I'll agree with the ESC Macallan's but I'm not sure about the Blacker Still, Bruichladdich has put out alot of bottles and this is just enouther one of them unless you were going with the name, It is also pricey to boot, so it may go up in value but not to the proportions that would put it in the extremly great investment catagorie.

Macallan ESC probabyl, Blacker Still unlikely, but the PC5 might be one...
It order to reach such a status, the whisky should be excellent. To my opinion, the blackerstill is not in that league. Good yes, excellent? I let you decide.

Macallan ESC was a series of Exceptional Single Cask( I THINK this is what it sttood for) releases by Macallan @ 2002-4. I don't even know if the series is still being continued.

I have an unopened "tube" of the 1989 cask 552, which I believe was ESC5.It is sealed with a blue paper ribbon on which is wriiten release dates and details.

It retailed for £75 UK, for a 500ml bottle when released. I won mine as a prize at a Macallan tasting weekend in 2004. I had previously sampled it at the tasting, and it WAS exceptional. I was then asked to speak about it and they couldn't shut me up! Similar flavour profile as a typical Mac CS, but with so much more complexity and length. It also scored 94 from Jim Murray, which by his standards is high for a Macallan.

I haven't dared open mine, and i'm NOT a collector...I'm a consumer! However i've already been advised that it may be worth a bob or two, and may increase in value, so I think I'll leave it unopened, and continue to enjoy whiskies that i can afford to drink!

Oddly enough, a Bay Area shop is selling Loch Dhu for $1000 per.

No, I'm not joking. (The shop shall remain nameless as for most things, it's pretty good)

It's unlikely that any current bottling is going to have the same growth enjoyed by the Bowmore Black, but i shall continue to forecast an upward growth on the Bruichladdich Blacker Still.

The Macallan ECS Series has been discontinued for a couple of years now.

Here are some more bottling's that i predict a bright future for...

1. Bowmore 1971 34yo OB.
2. Ardbeg 1990 only for Japan OB.
3. Highland Park Lunar bottling OB.
4. Macallan Woodland OB.
5. Flora & Fauna C/S Limited Editions OB.

The Macallan seasonal bottling seem to be doing good, The 14 yr old winter bottling is a great dram and I've seen it go for as much as 4-5 times what it's original price was.

I still feel that only old vintages that are getting rare will ever do as good as the black bowmore, 60's Bowmore is great and it is extremly rare, look at the price of the other 60's Bowmore that are now coming out, I think the vintage is what is in demand, and the price of that bottle was just a great deal at the time, it is harder to get those great deals now.

To further that point I think 70's Ardbegs will meet the same demand as the 60's Bowmores. Just give it 10 years to catch up.

I've just noticed the HP Lunar bottling, broke the 400 euro mark on the whiskyauction today...which I reckon is aboot £260....I bought 3 for £70 each. :)
