Usually enjoy a little tipple on Christmas eve?
Or a wee dram after your turkey dinner?
Due to the cost of living crisis, the MO for 2022 festivities may be cheap and cheerful. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out your favourite yuletide spirits – or (even worse) resort to value supermarket brand Scotch!
High-quality bottles of whisky do typically have a hefty price tag. But here at Whisky Tasting Company, we have a way for you to enjoy a few ‘indulgent’ drinks this December, without breaking the bank or maxing out your credit card in the process.
Our brand new Scotch Whisky Tasting Set.
Featuring five beautiful 30ml miniatures, presented in a simple branded box, this is a fabulous little treat to get you in the festive spirit. To buy the whiskies as full bottles would, altogether, cost you around £170 - £180. But our set is available for the discounted price of just £23.95.
Which means, you can still enjoy a Christmas whisky this year. No guilty conscience required.
An affordable Scotch whisky tasting set – perfect for Christmas
Our Scotch Whisky Tasting Set is updated regularly and, depending on when you order, can feature a combination of single malts, single grains and blended whiskies. But whichever spirits you receive, they always share the same two qualities:
They’re the finest Scottish drams and they’re super tasty.
To give you an example of what to expect, here’s what our current limited edition set – available in the lead up to Christmas – includes:
1. Tomintoul Tlàth Speyside Single Malt (40%)
Full bottle price – £30
Pronounced ‘Tlah’, Tlàth means gentle or mellow in Gaelic. And with this single malt, that’s exactly what you get. Aged exclusively in bourbon barrels, it boasts notes of sweet toffee, vanilla, white pepper and nutmeg, and is light and creamy on the palate. Quintessentially Speyside.
It’s the ideal after-dinner dram. Take one sip and settle down to watch your favourite festive film.
2. Edradour Aged 10 Years Highland Single Malt (40%)
Full bottle price – £45
Made at a small distillery in Edradour, this is an endearingly unique single malt.
Aged in a combination of Oloroso sherry and bourbon barrels, it’s very rum-like – with delicious notes of barley and toasted almonds. And is complemented by a thick, oily mouthfeel.
Something different to try alongside the cheeseboard.
3. Tomatin Aged 12 Years Highland Single Malt (43%)
Full bottle price – £45
This is the perfect luxury treat for Christmas eve.
A classically smooth, distinguished dram. Having matured in traditional Scotch whisky, ex-bourbon and ex-Spanish sherry casks, this is a full-bodied single malt – with aromas of wild heather, pine and cedar, notes of crème caramel, apples, pears and mango and a rich and buttery finish.
Get cosy in front of the fire and indulge.
4. Finlaggen Islay Scotch Single Malt (40%)
Full bottle price – £32
Finlaggen is the ‘secret’ single malt, crafted at an unnamed distillery on the island of Islay. Yet, whilst its origins are shrouded in mystery, it has everything you’d expect from a traditional Islay whisky. The aromas and flavours of peat, smoke, dried barley – and the Scottish sea shore.
Too good to share or leave out for Santa. Keep the secret and enjoy this one for yourself.
5. Strathcolm Lowland Scottish Single Grain (40%)
Full bottle price – £25
This is a no age statement release from Angus Dundee’s Strathcolm single grain whisky range. Matured in ex-bourbon casks, it’s an interesting dram – displaying the light floral character that’s typical of grain whiskies, with the added spice, toffee and vanilla notes from the barrel.
It’s light, easy-going and flavourful. One to look forwards to on Boxing Day.
A range of low-cost Christmas whiskies
Further to our limited edition Scotch Whisky box, we have a range of other Christmas whisky sets available for an affordable price. All of which are a nice little treat for yourself. Or would make a fantastic (budget-friendly!) Christmas whisky gift for a friend or loved one.
Our 3 Bottle Single Malt Whisky Gift Set is a particularly savvy choice.
Priced at just £17.95, this features three high-quality single malts (30ml measures), together with individual tasting cards and a whisky tasting mat. And it comes beautifully presented, in a luxury hand-made gift box, which can be personalised with the recipient’s name and a small message.
Our Single Malt Whisky Tasting Set also offers excellent value for money.
This features five carefully curated single malts: Isle of Arran Barrel Reserve, Tomintoul Glenlivet, Glencadam, The Ileach and Mackmyra Brukswhisky. To buy each of these bottles individually would cost in the region of £180. But our set is available for the bargain price of just £29.99! And it comes in a stunning personalised gift box, with tasting cards and a tasting mat.
Worried about buyer’s remorse?
Pretty much everyone is feeling the pinch right now. But that doesn’t mean Christmas has to be ruined. It can still be the season of indulgence, just on a slightly smaller (30ml) scale.
If you’d like to be doubly sure before you spend your money or have a question about any of our Christmas whisky tasting sets, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We’re always happy to help. And after a quick chat about what you like from your tipple – and how much you can afford to spend – we can recommend the perfect Christmas whisky set to get you into the festive spirit (literally), with zero risk of buyer’s remorse.
