Rum advent calendar 2019 or 24 days of rum by 1423.dk

Again this year, the Danish masterminds of 1423 have prepared the rum advent calendar. A perfect choice for those who never stopped loving the advent calendars of their childhood. Last year, the rum advent calendar was available at Alkohol.cz which sold thousands of them.

Rum advent calendar of 2019

The choice of rums was made by the pros from 1423 group, who again picked 24 samples. 
Joshua Singh, who invented the whole concept of this calendar, calls it a 24-day “school of rum”.

The first rum calendar, named 24 Days of Rum was introduced in 2015. There were 3000 pieces and all were sold within a week. Since that year, this scenario keeps repeating every year, even though the volume keeps rising. 

Apart from 24 sample bottles, you get your “tasting notes“. A little notebook where you can jot down your notes on the individual rums. The packaging also contains a tasting glass. 2019 brings a change, there are even 2 glasses! So that you can enjoy your calendar better. 

Rum advent calendar as a gift

To have 24 tasting samples of rum, one day each, is a great idea. The rums are picked by someone who does not know your taste, so you get to try rums you don’t know and get the chance of discovering awesome ones (which you would not try otherwise). Those you may purchase in full bottles. I did this last year.

The rum calendar is a gorgeous paper gift box with 26 (24 including rums and 2 with glasses) perforated windows, same as the common advent calendar. This year, there was a colour change – the calendar got an elegant black hue.

In 24 windows, you find a small sample (20 ml) of cane rum for each day from December 1st to Christmas. Every December day, you get to experience a magic rum moment. Each miniature has a simple label and an item in the tasting notes with name, alcohol content and country of origin.

Tips for enjoying rum calendar 

  • the bottles are quite hard to pry out, In my experience you have to shake and tear them out 🙂
  • it is really just a tasting sample, each “bottle” has 20 ml, which is a little under a small shot glass

What was the rum advent calendar of 2018 like? 

Read about my 24 days with rum advent calendar from last year. It confirmed that agricole rums or rums on the bitter side are a problem but I have no issues with strong rums. Yes, I have not finished all the bottles last year. Of other bottles, I would have finished a big one.

What’s new this year? 

New box design, which is now black. And 2 tasting glasses, which make it ideal for couple tasting.
