Pick Of The Week: Here’s A Boozy Advent Calendar For Grown-Ups

Remember when you were a kid, and you got to gobble down a little piece of candy each day closer you advanced to Christmas? Heck, I remember that and I’m Jewish. (I’ve always appreciated the holidays of all cultures.) Well, now there’s a way for you to celebrate the approach of Santa Claus‘s birthday grown-up style: with this amazing whisky advent calendar.

For the 24 days leading up to Christmas, you get to open a little door and sample a new 1 oz sip of the devil’s water, including a 50-year-old single malt Scotch. Fancy! There’s also a ginvent calendar, if you prefer gin to the brown stuff. Personally, pretty much the only time I drink gin is around Christmas, because it tastes like pine needles and makes me think of the dance of the sugarplum fairy. Am I the only one?

At $239, the whisky advent calendar isn’t cheap, but just think about all the seasonal joy it will bring. You should probably try not to drink all the booze at once, but I won’t judge you for it if you do. This is a safe space for gluttony.

    I’m making my own. For me and four of my friends. Imagine the looks I got today buying about 80 bottles of tiny whiskey. I should send you guys pictures when I finish them.
