How is it different to last years?

As you can see, I've highlighted a few repeat products. There are similar brands with different ages or types but overall 6 repeats are not that bad when it comes to alcohol advents. The design has a throwback newspaper print containing stories linked to prohibition that has a fade effect in different areas giving a vintage look to it. I think what really stands out to me when it comes to the design is the font used. It coincides to the era with a 1920's Great Gatsby feel. 

Is it worth the price?

At £139.95, you are paying more than other advents the brand offers but in this you do get 70cl & 75cl amounts in some of the bottles. A few of them are stated above but they haven't given the full list of contents so you may get more. This is worth the price when it comes to the contents but again it's the issue of if you want pay that much for an advent. 

Is a Bourbon advent calendar something you'd like? What do you think of the brands used?

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...
