PR #29: Master of Malt Whisky Advent Calendars

Hands up who loved the lead up to Christmas as a kid, excitedly opening up their little advent calendar windows, one each day (or more, if you were impatient like me) to get at the chocolate inside?

More than a few of you, no doubt.

You might be grown up now (and if you aren't, you shouldn't be reading this blog!) but that doesn't mean you have to give up the 25 days of joy that an advent calendar brings. Enter - Drinks by the Dram's Christmas Advent Calendars.

I remember a few years ago when these advent calendars were first released - there was only one (or maybe two), and while I really wanted one, I never got around to getting one (I have since sampled many a whisky through Master of Malt's 'Drinks by the Dram' samples however, which form the basis of these calendars).

Fast forward a few years and now there's a whole bunch of calendars - from the basic "Whisky Advent Calendar" (£149.95) to the "Premium Whisky Advent Calendar" (£249.95) and right through to the "Old and Rare Whisky Advent Calendar" (£999.95), which includes goodies such as the 60 year old Speysider (see our tasting notes here), an OB Port Ellen, an OB Macallan 25, an old Glenfarclas Family Cask, a single cask Ardbeg, Brora 35 and more. What a way to spend the leadup to Christmas....

There are even now "Ginvent", Rum and Cognac calendars, and even a "chilli vodka" calendar (the latter we think might be taking it a bit far...). You can see the full line-up of drams in each calendar if you really want to know, or keep it as a surprise.

Calendars are available for pre-order now, with shipping expected by the end of October. The full list of available calendars can be found here.
