Hi Ian ,
yup the first casked Glenmo Ardbeg reached 10yo a week yesterday , we had a bit of a birthday party over on my sites chatroom and had a special guest along for a bit of the night , the manager of Ardbeg Mickey Heads .
The Actual new Ten (10yo) isn't due till next year ( 1998 distillation) , the main reason that they used the 1998 for these releases is stock , there was a lot more distilled in 1998 than in 1997 .
Going off the "For Discussion" what was distilled in 1997 was outstanding and hopefully we'll see some more released at some point ! (Please.....)
