If you had to pick two of your favourite things in the world (hint, hint, – think Christmas and Cognac!), can you think of any better way of combining them than with a tot-a-day cognac advent calendar?

Because this is exactly what’s been created for lovers of cognac in the UK, and we have to admit, it’s a really cool way to count down the days to Christmas.

This unique advent calendar has a shot of cognac behind every door, each one from a different cognac house. A good range of cognacs is included, from a basic VS through to Tres Vieux and XO cognacs.

Each calendar contains the following cognacs:

Remy Martin XO Excellence
Frapin VS
Pierre Ferrand Selection des Anges
Cognac Leyrat XO Vieille Reserve
Delamain Pale and Dry XO
Godet VS
Hine Antique XO Premier Cru
Le Reviseur VS
A.E. Dor VSOP Fine Champagne
Maxime Trijol VSOP
H by Hine VSOP
Maxime Trijol XO
– Richard Delisle VSOP
Ragnaud-Sabourin Alliance No. 35 Fontvieille
Daniel Boujou VSOP Grande Champagne
Courvoisier VSOP Exclusif Cognac
A.E. Dor Cigar Cognac
Cognac Leyrat VSOP Premium
Louis Royer XO
Meukow VS
– Gauthier Tres Vieux
Landy VS
Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula
Louis Royer VS

Some great cognacs included in there, we have to say. The only thing we think slightly lets the calendar down is the traditional ‘stuffy’ image on the front. You know, the smartly dressed guy sitting by the fire with a snifter of cognac… Little bit last decade, we think. After all, the cognac industry has done it’s utmost to has dump the ‘dark ages image’, and is now one of the hippest drinks enjoyed around the globe. But we’re splitting hairs now, because for anyone who enjoys their eaux-de-vie, this sure beats pulling out a chocolate a day throughout December!

  1. Took a sample of Glenglassaugh Torfa, as I’d never had anything from the distillery and I’m a geek, like that. I was pleasantly surprised by it and so ordered a bottle of the Revival. Sadly, a sulphurous edge rendered it barely good enough to be added to tea and that’s been that for over a year.

    Took a sample of this, as I couldn’t resist the PX label (a wonderful thing, particularly with peated whiskies) but still wasn’t expecting a lot.

    However, it’s really good. Love the espresso & chilli-chocolate finish – reminds me of the Dalmore 12, possibly my favourite ‘budget’ single malt.
