The must-have advent calendar for every whisky lover

Wow the whisky lover in your life, or make December a little more bright for yourself, with the best advent calendar ever, and you can find it at the LCBO now.

Drinks by the Dram teamed up with That Boutique-y Whisky Company for the 2019 advent calendar, and it’s one of the most original, delicious collaborations I’ve ever tried.

The advent calendar features a festive Christmas display with 24 boxes to open, and tucked inside each box is a 30 ml dram of small batch whisky.

Each advent calendar includes award-winning whiskies from around the world, with clever graphic novel style labels and puns on each one. Some of the whiskies include Scotch, peated and unpeated single malts, aged grain whiskies, and award-winning batches like Teaninich 11 year old and Clynelish 21 year old.

After sampling some of the whiskies inside the advent calendar, it’s easy to love what Drinks by the Dram and That Boutique-y Whisky Company have created. The whiskies offer a taste of something special every day, and they’re all original, unique, and gives a chance to broaden your tastes. The first bottle was a 2 year old whisky, and while I expected it to be wild and untempered, it was absolutely delicious and velvety.

As a little present to yourself, or that whisky lover in your life, this is an incredible gift that keeps giving every day. It’s the perfect after-work present to open with dessert, or to enjoy while you unwind.

While the advent calendar is new to Canada, this is the 8th year that Drinks by the Dram has been making holiday calendars, including varieties with gin, rum, whisky, and tequila.
