    Ancient Age 10 star discontinued?

    Just read this from Fred Minnick's post on whiskeyadvocate. I am wondering if it is a typo, supposed to be ancient ancient age 10 star, or if there was an ancient age 10 star I was not aware of.

    "We also have solid evidence of brands discontinuing products—see Early Times 354 and Ancient Age 10 Star—to use these earmarked stocks for more popular brands"

    Ancient Age 10 star discontinued?

    Maybe he's getting this confused with 10-Year?

    I have another question about this I hope isn't too far off topic. I just got a 375 of AAA 10 Star. It says aged at least 36 months. My 750's of this do not have an age statement. Did they lower the age of this? Back on topic, Hope he meant the 10 year being discontinued

    Maybe the age statement is a reflection of the new push, for the moment at least, by TTB to require an age statement on straight bourbon under 4 years.

    The (not recently updated) brand portfolio page on the Sazerac web site claims that AAA 10 Star is a 6-year-old bourbon:

    I'd wager that it's getting younger.

    I think he later said (in the comments or somewhere) that he meant 10 y/o not 10 star.

    Hmmm. Not in the blog comments. Maybe it was on Facebook or I just imagined it.

    Re: Ancient Age 10 star discontinued?

    There is this thread from last year that referenced a Minnick story in WA which referred to the AAA 10 yr being discontinued, but not the AAA 10 Star:

    I think we need a stickied "is this being discontinued?" thread.
