Today's standout from my Advent calendar: The Spade & Bushel 12-Year-Old Double Barrel by Connacht Whiskey. This remarkable whiskey marks the second release in the limited-edition Spade & Bushel range by Connacht Whiskey Co. It's a true gem.

Aged in bourbon casks at their warehouse, a mere stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean in Co. Mayo, this unique ageing process infuses delightful flavours of Granny Smith apples, pears, vanilla, and honey into the whiskey. Situated at the meeting point of the river Moy's pure, fresh water and the inflowing salty Atlantic Ocean, the whiskey's maturation undergoes fascinating shifts influenced by the ever-changing atmospheric pressure.
