The Whisky Advent Calendar Is The Best Christmas Countdown, Ever

Bottoms up.

If Christmas is not your thing, you've probably never heard of an advent calendar. Advent calendars, as we know them today, are basically holiday-themed posters with 24 little doors or windows that are opened each day in a countdown till Christmas. Sometimes opening the door will reveal a sweet image. If you're lucky it'll hold a little chocolate. OR, if you're really lucky, a shot of whisky.

The whisky advent calendar is not really part of the Christmas tradition, but maybe it should be because it is awesome. Twenty-four 3cl samplings of Scottish whisky are housed inside, including a rare 50-year-old Scotch, an award-winning Japanese whisky and one even from a $500 bottle of whisky. We have the Masters of Malt to thank for such an ingenious creation -- and for making our booziest Christmas dreams come true.

There is a catch though: this beautiful calendar will set you back $188. If you're lucky, maybe Santa will come early this year.
