"There is a shortage of aged Whisky," explains Whisky evaluator Andy Simpson.
“In order to meet global demand, distillers haven’t been holding back stocks to age for later, so you’ve got a lack of older, rare whiskies being released onto the market. And older releases are constantly eroding, because collectors are always drinking them. There’s more and more global demand for the oldest and rarest vintages, all of which will continue to increase in value.”
Basic advice one should follow when hunting for an investment bottle, is to hold on to the respected, well-known brands and look for their limited and special editions. They go fast, so it is important to pay attention to new distillery releases as well as to bottles, offered by Whisky auction houses.
