    Ancient Ancient Age and Charter 10 to be discontinued.

    This morning on another forum I saw an email to Buffalo Trace inquiring about AAA 10 year in which their rep confirmed that the most recent bottling "will be the last for some time". A few minutes ago I was discussing it with a liquor store clerk and was informed that Charter 10 year is on the chopping block also. That's two reasonably priced aged stated expressions disappearing at the same time BT announced a shortage. Has anyone heard any other rumors about either?

    That would be sad. Neither are distributed where Ilive but I really enjoyed both when I had the rare chance to try them, especially the OC 10.

    Let's call in Chuck (or someone else with real contacts) for confirmation before anyone flies off the handle.

    I heard this rumor a while ago and recently put the question to BT's PR person. I was told that AAA 10 year was not going away, only that they were going to discontinue some sizes of it (they hadn't decided which).

    The information about AAA was confirmed by Nan Harnice, Consumer Affairs Associate, Buffalo Trace Distillery.
    Is that real enough?

    Didn't mean to imply that your info wasn't legitimate. I apologize if that's how it came off. I was only hoping we could get confirmation from another source and not just rumor, that's what I meant by "real." As you can see from Sku's post we already have conflicting information coming out of BT.

    Yeah it's not like conflicting info has ever come out of there before.

    Who had "60 minutes" before this thread went downhill? Relax.

    I apologize if you picked up a different tone from my comment than I intended. I didn't take anyone's input as a slight, and I agree that there can always be a bit of misinformation when it comes to these situations.

    That said, the chain of events of the last few days is starting to paint an unfortunate picture. First I saw an article on Spirits Insider announcing a shortage at BT. This morning I read a copy/paste of an email to BT about AAA that vaguely stated it had ceased production. Then while discussing it with a liquor store owner I was told that the only Charter 10 available from this point on would be plastic travellers. I think that with all of this combined it's pretty likely there will be a big change coming, an unfortunate one for most of us.
