Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar (2020 Edition) Reviewed

Calling all whisky fans! The moment has arrived – the brand-new Drinks by the Dram Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar has landed and it’s better than ever!  This wonderful calendar offers whisky fans, aficionados and newcomers a spellbinding journey through the best drams out there. Whether you are looking for single malts, blends or rare whiskies, they are all on show. Each of the 24 windows conceals a different 30ml wax-sealed dram of whisky (we’ve listed the contents below), giving you a rollercoaster of splendid and refined whisky flavours all the way up to Christmas.

We were elated to find out that this selection combines some rarer, small batch offerings such as Hinch Small Batch Bourbon Cask, plus some fan favourites, such as Talisker 10 Year Old. The breadth of the range is what is the clincher here, you can experience a true journey across various types of whisky from the comfort of your own home, thanks to this calendar.


The absolutely perfect gift for any whisky lover this advent, there is a host of some truly exciting offerings here. Perfectly packaged, and making for an ideal gift for someone else or a treat for yourself, this is a real showstopper. The luxury calendar market is packed with options, but, even after all this time, we can still say that the Drinks by the Dram calendar continues to be the best of the bunch.
