I'd love to try that Sivo Rye, too. The producer has an interesting story. Unfortunately, there is very limited stock and nothing around me. :(

Hey there Scotch/Whisky drinkers, I have many bottles of unopened items I brought back from vacation. Where would I be able to list/sell them privately?

Anyone know if Dewar's 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky is any good? I'm always wanting to try decent Scotch but god knows the $30-$40 range is a crapshoot usually...

Depending on where you're located I may be willing to take them off your hands

How are you compiling this list, with a script? Very very cool stuff :)
It's a script I wrote using Scrapy (https://scrapy.org/) and Python. Nothing extravagant.

I haven’t had it, but given that it is a grain blend, I would be very weary of it. I recommend spending a few extra bucks, as I find stuff in the $30-40 range always disappoints when it comes to scotch. I recommend -
Naked Grouse $50 -blend of malts only, sherried
Deanston Virgin Oak $50 - nice summery dram
Bowmore 12yo $57 - if you can take some peatiness, on sale right now

Have you come up with one that detects price increases as well? I would love to get my hands on what that works that way also.

I really enjoy these scotch blends:

Pig's Nose (seems hard to come by these days): https://www.saq.com/page/en/saqcom/scot ... y/12729448
Cutty Sark Prohibition: https://www.saq.com/page/en/saqcom/scot ... 4122228592 (don't let the alcohol content fool you, this is very smooth!)

Also for rye I enjoy Canadian Club 100% Rye, it has a nice butterscotch follow and it's very smooth: https://www.saq.com/page/en/saqcom/cana ... 4122330131

Thank you for the suggestions I'll keep an eye out for these!

Prohibition is an amazing BFYB scotch. 50% abv and non chill filtered. Miles better than regular CS. Long gone here in Ontario unfortunately.
