    Hi rivasj,
    you are right, this bottle is not displayed at the moment.
    Nevertheless, it is already in our database but has only one price observation (October 2014, 237 Euros).
    As soon as we observe a second trade, it will be displayed and you can add it to your collection!

    Hi JollyPeatman,
    unfortunately it is not (yet) possible to manually add whiskies. Bottles are added to our database as soon as we observe two different trades. Note that at the moment we only consider single malt whiskies since it is them which are most relevant on the secondary market…

    Thanks for the reply, I was wondering why single malt whisky’s are more sought after than single grain?
    Thanks,

    There are, probably, many reasons for this. First thing has to be tradition. The secondary whisky market we observe is a collectors market, and collectors love tradition. It is the Scots “who made whisky drinkable” and throughout the last century world famous. And the traditional scotch whisky is a single malt whisky. Next thing would be image. Many “whisky connoisseurs” believed that single grain whiskies couldn’t be that complex in taste and variety as single malts and that they are just to sweet. Although recent bottlings like the one you mentioned would certainly contradict that, it takes time to change an image. That said, maybe in the future more single grains make it to auctions and we will start tracking them as well.

    Hi Ivo,
    at the moment we are only tracking prices of scotch and japanese single malts.
    However, you can create a custom bottle and enter your own buy-price and latest price.observation.
    If you select “Unknown” as a distillery and type in “Mackmyra” for the Series the bottle will appear as a Mackmyra bottling in your collection.

    Find more details on custom bottles here https://www.whiskystats.net/howto/add-custom-bottles-to-your-collections/

    Best wishes,
    Johannes

    Hi Erik,
    whiskies are added to our whisky database as soon as we have two price observations from different auctions. If you have your own prices you can use “custom bottles” to add this whisky to your collections (see here).

    Best wishes,
    Johannes

    Hello,
    Which databases do you search to be able to grow your list of whisky? Or are you manually entering all tens of thousands?

    Hi Dan,
    each month we collect all the price observations from the auctioneers we track. We then match these observations to the whiskies in our database. So there is no database we directly source our information from, just a list of price observations.

    Hello Whiskystats team,

    I have a whisky that is not in your database.
    Hibiki 21 Year Old Mount Fuji 2nd Edition.
    I was unable to locate it in your database in order to add it to my collection. Please advise. Thank you.

    Hi tigersimba,
    Hibiki is a japanese blend brand and at the moment we are only tracking scotch and japanese single malt whiskies. However, we are currently in the process of adding Bourbon whiskies to our database and later this year we will also add Blends. So Hibiki (and other blend whisky brands) will come soon!

    Best wishes,
    Johannes from Whiskystats
