5 whiskeys worth collecting

Whiskey is harder to value than wine, but its longevity makes it a worthy option for collectors.

Ever wondered why the French emperor Napoleon is often portrayed with his right hand tucked into his waistcoat? My theory is that he's gripping a hidden flask of his favorite brandy from the ancient cognac house of Courvoisier. And I don't blame him.

I recently savored a rare Courvoisier that was already old when Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo in 1815 and, like Princess Aurora, this sleeping beauty was in great shape. The reason? Spirits may not mature in the bottle like wine, but they don't deteriorate either.The brandy - or whisky - that pleased an emperor two centuries ago would do the same today.

To find five more modern malt whiskies that will stand the test of time, we turned to Sukhinder Singh of The Whisky Exchange (www.thewhiskyexchange.com). He believes the following five bottles will provide some solid returns if you hang onto them - or some liquid ones should you prefer to drink them.
