Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar by Secret Spirits
When I was a child, we almost always got an Advent Calendar at the start of December. I’m not sure when we stopped doing that, but I guess I “grew out of it”. Now I know better – you are never too old for an advent calendar. As you grow up, what changes is the treats you get every day.
For the adults and the scotch lovers, there is the Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar by Secret Spirits. This is a tasting calendar with 25 different whiskies. Most of the whiskies are single blends, a few are blended malts, single grains or blended scotches. All are aged a minimum of 18 years with a 30 year old gem as the final, December 25th tasting.
Instead of the (corny) cardboard box my chocolates used to come in, this advent calendar comes in a beautiful rosewood box that you can use later to store knick knacks or other fun things. Inside you will find 25 tasting bottles (50ml), a tasting glass, brochure, tasting notes journal and a collectible lapel pin. While I personally don’t have lapels for the pin, I do enjoy putting them on my scarves and bag straps, so that was a nice little touch. The bottles are a nice size as well. Not really big enough for two though, so if you’re hoping to share this tasting experience with your partner or a friend, you may want to consider getting them their own box.
