For our first date anniversary I got Triston a whiskey advent calendar online from Master of Malt. It is a Drinks by the Dram calendar. The company and the size, a nice little shot.
I have read others touting 50cl bottles but to be honest, if you hate the whiskey that extra bit is too much. Also, I had to pay duty on the import of the alcohol so the 30ml x 24 was a much better option for me.
When Triston opened it he said it was hard to get excited because he didn’t know what drinks were inside. I am not sure he has had an advent calendar before, that is kind of the whole point.
We aren’t in Singapore for the first 24 days of December, we leave on the 21st. To avoid importing it with us when we go over for Christmas, Triston has, finally, been convinced to start early.
He thought it was too pretty initially. Plus, he wanted to know what was inside before opening.
Once he decided to go for it, he has issues locating number one.
When he pulled it out, he thought the bottle was too fancy and didn’t want to open the bottle. Kind of a painful gift for me, an advent calendar that will go to waste.
Lola was pretty keen though. With Triston inspecting the bottle she was inspecting the open space and box.
Whiskey advent calendar spoiler alert. Look away now if you do not want to see day 1!
Lola was being super cute, so we went with that for a little while. Triston was still debating never opening the bottle. Lola was going to have a go for herself if he didn’t.
With the bottle and without, she really liked the box and that open number. Usually she isn’t into cat things, nor is she into the alternate. Like if we buy her a toy in a box, she isn’t interested in the toy or the box.
So can I open the next one? Fun, fun, fun!
Kind of mesmerised by her behaviour, we thought maybe she wanted us to move the box because it was in her spot on the couch.
That turned out not to be the case at all.
I am cute, is this for me? My box? My doors, can I open the door?
Hello? You listening? Mine?
I might get her an advent calendar of her own if she likes to play with the doors. Not a whiskey advent calendar.
