Whisky is a delicious drink, and a potentially great investment piece.
The right bottle can escalate many times in value over the years, especially if it came from a limited cask run.
But while you may be a dab hand at drinking whisky, how much do you know about investing in it?
Expert advice always helps: and they don't come more expert than the co-founder of The Whisky Exchange, Sukhinder Singh.

Highland Park Fire 15 year old, Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 45.2% – £195
Fire is the second in Highland Park's cult series celebrating Viking legends. Aged entirely in refill port casks, this lightly smoky limited edition with striking packaging has really caught the imagination of whisky lovers worldwide and has already become highly collectable. thewhiskyexchange.com
The Nikka 12 Year Old, Blended Whisky, Japan
70cl / 43% – £86.45
The product of two distilleries (Yoichi and Miyagikyo), The Nikka 12 is one of Japan’s most under-rated whiskies. Plus, as with any good whisky from Japan right now, there is voracious demand and very little supply.thewhiskyexchange.com
Kavalan, Single Sherry Cask #S100125026A, Single Malt Whisky, Taiwan
70cl | 57.8% – £150
Taiwan’s Kavalan distillery is one of the hottest names in the whisky world right now, winning award after award. And rightly so. Indeed, in terms of popularity, there are signs that Taiwan could become the next Japan. This deeply coloured and intensely flavoured whisky marries Kavalan's trademark fresh-fruit flavours with deep dried-fruit notes, and a rich, nutty sherry-cask character. This is an extremely rare single cask release which yielded only 526 bottles. thewhiskyexchange.com
Tomatin 36 year old, Batch No.2 Rare Casks, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 46% – £499
Highly prized by whisky connoisseurs due to the spellbinding quality of this whisky, Tomatin remains relatively unknown and highly under-rated by the wider whisky community, and thus offers excellent value. Packed full of intensity along with clove, cardamom and vanilla notes, only 800 bottles of this sublime whisky were produced.thewhiskyexchange.com
Glen Grant 50 year old, Gordon & MacPhail, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 43% – £650
Exceptional value for a single malt whisky of this age and quality. This is intensely rich and sherried with intense fruit flavours that linger beautifully. Most official distillery bottlings of a similar age are selling for as much as £10,000 per bottle. thewhiskyexchange.com
Brora 30 year old, 9th Release (2010), Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 54.3% – £1000
Not only one of the great single malts in existence, but also a closed or ‘lost’ distillery which means that the whiskies will only get rarer and more expensive as time goes by. It offers outstanding value for the quality, not least as the most recent 30 year old official release is selling at around £2500 per bottle. thewhiskyexchange.com
Glenmorangie Bacalta, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 46% – £77.95
Under the inspired leadership of Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie is one of the most popular and innovative Scottish distilleries. Bacalta is the eight release in Glenmorangie's annual limited Private Edition series. Just released, whiskies from this range always sell out fast, due to their high quality and sensible pricing. The whisky has been finished in casks seasoned with Malmsey Madeira, yielding a rich, fruity style with notes of caramelised apricots, dates, almonds and honeycomb. thewhiskyexchange.com
Port Ellen 1978, 29 year old 8th Release (2008), Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 55.3% – £1200
Arguably the most famous and sought-after of all the closed or ‘lost’ Scottish distilleries. As with Brora, the whiskies are fabulous and get increasingly rare with each passing year. This bottling feels under-priced compared to similar whiskies, and definitely has room to increase in price.thewhiskyexchange.com
Glenfarclas 60 year old, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 43.3% – £14,750
An incredibly long-aged release, even by Glenfarclas's own standards. This exceptional bottling is one of the oldest single malts on the market, with a reputation for excellent quality to match. Aging in a first-fill sherry butt gives it the rich, dark colour and character that appeals to whisky lovers around the world. thewhiskyexchange.com
Mortlach 1939, 75 year old, Gordon & MacPhail Generations, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 44.4% – £22,500
The oldest whisky ever to be released. This single first-fill sherry butt of Mortlach was distilled on 17 November 1939 and bottled at an incredible 75 years of age in 2015 by Gordon & MacPhail. Just 100 teardrop-shaped decanters were produced of this ultimate collector's whisky. Given its potential and uniqueness, this is a bargain at the price. thewhiskyexchange.com
Black Tot Last Consignment, Royal Naval Rum
70cl / 54.3% – £650
And as a bonus... Not a whisky, but a rum that deserves its place in any list of collectable spirits. Aromas of thick treacle, dark chocolate and super-ripe black fruits reveal a lively palate full of cassis, espresso and cigar tobacco. Its quality, rarity and uniqueness as the last consignment of Royal Navy Rum, the ‘Black Tot’ from 1970 is unsurpassed. thewhiskyexchange.com
