Around the world, whisky- in particular, rare whisky- is known to be one of the most collectable items that money can buy. Not only that, but many bottles of rare 10 year old whisky can be good for your health, as well as being a great investment. There are many ways in which a great bottle of 10 year old whisky could provide multiple health benefits, and we are looking to investigate these today.
Read on and find out how this whisky could be good for your health and for your future.
10 Year Old Whisky
In the whisky industry, bottles which are a decade old are actually relatively common. What people do not know is that in a bottle of 10 year old whisky, there may be spirits from the distillery within that blend which are far older. The age signature, as it is known, on a bottle of whisky is there to signify the age of the youngest whisky in that particular blend. Legally, the minimum time a whisky should spend maturing is 3 years. Therefore, after 10 years the whisky will have had a good amount of time to develop in colour and flavour.
Huge Health Benefits
Whisky has been known to have multiple different health benefits, and some may argue that these are more significant as the whisky matures. Although, that may be an old wives’ tale. However, here are some of the health benefits of whisky which are based on science, rather than a rumour:
- Whisky contains the cancer-fighting ellagic acid which is also found in some wines. This acid can sometimes be found in fruit too and will help your body to absorb rogue cells.
- Whisky, including 10 year old whisky, can help to fight the common cold and ease sore throats. In Scotland, it is most commonly mixed with other cold-curing ingredients such as honey or lemon.
- It could also reduce the risk of heart disease and other heart conditions. Whisky contains huge numbers of antioxidants and will help balance your cholesterol levels, keeping your heart healthy.
Living Longer? Learn to Invest
10 year old whisky can also be incredibly beneficial for your financial health. This is particularly true of the whiskies which were bottled many years ago, or those which are rare. Bottles of whisky are now proving to be a better investment than gold in many cases. It is worth finding a quality or limited edition of 10 year old whisky now, to ensure you will see the returns on your investment in the future.
