Stop the presses! Stop the Freshly Presses! This is big news! Egyptian Judicial Strike, Syrian rebels shooting down government MIGs, the Fiscal Cliff noise, Palestinian Statehood, RG3 passing Peyton Manning for most sold jersey…? No! This!
Yes, that’s right, you can forget the cheap chocolate version of the advent calendar and instead enjoy a dram of your favourite tipple each day of the silly season. Frankly if you’ve braved the crowds and been out shopping then you’ll probably need a drink when you get home! Master of Malt offer two versions of the‘advent calendar’ for your sipping pleasure, one for the Gin lush in your life and one for the Whisky drinker.
Now I can’t tell if this is their first year offering this (I’m at work where “adult” sites like MofM are blocked, but this was a must-notify-you-immediately type situation), but it’s definitely the first year I’ve encountered it! I mean, Master of Malt, known for their unique and rare offerings of delicious whiskys from the top producers (all producers, really), providing us with 24 days (or is it 25?) of festive spirits! There are a lot of exclamation points in this post!!!
But what’s not to get excited about? I’m excited! I am pressed to say this may be the merriest of merrys that I’ve ever seen. The advent calendar is retailing for around $240, but considering it’s 24 tastings of excellent whisky; value must be considered. So, if you have a whisky lover in your life and want to get them an early and unique gift, I think you just found your answer. Point of note: Master of Malt also has a Gin Advent Calendar.

Oh, merry day!
