The Whisky Advent Calendar

Monday November 26, 2012 Written by smith

Twenty four days of Christmas. Twenty four closed doors. Twenty four drams of high quality whisky from all over Scotland...

That's the basic and really very self-explanatory equation behind the Whisky Advent Calendar.

The exact contents of the calendar are a surprise – what kind of advent calendar would it be if you knew what was coming up? But there is apparently one shot of 50-year-old Scotch whisky to be discovered in amidst the collection of whiskies from the highlands, lowlands and bogs of Scotland.

At $230, it's outpacing the milk chocolate offerings from your youth but, on the other hand, it does contain a full bottle of some of the best whisky in the world, so there is definitely that. The only real problem is resisting the temptation to just rip the whole thing open on December 1...

(Side note: if gin is more your style, they also have a Ginvent Calendar. Or maybe just buy both.)
