Candy was all well and good as a kid, but now that you’re an adult, you prefer something with a little more kick to it. It’s time to upgrade your advent calendar with whisky, courtesy of Drinks by the Dram.
The annual shot-a-day Whisky Advent Calendar is back for 2015, begging you to sample a season’s worth of boozy goodness for the 24 days before Christmas. These aren’t the itty-bitty bottles of mediocre brands you suffer through on flights. Some of these whiskies are almost impossible to find, and can cost hundreds of dollars per bottle.
We don’t want to ruin the surprises, but we will say that highlights from 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).
For once, you’ll be sad when Christmas finally comes.
