Nothing quite pairs with a dram like a quiet evening by the fire with “friends”. Now onto the next new installments of the The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar.

Day 18 Secret Spirits: Glenrothes 19yr
I have been on a big Glenrothes kick lately, so I was super excited to see this dram pop up in the calendar. And for it to be a 19yr at 55.6%, I was even happier. It sure didn’t disappoint either. Some warm spicy vanilla notes and pears. A surprisingly delicate but delicious.

Day 19 A.D. Rattray: Williamson 5yr
Oh happy day! Williamson is the secret name for Laphroaig when an independent bottler can’t disclose the origin of a cask. So yeah, I was stoked for this one. And even better, it’s from a sherry cask. The nose is very much a rich bold Laphroaig, and the sherry tries to round it out a bit. But at only 5 yers, this one still has a lot of bite and spice.

Day 20 Creative Whisky Company: Cameronbridge 25yr
I do love a good grain whisky, and this 25yr Cameronbridge from a refill Sherry Butt…. a Lowland, is quite glorious. Honey cereal on the nose with a bright soft finish. Yeah, this one it a keeper.

Day21 Old Malt Cask: Glen Keith 20yr
Cocoa Krispies. I have been nosing this dram for quite some time and just can’t stop. This may be my new favorite from the calendar before even taking a sip. Every nose I get different notes, but a few remain, Cocoa Krispies and s’mores. Ok, now I am really hungry.

As always, be sure to follow along both on my Instagram feed and stories, as well as Jonathan Bray over at SingleMalting to compare our notes. And take a look at the first 17 days here.

“Han: This reminds me of when we helped Luke blow up the Death Sta… Um, Awkward.”
