Flaviar Whiskey Advent Calendar

Long story short- I found out about this back in July, pre-ordered a few site-unseen and now I'm experiencing it personally so that I can give candid feedback.

Here's Flaviar's Description:

"Flaviar's Whiskey Advent Calendar gift set is a unique and unparalleled gift for the holiday season for whiskey lovers that turns each day into a whiskey tasting. Each box is a portal to different parts of the world through the flavors and aromas of 24 unique and often hard-to-find whiskeys."

After going through and experiencing the "process" first hand, I frankly I think they nailed it. That is not to say that I don't think it could be improved upon (more on that later).

As you know I think a picture is worth 1000 words...

As you can see, each day has a little "cubby"

Each "cubby" has a numbered 50ml (1.7oz) in it

You also get a tasting glass, notebook with QR code, and coaster

"Flaviar" has an app that you download that guides you through the whole tasting process... (it's intriguingly interactive)

(spoiler alert, the first two product are revealed in the first pic... oops)

Here's my overall take- I love it!

Why? simple, it allows me to better understand not only what I like BUT also , and more importantly, why I like something. It would be extrememly challenging to try and emulate this on your own... not to mention far more costly.

This is a great gift for both the novice whiskey drinker and aslo the experienced whiskey connoisseur. 

Ok- I mentioned earlier that I had some thoughts on how it could be improved. Really only one thought. Remove the concept that this is an advent calander and make it more of a "Worldwide Whiskey Tasting Experience". This is how I'm treating it... I'm planning on going at my own pace (vs one a day).. I've also found that the 50ml is just enough to share the exerience with someone else.

If you have questions about any of this, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Have a great day!
