“Because you can't buy happiness... but you can buy whisky and that's pretty much the same thing”

Ready for Drinks by the Dram's The Whisky Advent Calendar 2015

By Miguel in Tasting

I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like lately mainly because… ummm… eeehhmm…. let me find an excuse :), I still have to write about a few Ardbeg whiskies I have been tasting and about the Laphroaig Live whiskies ( pretty awesome stuff there that nor me nor you will be able to buy )… but well, from time to time you can give yourself a treat like this amazing Whisky Advent Calendar.

Drinks by the Dram Whisky Advent Calendar 2015 is packed with 24 whiskies ranging from amazing to just damn good amazing stuff… I was surprised last year to find only two or three whiskies that they weren’t top stuff… and I am quite happy to see that this year selection is perhaps even better. Here is the list, judge by yourself.

– Glenfarclas 25 Year Old
– Yoichi Non Age / Miyagikyo Non Age
– Compass Box Great King Street – Artist’s Blend

– Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood
– Glen Scotia Double Cask

I am pretty excited to give them a try… but I don’t want to start before Dec, 1st… barely a few days away.

I won’t blog about them in the usual way, I will try to sum them all in three or four posts, but I promise to give you my sincere opinion about each of them and of course, you can get one for you at Master of Malt for barely £149.95 ( that’s isn’t so expensive if you check the whisky inside ). Let me know what do you think.
