "Very Young" (AKA AVY) was 1998 vintage , they are releasing the same year to show how it progresses through to the "Ten" .
To go off on a tangent , in a way Murray McDavid have been doing the same with the 1991 Ardbeg it's been releasing , from an 8yo to the 14yo that was available at the Feis Ile this year (shame they spoilt it a bit by bunging it in a Bloodtub ) .
I'm really looking forward to seeing how Stuarts brew works out at an older age , i've had a try of a 1999 at a younger age and that was even better again than the VYA and VYA , more power to your elbow Mr Thomson or is it Daley ?
