Advent Calendar Whiskey Drams - I am building my own and need advice!

Hi guys! Anyone else doing a Whiskey advent calendar this year? 

Last year I got my husband a Masters of Malt calendar (on Jim and Aron's rec) and he loved it. It is literally the only thing he asked for this year and of course MoM doesn't ship to the US anymore. So I found a work-around and am going to buy him a selection of Drams from which has a seemingly GREAT selection and ships to the US. My budget is pretty high as this will be his main gift so none of the drams are out of my price range. The issue is which to pick! He likes everything - bourbon, rye, scotches (especially peaty ones), Japanese whiskeys, old and new. Mostly I want to just focus on getting rare/expensive/cool drams that he probably wouldn't try otherwise.

So far I have the following picked out:

  • Ardbeg 10 Year Old 
  • Compass Box Peat Monster 10th Anniversary
  • Bruichladdich 23 Year Old 1990 Black Art 04.1 
  • Talisker 18 Year Old 
  • Isle of Jura Mini Set
  • Glenmorangie 18 Year Old Extremely Rare
  • High West Campfire
  • Redbreast 12 Year Old
  • Green Spot Château Léoville Barton
  • Yamazaki 12 Year Old 
  • Invergordon 30 Year Old 1984 - Sovereign
Advice of others to add? I have been combing whiskey lists and stuff, but I haven't found much for how-tos on building a tasting like this.
