I’ve been experimenting with whisky for about a year now. I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly, but it can get expensive. A single serving of Lagavulin is $25. I haven’t even looked at the price for a bottle.
I’ve been sampling the more expensive stuff at a local restaurant called Graydon’s Crossings, but the only have about 8 Scotch’s. I also struggle to know what to look for and ask for.
This year Cate asked me if I’d like an advent calendar. I was wary, because I didn’t want to spend a lot on a bunch of whisky I wouldn’t like, but decided to go for it, and I’m really glad I did. I’m only on day four, and I haven’t actually disliked any. There’s one I wouldn’t buy again, but I drank it all and enjoyed it.
My recommendation is to try this method if you’re pretty new to whisky and want to try a variety without spending a ton.
You can see all of my whisky reviews, and if you want to see all the ones related to the advent calendar search for “advent”.
