Graham’s 40 years old Porto Tawny

Portuguese products such as Porto, a fortified wine, is highly appreciated, for its exuberant mouthfeel and warm notes of dark fruits, nuts and chocolate. A potential increase of twice the price is foreseen for this type of alcohol. That is, an increase from $180 to $360.

Hennessy XO Cognac

In Manhattan, rumors are that bottles could vary in price up to $400 in the coming months. Other cognacs worth buying are D’Ussé XO, Rémy Martin XO Excellence.

Scotch Whisky The Balvenie and Glenfiddich 40 years

Both whiskies are currently available, albeit at a high cost, for a reasonable price. For example, The Balvenie Single Barrel 25-Year-Old Scotch Whisky will vary in price from $800 to $1500, when we can usually find it for $600. The Glenfiddich 40-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky is currently priced at $4,800 (the limited edition). The tariffs will cause an estimated increase of double the price. That is to say, to reach a value of $9000.
