Time to open one of those final four central windows of our Advent Calendars. Don't be downhearted though, far from it! Today we're enjoying fantastic spirits such as 12 year old Macallan and Distillers Edition Lagavulin in The Whisky Advent Calendar and The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar respectively...
The Whisky Advent Calendar
The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask or Sherry Oak - the Double Cask 12 year old is Sherry oak matured but uses a higher proportion of American oak Sherry casks then the Sherry Oak release does. Got it?
The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar
Tamdhu 10 Year Old - Speyside single malt Scotch whisky matured exclusively in Sherry casks as part of their revamped and repackaged range (check out their nifty old fashioned bottle design).
The Bourbon Advent Calendar
Jim Beam Double Oak - Kentucky straight bourbon matured in fresh American oak barrels (as it has to be), then refilled into new fresh American oak barrels for a further maturation! Hence, 'Double Oak'.
The Gin Advent Calendar
Filliers Dry Gin 28 - Pine Blossom - The Filliers family have been crafting juniper spirits in Belgium since the 19th century, adding gin to their repertoire in 1928. This is a pine-led variant of that recipe.
The Rum Advent Calendar
Rhum J.M Vintage 1999 or 1992 - Tremendous vintage rhum agricole from the foot of Mount Pelée, Martinique. Aged for around 15 years in ex-bourbon barrels for complex cedar and spice notes.
The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar
Lagavulin 1999 Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition - Heavily peated single malt from Islay double matured in Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. Rich, smoky nut notes, dried fruit and peat. Superb.
The Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar
The Half-Century Blend - Another gem from the multi-award-winning Blended Whisky Company, this is their oldest release with every drop aged for at least fifty years. A window into another age.
The Very Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar
Glengoyne 35 Year Old - More dream whisky today (and every day in this calendar!), with Glengoyne distilled back in the 1970s and matured in Sherry casks. Expect cocoa, leather and dried fruit notes.
