Valuable Whisky Collection

In the News

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-50516099

The collection was estimated to have an auction hammer price of nearly £10.8m by valuation experts at Rare Whisky 101 (RW101)

I will never understand it. I love whisky but usually to drink, not to have on display, even though it looks good

The problem with ridiculously expensive whisky is that it ceases to be a tasty drink and simply becomes an object. What is the point of leaving it in a barrel for 20-50 years to get a refined complex drink if most buyers are only going to add it to their collection or get it for investment purposes 🥃

I agree. I mean I suppose there’s a chance someone will drink it some day. Won’t they be disappointed if they were to find out that the aged whisky just tasted like dirt water...replaced hastily by a former owner of the bottle 😜

My mother loves a good whisky. The only expensive bottle of whisky she has kept is one that we gave her for her birthday, which was inscribed with a message from our son. She drank the whisky from it though!

Lol I’d do the same. The bottle would definitely be kept for sentimental value. The whisky drink itself would be for pure enjoyment 😊

hspexy exactly! We bought it to be drunk and enjoyed, not to be looked at.
