Only Time Will Tell…
Collecting has a number of benefits. But you need to patient.
The first is that what you might think of as expensive now will be really expensive or hard to find in a number of years. So, in the future you will have some cheap, but splendid whisky to consume that you’ve already paid for!
The other side of the coin, is the one based on the simple economic principal that things and stuff change over time. What you put away today may not be available in a number of years’ time. And if you’re really lucky, it could be that fellow collectors are paying big dollars for it. So, you might end up with a gold mine.
Distillery marketing execs are notorious for constantly fiddling around with labels, brands and styles. So, once again, what you have in your collection today, may no longer be available tomorrow. And let’s not forget that nostalgia for things of the past has a great effect on pricing, as I keep hearing all the time, “they made malts so much better in the past”
