That Boutique-y Whisky Company Advent Calendar
Those kind folk at That Boutique-y Whisky Company sent me this cracking advent calendar. I’m not sure what I did to deserve it but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth.
It’s been a while since my last whisky advent calendar; maybe two or three years. It’s a great idea yet, in all honesty, I didn’t manage to enjoy a dram every single day. Sometimes it was easier to save a few up for the weekend and/or share with friends. I guess it doesn’t really matter how you play it as long as you’re sensible and enjoy the whisky at some point.
As someone whose Christmas shopping has been known to involve a scoot around the Booker cash and carry on Christmas Eve, planning for the festive season isn’t really my forte. So it seems odd that I should be suggesting that you start looking at these now. However, it’s only four weeks until the start of December so if you were considering one of these, I guess now is as good a time as any.
The That Boutique-y Whisky Company advent calendar retails for £149.95 and is available from Master of Malt*. All (24) drams are 3cl and include whiskey as well as whisky. Doing the maths, that works out at just over the same amount as a full size 70cl bottle. Would you pay 150 quid for a bottle of whisky? Maybe. Maybe not. But it’s a good way to try 24 different whiskies without breaking the bank; you can try before you buy, so to speak.

Look out for my thoughts on each dram on social media with a wee round up each week here on the blog.
