Whisky Advent 2018 Day #24: The XL Blend

Christmas Eve has arrived! We’re ready to crack open the final window of the Whisky Advent Calendar, and it seems Drinks by the Dram has gone big for this one. Very big. XL, you could say…

This is it, folks. Christmas Eve has finally arrived! Perhaps you’re completely prepared and frankly you’re just eager for Christmas to occur so you can reap the benefits of being punctual with your roast potato plan like a squirrel that has stockpiled the tastiest seeds, nuts and half-inched crisps right before hibernation. Maybe that’s the complete opposite of your situation and you’re glancing at this blog while on the bus to the shops to try and buy a Christmas present for every friend and family member in under an hour (colloquially known as the Jake Mountain approach here at MoM Towers). Either way, the anticipation of Christmas Day is at its peak, so it would take a very special whisky to appropriately complement these heightened levels of excitement. Luckily, a whisky which fits that description sits right behind window #24 of Drinks by the Dram’s Whisky Advent Calendar.

It’s the first of December – time to tear open window #1 of the Drinks by the Dram Whisky Advent Calendar!

Good news everyone! December has made its grand arrival, and this can only mean one thing. No, not that the Christmas issue of Combat Tractor Magazine will be arriving on my doorstep imminently (though that is true, and very exciting). It means that we can open the first window of Drinks by the Dram’s Whisky Advent Calendar! It has a tradition among many whisky lovers around the globe, and it’s most certainly a thing here at MoM Towers. What lip-smacking dram is hiding behind window #1? Well…

Well folks, we made it. Christmas Eve. The final day of #WhiskyAdvent. The end of 2017’s Drinks by the Dram Whisky Advent Calendar. But the proceedings go out on a high – so it’s not all bad!

If you’re the observant sort, you may have noticed that it’s Christmas tomorrow.

This very exciting prospect is, however, somewhat bittersweet. It means we’re onto our last day of Drinks by the Dram’s #WhiskyAdvent for another year. It’s been some ride though, hasn’t it?

So we find ourselves at the final window, number 24. We’re delighted to report that #WhiskyAdvent is finishing as strongly as it started t(remember that dram of Glenfarclas 25 Year Old?! That now seems so long ago…).

Give me your final drum roll people, as we unveil the final #WhiskyAdvent dram of 2017… It’s The Half-Century Blend!

Whisky Advent Day 19: The Lost Distilleries Blend

Whisky Advent Calendar

We’ll be honest with you, we didn’t think anything Drinks by the Dram’s The Whisky Advent Calendar could throw at us would be more exciting than the release of a new Star Wars movie. (Even with the endless adverts beforehand “make sure you have the official Star Wars mascara” etc.) Not until the final window, perhaps. Wrong, we were, however, as day 19 has provided The Lost Distilleries Blend from The Blended Whisky Company!

Named World’s Best Blended Whisky at Whisky Magazine’s World Whiskies Awards in 2014, it does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a blend of whiskies exclusively from sadly now closed distilleries, many of whom have become legendary such as Port Ellen and Caperdonich. There’s even some Imperial entanglements in there… Yes, the force is strong with this one.

The Lost Distilleries Blend

For those of you not blessed with omniscience or immortality, window 24 of Whisky Advent Calendar offers an exciting opportunity to taste some historic whiskies. And if you do happen to be omnipotent or immortal? Well it’s still an opportunity to taste some jolly delicious old and rare whisky!

The Lost Distilleries Blend was named World’s Best Blended Whisky 2014 at Whisky Magazine’s World Whiskies Awards and does exactly what it says on the tin (or at least the bottle and handsome box). It’s made up solely with whiskies from sadly now closed distilleries, many of whom have become legendary, with batch six containing malt from Port Ellen, Mosstowie, Caperdonich, Glenisla, Imperial, Glen Mhor and Brora, alongside grain from Port Dundas.
