Investment Bourbons: WTF?

I'm no stranger to the notion of people squirelling away their favorite tipple as an investment I(and is an excellent resource when it comes to that), but this might be going too far.

Men's Journal: Investment Bourbons

The news is in, and, frankly, it’s not good: Aged bourbons are growing scarce, and the remaining bottles are facing price hikes…when you can find the good stuff at all. However, there is a silver lining, as there often is with a limited natural resource: If you know which quality bourbons to look for, you could turn your taste for fine spirits into a way to beat the NASDAQ.
On the other hand, you might want to consider that stocking up on a case or three of high class booze is a clever hedge against inflation. Even if your brand doesn't go up in price due to scarcity and demand, it may well go up due to a weakening dollar. What then?
