The 4th Whisky Advent Calendar

Posted November 12, 2015 into Food & Drink by John Birmingham

I can't believe I missed the first three! Why was I not told? WHY!?!

There are 24 little whisky windows to open, of course, and according to the website "highlights among this year’s 24 drams include a rare 50-year-old Scotch, an award-winning Japanese whisky and the World’s Best Blended Whisky (World Whiskies Awards 2014). Each handmade, wax-sealed dram allows whisky fans to sample a new whisky, tasting everything from single grain whisky to rare Scotch worth up to £350 a bottle..."

Anyone think its possible I can buy this Whisky Spectacular for my wife's upcoming birthday and then help her drink it?

I honestly see no problems with this plan.

Only for the small fact that my beloved hates whisky - I know, I know, I left it off the dating survey - but wait, hey I have just booked the immediate family into a Gold Class screening of SPECTRE to celebrate her youthfulness, I could present the Whisky gift to her in the after-glow of Bond.

What could go wrong?

As a woman I see only flawless planning here. Go forth and implement.

Ooooh, that's damn scary. They also have cognac calendars. Good thing I'm po' as right now and will not be indulging. Good thing also that I no live in Canada, Russia, Brazil or Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Pennsylvania or Utah. They get no love...

Some of my definite faves are in there. Jura Superstition, Monkey Shoulder, and two different Balevenies. Noice.

One of my nostalgic ones isn't listed - brand called knockando. Was visiting my sister on the Isle of Mull the year my nephew was born and was sitting in a little pub with her partner's best mate and a bunch of unintelligible fishermen and shouted him a drink. He sheepishly said that bottle at the top (i was on holidays so what the heck). I remember we had a few of them and it tasted fantastic. The bartender was also having a wee dram and nearly destroyed his collection on the wall reaching too high under the influence. Hilarious for us. Him not so - because his wife owned the pub.

This makes the latest Lego Star Wars advent calendar (and a traditional one with chocolates also) pale into insignificance.
