he pop­u­lar­ity of single malt Scotch whisky has been on a steady rise in re­cent years. In his whisky in­vest­ment mas­ter­class, Mike Sold­ner, whisky con­nois­seur and founder of B28 Whisky Fund, said single malt Scotch is rapidly be­com­ing the drink of choice in Asia.

“The right bot­tle, cask, col­lec­tion or port­fo­lio of single malt Scotch whisky is viewed by savvy Asian in­vestors as a vi­able al­ter­na­tive as­set class,” he added, as he out­lined the var­i­ous types of whisky avail­able and three in­vest­ment rec­om­men­da­tions: rare bot­tles, casks or dis­til­leries. How­ever, he stressed that there is a lim­ited sup­ply to fit the grow­ing de­mand for whisky around the world, see­ing as how whisky takes more than a decade to ma­ture.

Par­tic­i­pants were en­cour­aged to join the whisky tast­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion ses­sions, where Sold­ner in­tro­duced en­thu­si­asts to three single cask Scotch whiskies, namely Port Dun­das 28 Years Old, Glen­burgie 36 Years Old and Laphroaig 16 Years Old as well as the Ard­gowan Ex­hi­bi­tion 20 Year Old Pre­mium Blended Malt, which was the whisky of choice for ex­plorer Robert Swan and his son, Barney, in their ex­pe­di­tion to the South Pole. www.btwen­tyeight.com
