It may be blasphemous to already plan for winter, but there is at least one Advent calendar that is already on sale.
Flaviar’s ever-popular whiskey advent calendar has just been released for pre-sale orders. The Whiskeys of the Galaxy Advent Calendar – renamed from the previous title Whiskeys of the World – quickly sold out in its previous versions. The boxes sold out completely in the other three years they were offered, according to Flaviar.
Whiskeys of the Galaxy offers 24 drams of 1.7 oz whiskey to make December a little more tolerable. This year, the company has doubled the number of calendars it makes available. It’s also a touch-up quality boost with tasting videos accompanying the beautifully designed booklet and âspiral tastingâ cards.
Flaviar doesn’t spoil the surprise by giving away too much of what you’ll find inside, but it does promise “small batches of bourbon, rye, American single malt, as well as whiskeys from Japan and Israel, as well as real stars from Scotland and Ireland. ” In addition to the whiskey and the booklet, the calendar comes with a Glencairn glass and a concrete coaster on which it sits.
He also indicated that the box will include Penelope Bourbon Small Batch Barrel Strength, a bourbon that will be exclusive to this box. You won’t find it anywhere else. (However, you should probably also look for Penelope’s RosÃ© Cask Finish Bourbon Batch 02.) There’s also Wyoming Small Batch Bourbon, Limavady Irish Whiskey, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whiskey, and Kavalan Distillery Select Whiskey, a single malt from Taiwan.
It sounds impressive, but so much good whiskey is never cheap. The box will set you back $ 250, the same price as the 2020 edition. However, if you order during presale, you can get it for $ 225 or just $ 200 if you’re already a Flaviar member.
