How is it different to last years?

Disappointingly in the same design, you'll only find 6 repeats in the advent this year. It's very surprising to find an alcohol advent with a lower number of repeats that are the well aged ones. I find that collectors or connoisseurs that I always say would like this wouldn't mind those kinds of repeats because you still get a lot of value from them.

Is it worth the price?

Priced the same at £149.95 this is again not to my taste but great to gift as a main present if the person loves brandy. This would also go great with Christmas desserts, if you have a big family or a lot of people round for Christmas in general, picking this up will give more variety.

Are you a brandy fan? What do you think of an Armagnac advent?

I am doing another month of #CalendarCountdown, I'd love to know what you think of all the different advents and you can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. Use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown if you have one of these or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
