Celebrating the Holidays with Whiskey

Happy Holidays Everyone

Hope you are using your time off to grow your beard!

I know it's a bit late to talk about this on Christmas day, but I thought I'd share my experience with my whiskey advent calendar. If you haven't heard of this, let me explain.

The whiskey advent calendar contains 24 small bottles of different kinds of whiskey from Drinks by the Dram. These are 3cl (about an ounce) samples of some of the finest whiskeys you can get your hands on. Ever wanted to taste an expensive bottle of whiskey without shelling out several hundred dollars? This is exactly what you've been looking for.​

Here were some of my favorites:

  • ​Girvan 50 Year Old 1965 (cask 10896)
  • Glen Scotis, Double Cask
  • Glenfarclas, 25 year old
  • Arran, Batch 4
  • Kilchoman Machir Bay 2014
  • Girvan 20 Year Old, 1993 cask
  • Caol Ila, 12 Year Old
  • Isle of Jura Elixir, 12 Year Old
  • The Lost Distilleries Blend, Batch 7

For some reason I received two Tullamore D.E.W. 12 Year Old Special Reserve. I enjoyed both bottles, but it makes me wonder what I missed.

​If you love whiskey (and whisky) like I do, then you gotta get one of these advent calendars next year.
