How is it different to last years?

This is the first time Drinks By The Dram have released a Cognac advent. Cognac I feel is very popular at the moment, it's kind of like Pimms and becomes a drink that everyone will reach for for a time period then it'll die down, then it'll be popular again. It's great that they've offered it as an option this year I just wish that again we saw a different design. 

Is it worth the price?

At £149.95, it is and isn't. There are some very premium brands and that makes the advent worth the price but there are some that when I researched were not part of my local supermarket or were not in my local pubs. Even though they were available online, some people have a try before you buy tendency so I can see why this won't be for everybody.

Are you a cognac fan? Would you buy this 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 advents or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
