About

Welcome to Whiskystats.net - a blog/portal dedicated to analyse the secondary whisky market.

My name is Johannes Moosbrugger and over the last couple of months Whiskystats became a central part of my free time. In early 2015 I started wondering how the value of the whisky bottles in my shelf changed in time. While there are hundreds of blogs who write about the taste of whisky, I found only few resources which (if at all) cover the technical analysis of historic prices. My first thought was that this is due to a lack of transparency in the global whisky market. To my surprise, most of the online auctioneers publish their historic auction results, there is just nobody who really cares about.

From Local to Global
 
So I started collecting this information. While I have to admit that mapping two or more auction results with different descriptions to the same bottle is tricky, it soon became clear that the collected data would provide some interesting insights. It then dawned on me that maybe other people are interested in these insights too, so I decided to start writing about my results.
 
Your Access to the Database
 
In order to make my results more trustworthy, I soon decided that I want to provide the readers with access to my database. To add another layer of interaction between the user and the data I also introduced the toolbox. It provides the user with a basic set of data-analysing tools which I plan to expand on a regular basis.
