SINGAPORE -- Described by specialist drink retailer the Whiskey Exchange as having the "perfect balance of fruit, peat and power," the Black Bowmore 1964 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky holds legendary status among aficionados of fine spirits. But it comes at a price.

A "First edition 29 Year Old" of the whiskey was valued at 4,400 pounds ($5,720) in 2015. Fast forward five years, it is now worth 20,000 pounds -- marking a staggering 71% average return per annum for those fortunate enough to have held on to it.
