Whiskey Advent Calendar Review
This isn’t just you average flimsy cardboard advent calendar that is typically filled with chocolate or candy that you don’t really want to eat. This one is filled with your favorite type of spirits. You will get a sturdy square box with 24 perforated tabs or doors spaced across the front of it, just like you’d see on a typical advent calendar. You open the tabs and there is a very nice little wax-sealed 30 ml glass bottle tucked inside. Out of the 24 samples included, more than half were new to me. They are all neatly labeled and also included the ABV info on each one.
Orca Barrel Oak Wood Grain Drink Tumbler Review
This item is made from your typical industry standard 18/8 Stainless Steel with seamless inner wall. There are a few things that set this apart from the other standard offerings from the major brands in this category. The main one is the way it looks. It’s shaped like a bourbon barrel and my review sample had the oak barrel print applied to it (it is also available in a plain stainless finish as well). There are two rubber gasket rings that wrap around the glass that provide a bit of drop protection and also double as the “hoops” that keep a typical bourbon barrel held together. It’s a nice look.
