Last week I received a package from Master of Malt with their dramcrackers inside. Pretty cool, right?
I’m not sure what to do with it though. Generally, when shops or bottlers send me booze they want a review of it on my blog. This time though, the Dramcrackers pack seems to be focused on drinking some nice, but fairly random drams. With family, during Christmas, for example.
This gives me a bit of a dilemma. On one hand I want to oblige Master of Malt by reviewing the booze inside (some malt whisky, some gin, some brandy, a bourbon and a sloe gin). On the other hand I would love nothing more than to get with the general idea of the dramcrackers and just pop them open over the festive season with my brother in law and see what everything is about.
The drawback of that (if you can call it that) is that I refrain from writing notes. I try to be sort of conscious about what I’m tasting, but there will be no note-writing at the dinner table.
So, I want to give a shout out to Master of Malt for sending me this cool package. It really pops! (worst pun ever…). There’s even going to be some kind of competition in old fashioned wild west duel style, with movies on Youtube and such! Pretty awesome!
The contents of the pack are the following, and at some € 48 it seems to be fairly priced and would make a cool Christmas gift. Although you’d need some seriously massive feet if this would fit your stocking.
– Bathtub Gin
– Arran – Batch 3 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
– Bathtub Gin – Sloe Gin 2014
– Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7 Year Old Bourbon
– Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Cherry Brandy 2014
Really looking forward to all of them!
The Dramcracker pack is available from Master of Malt at £ 37.95 / € 48
Full disclosure: Master of Malt sent me a pack of this, free of charge. Thanks a million, dudes!
