Drinks By The Dram Very Old & Very Rare Whisky Advent Calendar 2017

A selection of four whisky advent calendars from Drinks by the Dram. The Whisky, the Premium Whisky, the Old and Rare and the Very Old and Very Rare, which may need a gulp of the good stuff when you see the price! And I'm not even sure you can still call it an advent calendar. Perhaps it's the sort of gift you buy The Duke of Edinburgh when you first spend Christmas with the Royals.

The advent calendars are filled with 24 of the most thrilling whiskies known to humankind, from 50 year old Scotch to superb Irish and American whiskeys. Everything from superb single grains to rare single malts, award-winning whiskies from famous distilleries, from rich Speyside whiskies to smoky Island malts.
