Two single malts added to standard Suntory range

Suntory is adding two no-age-statement single malts to its standard range in Japan. Although the company has put out no-age-statement single malts in the past, this is the first time in recent years  that it has added a no-age-statement whisky to the standard range, which is available year-round.

At 3,500 yen for a 700 ml bottle (1750 yen for 350ml) the Yamazaki and Hakushu no statements are more expensive than Nikka Whisky`s Yoichi and Miyagikyo no-age-statement offerings, which can be as cheap as 1,600 yen for 500ml.

I'm intrigued, but I can't work out why they'd put these out for just a few hundred yen less than the 10 year olds - unless they are phasing out the 10? Unless they turn out up the shelves for a lot less then I'm happy to stick with the Yoichi/Miyagikyo offerings too!
