What is really coming is the new 10yo
that is to say the 10yo that has been in production since Ardbeg
started back up again in 1998.

Just remember that since Ardbeg wasn't operating
during the mid 90's that means that ALL of the 10yo
they have been releasing for the past 8 years
has had older stuff in it.

I think that there was just too much down time
for them to have stock to release anything consistently
other then the 10yo.

So I highly doubt that we will see a steady stream of
a standard 17yo until 2015.

My guess is that even the Nam Beist
will only stay a 16yo for a little while. Come on how much stock
of the old stuff do they still have?

I think by 2010 we will see a very strong 10yo
and the non-age statement Uigeadail
and everything else as very expensive special releases.

What do you guys think?

As posted in the news section of http://www.whisky-news.com, Ardbeg will release officially next month the "Almost There".
Regarding the Ardbeg 17, it can only be produced when the Kildalton will be 17YO. The Kildalton has only been produced starting 2001 if I am not wrong, so you will have to wait.

Sorry but Ardbeg was distilling in the Mid 90's .
Ardbeg restarted production under Allied in Nov 1989 , Allied produced right through until late 1996 , After Glenmorangie bought it off them , they started a limited production on 25th June 1997 , full production didn't occur until 1998 hence all the Very Youngs (Committee Approved) / Still Youngs / The soon to be Almost There and the next spanking new 10yo are all 1998 distillations , only the Very Young (For Committee Approval ) was 1997 .
The Ten have been 10 year olds seeing as stock was available , the First Ten in 2000 contained 1990 , 2001 - 1991 etc etc .
The Old "Allied" Guaranteed 10yo contained older stocks (supposedly 13yo but it would have had to seeing it was released in the early 1990's and Ardbeg was mothballed from 1982-1989).

The only time you might get older stock in the current TEN is if they do a batch this year to cover till the all Glenmorangie distilled Ten comes out in 2008 and then it could be only 11yo due to the dates !

Of course there's always the chance that the current 10yo might contain older ( 11/12/13yo ) stock to get the balance of the vatting right but all distillers do this to get the expression they want.......

didnt expect the almost there to be out so soon, wasnt there a big gap between the very young and the still young?
