A single cask OB release is rare and limited by definition as above.
However releases such as Port Ellens, Rosebanks, PC6 are not single casks but only a limited number are available therefore can seen to be collectable (well I wouldn't mind a few bottles for my collection ).
I wouldn't buy it simply because it said 'Limited Edition' on the box, I would research it and make my own mind up whether I'd want to buy it or not.

I think in the short term the single cask (OB only though) will appreciate much more quickly due to the extreme limited availability in comparison to a Limited edition which these days seems to be in the 1000's
Of course what Willie says is spot on .... a bottle with some renown will be a very good investment (if your that way inclined) when it is long gone .... and as good if not better than a single cask.
However then you have these runs of single cask which seem to come out every year and I think that just takes the shine off it and I for one think that's a good thing as all these single casks are trying to exploit the collectors market and once the Distilleries over milk it then some of the madness may stop I'll hold my breath though

IWC, Balvenie issues their 15 yo as single cask bottlings only. Somehow, I don't think there will be too much demand for these as collectibles.
Which is kinda odd when you look at Aberlour a'bunadh batches which at least seemingly around here are!
