Poll Result: Do You Collect or Invest in Whisky?

by Oliver Klimek on November 5, 2010

End of October also saw the end of the Dramming poll about your opinion regarding whisky collecting. More than 100 whisky lovers have cast their votes in this poll, 106 to be exact. Thank you for this great level of participation?

And what are the results? I think they are quite interesting:

  1. 34 votes (32%) – I stock up on my favourite drams but drink them all
  2. 27 votes (25%)
  3. 16 votes (15%) – I don’t want to collect but I buy too much
  4. 14 votes (13%) – I want to have as much whisky around me as possible
  5. 11 votes (10%) – I keep some interesting bottles to sell them later
  6. 4 votes (4%) – I try to build up a valuable collection to eventually sell
  7. 0 votes (0%) – I try to make quick bucks by trading
  8. 0 votes (0%) – I collect eveything from a single distillery

The three answers that got the most votes are all from the “consumer” camp. They account for 72 percent of all voters. The whisky collectors are split into two groups of comparable size – the first do it just for the pleasure while the rest consider collecting also to be an investment.

Whisky “day trading” seems to be not very popular, but it could also be that people who do it refrained from casting their vote. After all it takes a little courage to oppose political correctness, even in an anonymous poll.

I was a little surprised that no hardcore distillery collector showed up. They are out there, but their number might be rather small.

Thank you once again for taking your time to cast your vote, and stay tuned for the next poll.
