Most of you are probably younger than this whisky. At HK$395,000 a bottle, Private Collection Glenlivet 1943, by Scotch whisky maker Gordon & MacPhail, is one of the world’s rarest and oldest malt whiskies.

The whisky was matured in a first-fill Sherry hogshead for 70 years. A full, fresh flavour of dark chocolate, oranges and oakiness intermingles with treacle and licorice and culminates with a subtle, ashy smokiness and an incredibly long finish.

Whisky makes for good investment as demand for aged and rare single malts grows

The second world war whisky is limited to only 40 decanters worldwide, nine of which are available in Asia – mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and Japan.

Why fans of single malts shouldn’t dismiss blended whiskies

Each comes with a commemorative book, written by whisky author Johnny McCormick. Each decanter is individually numbered with a certificate of authenticity signed by Stephen Rankin, the brand’s UK sales director and the fourth generation of the Urquhart family.
