Advent Calendar 2021

Hi everyone,

I am trying a new method. Please bookmark this page. I will post the reveal of the whiskey on this page every night and have the Guess Forms and Zoom Links available here as well. This will not be a publicly visible page on the website to keep unwanted Zoom people out, so please bookmark this.

Day 9 Reveal: Boone County Pot Still Straight Bourbon Whiskey (North America, Bourbon, NAS, 47.4% ABV) – This was the first release from Boone County. 74% Corn, 21% Rye, 5% Malted Barley – I visited Boone County in November and was able to grab these bottles for us to taste. I think it’s a great start for them!

Day 10 Reveal: Benriach 12 Year: From Whiskey Advocate who had this as #3 whisky for 2020 – Benriach is a sleeper of a single malt, but that’s about to change. Part of a 2020 relaunch of its core line, this grabbed our attention with its sophistication, breadth of flavors, and lovely refinement. Much of the credit surely goes to master blender Rachel Barrie for creating a smoky whisky that both peat lovers and the peat-wary can enjoy. Rather than medicinal intensity, the peat is redolent of gentle, sweetly smoky fruits that integrate seamlessly with notes of vanilla, toasted almond, chocolate, blueberry, and bacon. It beckons like the wafting smoke of a warming autumn bonfire, then welcomes with its lush and velvety embrace. —Jeffery Lindenmuth – 46% ABV – 12 Years Old – Scotland – Single Malt
