I couldn’t be happier to have been asked by Jonathan Bray over at SingleMaltings and Secret Spirits Co. to be the guest blogger for this year’s Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar. While my girls may be enjoying daily chocolates, I get to enjoy daily rare whisky offerings from independent bottlers. Color me excited. Where most of the action will be going on over on my Instagram via two weekly posts and daily Instagram Stories about each day’s whisky, I will also be updating this blog post with my Instagram posts and notes here and there.

Again, I am quite honored to take part in this Advent Adventure. Stay tuned to see what the Troopers get into over the rest of the month. Be sure to follow Jonathan Bray at SingleMaltings to get his daily take on the whiskies included.

Day1: Old Malt Cask Tamdhu 18yr
Wow, what a way to start off. A bight nose with honey and vanilla cream followed by a palate of delicious citrus which is smoothed out with an ABV of 50%.

Day2: Wemyss Malts Spice King Batch Strength
Spice King indeed. I get a bunch of cinnamon and anise on the nose with some gentle smoke, with salted caramel on the palate that finishes long with a an oily leather finish.

 

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
- – – – – It’s December 1st, and you know what that means. Yup, 14 days till the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Also, it begins the official countdown to Christmas. My girls are counting down the days with their own Advent Calendars filled with chocolate. But thanks to @secret_spirits_co, I get to enjoy a new scotch every day with their wonderful Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar. The best part, these are all independent bottlings, which means a full 25 days of whiskies I have never sampled. Yeah, I am only a little excited. ** Spoiler Alert: I will not be posting main posts like this daily, probably more like 2 times a week. So my posts will contain multiple days. But also follow along in my Instagram Stories for daily pours. – – – -Day1: Old Malt Cask Tamdhu 18yr Wow, what a way to start off.
