Evan Williams Single Barrel

Time to open the third window of our Whisky Advent Calendars and see what surprise lies behind it… why I think this is a bourbon… Yes, it’s Evan Williams Single Barrel Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey!

They’ve been producing Evan Williams at family-owned Heaven Hill since 1959 you know, and it’s named after the chap who was purportedly Kentucky’s first ever commercial distiller. I remember young Evan very well, of course, but as an omniscient supernatural being I’m not allowed to clear up these little historical facts for you I’m afraid. Rules is rules. Besides, there’s some delicious bourbon to taste…

Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey

The second day of Whisky Advent is upon us already and what’s behind the second window of the Whisky Advent Calendar?… Why it’s Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey!

The Teeling family were of course the good folk behind the independent Cooley distillery (creating the excellent Connemara Peated single malt and Greenore single grain, for example) before it was eventually bought by Beam. Fortunately, they weren’t away for long and soon released Teeling Small Batch, a blend of selected casks of Irish malt and grain, finished for six months in ex-Flor de Caña Rum casks! In early 2015 they’ll have a shiny new distillery opening in the heart of Dublin too, one of many new projects on the island.

Forrest Gump and the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar

As the philosopher Tom Hanks always said that his Momma always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

The final winner of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition didn’t know that they were going to receive one of the most supreme advent calendars in existence when they bought a tasting set. It gave them a chance, but the future is tough to see (not for philosophers like Tom Hanks though. Philosophers can see in to the future, right? Or is that wizards? Either way, Tom Hanks can see into the future. And cast spells.).

Drinks by the Dram Rum, Cognac and Tequila Advent Calendars

Once upon a beginning, the folks of the world drew chalk lines on their doors to physically count down the first 24 days of December. These days that seems a rather sad thought, more reminiscent of a prisoner counting the days they’ve been locked up than a celebration of the festive season. Pretty miserable really. (That is, unless you’re lucky enough to share a cell with comedy legend Ronnie Barker!) It was some time before some bright spark decided that using candles would be rather less bleak. I mean, candles, they’re okay aren’t they?

You might be wondering where all the winners of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition competitions are. With a calendar being given away every week in November to lucky winners who purchased Tasting Sets, there should be more winners! We do apologise. With Christmas on its way, we’ve been a bit snowed under getting all sorts of exciting stuff prepared for the holiday season. (Keep your eyes peeled!)

Winning can be tough. Rugby players sometimes get their teeth knocked out to win. Wrestlers have to dropkick everyone in sight to get a taste of the gold. Chess is just difficult to play, let alone beat someone at it. To other people, like this week’s winner of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition, winning was as easy as buying a delicious Tasting Set and letting the prizes roll in.
