Last week I had ordered one bottle of Balvenie 10 year old from Capital Drinks and it was only £32.99. Now I wanted to buy a second bottle but the price has gone up-to £49.99. So I was just wondering what a whiskies price might go up by when it goes out of production? Do you see the price of say the Balvenie going up even higher than £49.99 and also I take it that this is now a collectors item?
They also have the old Glenlivet 21 year old archive in a blue bottle presentation which has also been stopped in production, is this also worth looking at as a collectors item and will it be worth more in the future?
Hope this was posted in the right section.

While an old bottling of Glenfiddich might be discontinued 10 years ago, because there continue to be many different bottlings of Glenfiddich in the future, it won't appreciate half as much as a distillery which closed 10 years ago. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I suppose) we're not currently in an era of closing distilleries.
I dont know about that , Edrington Group reducing production, Diageo reducing production...Springbank closure for 4-5months last year..... what might come next????

I bought a bottle of the (now discontinued) Ardbeg 17 about 3 years ago. Can't have been more than £40. I drank it.I thought it wan't as good as the 10.
Dammit I shoulda kept it! Such a bottle is now worth about £150 I believe...
Auctions are a more likely estimate!
