How is it different to last years?

Last year Drinks By The Dram had a very old and rare whisky advent so this is like an alternative version to that. I say alternate because although it's cheaper its still priced just under £1,000! I'm very confused by the design of this advent, the white print on the charcoal looks a little like tread marks and I'm unsure what it is supposed to be. It does stand out but it isn't as festive as other advents by Drinks By The Dram. 

Is it worth the price?

At £999.95 it's not. I'm sorry the contents may be well worth over that but I cannot justify just under £1,000 for an advent calendar of alcohol. I can see this being a collectors ideal advent calendar but even so the whole point of advent calendars is to give you something new to try where you can get a great saving and it doesn't always have to break the bank. This breaks the bank.

Would you break the bank with this? What do you think of advents being this expensive?

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...
