The Drinks By The Dram Advent Calendar, Week 1

Those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook will have already seen that I was lucky enough to receive a fantastic Whisky Advent Calendar from the fine fellows at Drinks By The Dram.

I will endeavour to post each day on social media the surprises behind each door but will post weekly updates and reviews here on the blog.

On average my tasting notes for a whisky are about 150 words so I’m going to challenge myself to review the entire calendar in 150 words or less. Here goes. ..
