The holidays are a time of joy and merriment – but sometimes you need a little extra help getting there. That is why we’ve created a special list of five flavourful whiskey Advent calendars to bring some jolly to your boozy bashes – or to wow your whiskey-lovin’ friends!
The Flaviar Advent Calendar is for those “cultured” folk that would love to travel around the world just to try different whiskeys but are stuck at home due to snow…or lack of funds. Luckily you can get a variety of 24 different Debutants, classics, Bourbons, Single Malts, Ryes, Irish, Scotch, American, and Japanese whiskeys to try while you daydream of traveling the world. They even topped off the calendar with an adorable reindeer that is cooler than snow.

This next one is for anyone who likes a smokier flavor to their whiskey – the Secret Spirits’ Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar is perfect. Behind each of the 25 doors of this calendar is a Scotch that Secret Spirits says, “has never been tasted before, and will not be tasted again.” Now if that isn’t something special for the holidays, we don’t know what is.

This whiskey calendar from the U.K. boasts having 24 different luxurious whiskeys to taste. They even have a dram of single malt Scotch from all six of Scotland’s whiskey regions. The only setback on this steal is that it can only be sent to certain states in the U.S. – but with the variety it contains, it might be worth the drive.

Featuring 24 little doors filled with different 3cl samples of whiskey, what better way is there to spend the holidays? As an added bonus, Uncrate packed in a sample of a 50-year-old single malt Scotch. Any whiskey drinker knows that a full bottle of something like that would run them upwards of $550! The holidays just got way more festive.
