Three words together: Whisky. Advent. Calendar.

I often think and rethink purchases, especially around the holidays.

This one, however, will not be reconsidered for even a heartbeat. Saw it, bought it.

My usual whiskies, the two top faves on my whisky shelf, are, in order of preference:

1. The Balvenie Doublewood 12 year – a clean, tangy Speyside single malt

2. Lagavulin 16 year – a peaty Islay single malt

Each drunk neat, natch. No water, no ice, please, just give it to me straight.

But I am open to persuasion. And along comes this tasty box of delights to discover. Look at those red waxed heads!

December is looking warm, smoky and full of amber fire.

Update: I just ordered this. I will be keeping a log here throughout December of the 24 whiskies!

And on a side note, there is also one for Gin, if you like that sort of thing.
