I personally feel that they want you to try a bottle or two and age the other couple of bottles to see how the flavors develop.

Of course, that's not to knock the drinker that loves young barleywines. A young barleywine is something to behold in its own right. I got 4 bottles of BFBW 2011, drank one, and have to say that it's pretty good.
Yeah I was at the beer store yesterday, and a bottle of Flying Mouflan had a note written on the label, stating "Cellaring the Flying Mouflan in a cool dark place at 50 degrees for a minimum of four months will mellow out the hops and wash away the heat."
