How is it different to last years?

With another Drinks By The Dram advent having the same design as last year, the automatic thought of it being the same advent is kind of true with this one. This has 62.5% of repeats, which is one of the highest in an alcohol advent I've seen so far. Although Japanese Whisky is becoming more popular it's still a niche market so I can understand reintroducing some brands or types but it is just too much in my opinion. 

Is it worth the price?

This is increased in price by £15 to £194.95 so makes it not worth the money. Why should you have to pay more for over half of what you got last year? Yes the new brands included are from my research well reviewed but if you want someone to pay more you need to offer more than 37.5% of new products. This would be especially disappointing to those who brought it last year as I remember this being so popular it sold out twice. 

Are you a fan of Japanese Whisky? What do you think of the repeats in design and contents?  

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...
