#WhiskySanta has returned with the first spectacular Super Wish of December – and it’s another absolute Christmas corker. This week a lucky someone will receive a bottle of Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old, worth £2,750!
Happy December, my festive friends! The most merry of months has returned, which I’m sure all who remembered to open their Advent calendars will know (particularly if they’re filled with the good stuff). As you can probably imagine, this is the month when I really get in the groove, which is just one of the many things Michael Bublé and I have in common.
But I’ve already got one up on my baritone buddy, as I’ve spent the previous few weeks making this the jolliest season it can be by granting wishes every single day across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. I’ve also been building up to the big month by doing what I do best: frequenting MoM Towers to give away all kinds of wonderful things with orders – be it drams, bottles or gift vouchers, as well as picking up the tab for whole orders! Oh, and I’ve been granting those little things called Super Wishes!
From the Drinks by the Dram Old & Rare Advent Calendar, to the stunning Probably Speyside’s Finest Distillery 50yo 1967, the cracking Craigellachie 31 Year Old and the magical Method and Madness Single Pot Still 28 Year Old, many deserving wishers have been spoiled Super Wish-style! Seeing as the elves and I pride ourselves on making we maintain these Skye-high standards, this week’s Super Wish is… Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old!
Now that’s how you kick of December – your move, Bublé. What an example this beauty is of why sherry and Scotch are a match made in heaven. This sublime Scotch whisky was created by taking Talisker that had been maturing for four decades in refill American oak and finishing it in casks that previously held a spectacular Delgado Zuleta amontillado sherry for around 50 years. Wowzers. Even I’m salivating a little bit, and I’m an omniscient being, for Christmas sake!
Psyched for this Super Wish? Think you’ve been good enough this year to deserve this wonderful winter warmer? Then head to the Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old page on Master of Malt and hit that ‘Wish’ button to wish on Twitter or Facebook, or screenshot and post on Instagram (or G+ if you really fancy). Please remember to make sure you use the all-important #WhiskySanta (my ‘tag) so my jolly chums at MoM Towers can see you.
You have until the end of Thursday to get wishing. It’s for the Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old, people. So why are you still here? Go! Get wishing my friends! And good luck!
Update: Congratulations to Mark Kane, whose wish for a bottle of Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old was granted!
