you are right, there could be all sorts of reasons for such an extreme price That is why we usually flag (and hide) them, which we will do with this one too. It’s interesting though that it happened for the Black Art 3.1 and 5.1 (to some degree)…
Mhm, please contact me directly at email@example.com and send me your csv file so I can have a look.
Is this the 11580 you are looking for: https://www.whiskystats.net/whiskydetail/?whisky_id=23506?
To find it I entered “Balvenie 11580” into our database search.
Cannot find the 11581 though. Bottles are added to our database as soon as they are traded on the auction platforms we track…
Great! Thanks for your feedback.
Yes, for the time being, we only include the shop offers from The Whisky Exchange. The reason is that we see this as a prototype to spread the idea and see how people adapt it. So yes, chances are high that we will add more shops at some point in the future!

and yes, first prices for such limited releases can go crazy. This is something we observe all the time, but they usually fall back within the next one or two round of auctions.
thanks for your feedback!
@1: The reason for this could be that you did not enter your purchase price yourself? In this case, it will use the then market price as your “purchase price”. If there are no observations since it happens to be that the latest market price is the same as your “purchase price”.
@2: Actually the Laphroaig Ian Hunter Story #1 is already in our database (here) it just missed the correct title, which I added now. Thanks!
@3: yes there are troubles sharing the internal links. Note that our website will go through a complete rebuilt next year. Details will be announced soon 🙂
Glad to hear that you like what is happening here. Stay tuned, will be worth it!
Yes, there plans to significantly improve Whiskystats next year, which also includes more auction platforms.
I can not talk about details yet, but hopefully within the next couple of weeks…
the displayed prices are the hammer prices + buyers fee!
We include the buyers fee to make prices comparable across the various auctioneers.

You now find Old Perth 2004 in our database (https://www.whiskystats.net/whiskydetail/?whisky_id=75298) together with 18 other Old Perth releases. Thanks for the hint!
you are right, Old Perth is currently not on our watchlist.
Will add it with the next database update and keep you updated on this!
ja wenn das Kaufdatum aktueller als die letzte Preisbeobachtung (Oktober 2019) ist, dann wird in deiner Sammlung der Kaufpreis (falls angegeben) als aktuellster Marktwert herangezogen. Diesen Preis siehst natürlich nur du!
Yes, that initial bottle flipping for ridiculous prices is something we observere very regularly. It is often the case for “hyped” releases like you mentioned the Folio 5, some Highland Parks and so on. Actually when looking at the highest value losers most of them experience exactly that. Prime example is the whole Game of Thrones series. The Lochnagar House Baratheon dropped from over 400 Euros to 30 Euros!
The Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal is now in our database: https://www.whiskystats.net/whiskydetail/?whisky_id=73251.
Thanks for your help!
yes, you are so right. they got mixed up with the Ghost and Rare Port Ellen. Will fix this with tomorrow’s database update and will let you know! thank you
was this bottle traded on any auction?
For the time being we solely track the bottles traded on auctions.
bottles are added to our database when we make an observation on the auction platforms we track. If you spotted this bottle either on WhiskyAuction.com, ScotchWhiskyAuctions.com, WhiskyAuctioneer.com or Whisky.Auction please let me know (share a link to the lot) so I can recheck why our algorithms did not recognize it.
yes although Macallan is the most traded distillery and there existed ~3000 bottles, the M 2016 release never really took off at auctions. We registered only 9 trades, latest one coming from September 2019 for 3421 Euros. It seems like there are only few comparable bottlings so our WPM also gives out a current market value of around 3.500 Euros. It also has only one rating on Whiskybase and there are multiple online shops which have it on offer
(for much higher prices though). So no big audience and not particularly rare neither.
So I guess you will not be able to make decent profit anytime soon.
can you name an example?
We currently track scotch and japanese single malts, most blends, bourbons and ryes from Whisky.Auction, ScotchWhiskyAuctions.com, WhiskyAuction.com and WhiskyAuctioneer.com
So we currently do not track e.g. irish whisky for example.

sorry for my late reply.
Unfortunately it is not possible to import the csv from Whiskybase directly.
Reason is that there is no one-to-one mapping between the bottles on Whiskybase and Whiskystats.
You first need to transform the data to the structure of our templates.
