It is almost October. Time to think and plan ahead for all things Christmas holidays, but above all the type of advent calendar you want. There is a unique and quite a bit pricey version from Drink by the Dram, filled with a collection of spectacular whiskies. The Very Old Rare Whisky Advent Calendar boasts 24 different 30 ml handmade and wax-sealed drams.
The exceptional whiskies they picked for the calendar vary from rare Japanese expressions, extraordinary single casks, a 60-year-old single malt Scotch and long closed distilleries to highly coveted limited editions. If you are to buy some of these blends individually they will cost an arm and a leg – the rare Japanese whisky is worth £19,000 (about $26,000) per bottle. So for $11,250 per calendar, it is a pretty good deal for the opportunity to enjoy some fine sought-after whiskies.
Each Very Old and Rare Whisky Advent Calendar comes in elegant packaging made by Kent cabinet-maker Simon Jewell Designs. Gift-ready and collection worthy, they are offered in walnut and Macassar ebony finishes. In the US, available for pre-order at Master of Malt.
