Produced by the award-winning Rethink Audio, this season will focus on whisky investment, as seen through the lens of Highland single malt The Dalmore. Over three episodes, Moulton will explore The Dalmore, including its recent record-breaking sale of the Decades collection at Sotheby’s Hong Kong.

The guest list for the episodes includes Jonny Fowle, director and senior specialist at Sotheby’s, investment expert Iona Bain, rare whisky specialist John Barclay, and entrepreneur Arnold Ma. The guests will discuss the relatively new world of whisky investment with Moulton, from the most lucrative bottlings to the challenges around investment opportunities, such as the counterfeit market, crypto currency, and fraud.

Moulton said, “It was an honour to work alongside The Dalmore’s incredibly talented team to host the latest series of the Live from the Sample Room podcast and learn from so many of our guests along the way. Unlocking the doorway to whisky investment has been a fascinating journey and we look forward to our listeners embarking on the journey with us to discover what the world of whisky has to offer.”
