    Wine is also a great investment. Why not?

    If you would have bought a 2005 wine, that would be 15 years older in 2020.

    Carlos Rossi Sangria for the cheap dates.
    A block of cheese and crackers to go with it for the fancy ladies. Whoohoo!

    It is pretty difficult to sell though. Ebay / Gumtree / Facebook won't allow you to sell unless you have a license.

    But you have the problem will the wine keep over the years, and if not you have lost all the value.

    I purchased these a few days ago.
    1 quart bottle of Chivas Regal 12 years and a 1 litre bottle of Johnny Walker Extra Special Black Label that has been stored away for over 30 years
    The Chivas is 43% proof which is a bit different to the current Chivas which is 40% proof
    The Extra Special Black Label has volume contents, however there is no proof % anywhere on the bottle or box which surprises me.
    Even though they say whiskey don't age in bottles, I expect the contents of these to be superior to what's currently available in Dan Murphys
    I don't think I would go wrong with this purchase, bought both for $100

    I ended up buying 3 bottles of the Chivas Regal 12 years @ 43% proof.
    One was in a litre bottle, the second a quart and the third was 750 mls
    The Chivas Regal sold in bottle shops now contains 700mls and is 40% proof.
    Just opened one of the bottles and I was pleasantly surprised at just how good it is!
    I only paid $35 for the 750mls bottle and I certainly wouldn't be ashamed to offer it to my guests.
