Insider knowledge: The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (2013 Edition) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (2013 Edition) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I bought this for my husband and although it was quite expensive I thought,it was actually priceless.To see the aurprise each day as he opened a new window. (Saving for later enjoyment,of course, mostly?). The best Christmas present I have bought him. The choice and presentation of each dram was superb. Thankyou to whoever made the choices!

Just gave you the first 8 days above, which should give you some directional sense of what's included. Yesterday's (for me) was a Caperdonich Batch 3, and although I looked at today's, I can't remember it off the top of my head.

Please could someone provide additional details on the contents? I am working through the regular calendar and would love to know what the premium has to offer.

hi I really would like to order this or the regular advent calendar for my husband as a Christmas gift. I just want to make sure it ships to the U.S.? I noticed your payment is in euros.
We got this for our attorney and he said there are scotches in there older than him, and he's in his 40's. He LOVED it and said it was the best gift ever in the history of gifts.

Hello! Our range of Tasting Sets (http://www.masterofmalt.com/tasting-sets/) does contain single malts, but unfortunately we don't have something like this in the form of an advent calendar at the moment. --The Chaps at Master of Malt
Have you ever shipped to the United Arab Emirates? There are quite strict import laws on alcohol so wondered if you were able to ship here?

I've enjoyed everything I purchased from you in the past and am hoping you'll post the "Spoiler Alert" which will surely lead to another purchase. Cheers with our very best!

Please tell us what's in it!
I had the standard advent last year and was very impressed and have also bought 50-60 of the 3cl samples in the past. I therefore rang to ask what type of whiskies would be going in this one. Whilst they will of course vary I was very impressed with the list which included some older single casks. I have bought one and I am excited about opening the first window this Sunday.

Hi there! None of the drams in the Whisky Advent Calendar or Premium Whisky Advent Calendar are over 60% ABV, so there should be no issues with the Norwegian border control. In fact, we've had a few orders shipped there already, with absolutely no problems. So fill your boots! --The Chaps at Master of Malt
Due to Norwegian laws, whiskies over 60% are not legal to import. Can you say whether any of the drams in the advent calendar(s) are above 60%?

You have done a spoiler alert for the standard advent calendar. Can you not do the same for the premium? I know that contents may vary due to limited supply. But can you not provide some examples? Then I may buy. :)
