Not all whisky needs an age statement but it would be nice to see one. In fact it would be nice to see all relevant info on a bottles such as chill filtered or non chill filtered, age, added colour or no added colour. But that isnt going to happen.
There does seem to be a few of these more expensive NAS premium whiskies around now such as Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix, Glenmorangie Signet and Bushmills 400th Anniversary bottling and they are all very good indeed and good examples of the quality of whisky the whisky companies can produce blending older and younger whiskies.
I dont believe all whisky needs to carry an age statement but for some of the NAS whiskies with the premium price tags i do think the whisky companies could be more transparent about what is in the bottle.

Hello to everybody!
I think most of the folk took the question wrong way and start to associate age with quality.
Personally I would like that every whisky producer put and age statement on the bottle...it doesn't make any harm anyway and is quite interesting..but,well maybe not from marketing point of view.
I agree that the age don't associate with quality as from my personal experience...for exemple..
I've opened recently a bottle of Clynelish 14yo,and the Glenfiddich18yo batch 3240 and the Glengoyne teapot dram without an age statement and the winner was Glengoyne teapot dram alllllll the waaaayyyyy.
