Advent calendars: they're traditionally an exercise in disappointment. We spend an entire day waiting for one stale, crappy piece of chocolate. This Whisky Advent Calendar ($240) might just redeem all its tasteless cousins. Instead of a flavorless lump vaguely shaped like a reindeer, each day opens to reveal a nip of sinus-clearing yumminess. One door even hides a taste of a fifty-year-old single malt! Now that's something to look forward to.
