As a whisky connoisseur there’s nothing more exciting than the thought of enjoying some fine blends over the coming festive period. Lucky for me, Drinks By The Dram are geniuses and have created both Whisky Crackers and a whisky Advent Calendar.
Let’s start with the whisky Crackers, which are exactly as they sound, fine whiskies placed in crackers. Each box contains 6 crackers complete with 3cl dram, party hat and a crap joke, fare more exciting than the average mini pack of cards or bottle opener!
There are 2 sets to choose from, the Whisky Christmas Crackers (approx. £37)
- Glenfarclas 15 Year Old
- Invergordon 25 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
- Kilchoman Sanaig
- Glengoyne 12 Year Old
- The Epicurean (Douglas Laing)
- Fettercairn Fasque
And the premium Christmas Crackers (approx. £45)
- The Lost Distilleries Blend
- Glengoyne 21 Year Old
- Dalmore 18 Year Old
- Kilchoman 100% Islay 6th Edition
- Highland Park 18 Year Old – Xtra Old Particular (Douglas Laing)
- Glenfarclas Single Cask
Now for the serious whisky lovers, you can’t go wrong with the 2016 Drinks By The Dram Whisky Advent Calendar which retails for around £150.
Highlights among the brilliant drams within this year’s calendar include 50 year old Scotch, brand new releases and the World’s Best Blended Whisky (World Whiskies Awards 2014)! Each dram allows whisky fans to explore new expressions during the count down to Christmas, tasting everything from single grain to rare Scotch worth up to £600 a bottle… Everyday in the count down to Christmas will be a great day!
