Advent is the period of waiting and preparation leading up to Christmas. In today’s context, it is a pretty much a time when people go on holidays and social gatherings. In essence, little work gets done. Indeed, every day in December is a celebration and you can make the days even jollier with Whisky Butler’s Christmas Advent Calendar 2016.
Advent calendars have become quite trendy of late. But instead of a voucher, toy or a piece of chocolate, the one by Whisky Butler gives you a different whisky every day.
In total, there are 24 whisky samples. It may already be mid-December, but you can always catch up by drinking more than one dram a day.
“We have a range of Single Malt whiskies to single cask whiskies and even some old blended whiskies are in this advent calendar. Hence, we feel that it is a good way to start your whisky journey with our Christmas Whisky Advent Calendar,” said Benjamin Tan, founder of Whisky Butler.
The highlight, and oldest whisky in the box is the 35YO Glenglassaugh Single Cask Madeira Finish from their “Massandra Connection” range. Essentially, this is a whisky that is finished in casks from the Massandra, the oldest winery in the Crimea. They are known for producing high-quality fortified and dessert wines and most definitely, their casks will impart an extra dimension of flavour and verve to the Glenglassaugh whisky. It is worth noting that the bottle costs S$1,800.
