How is it different to last years?

This year it only features 3 repeated products, which is impressive for a whisky advent calendar. I honestly expected this to be the same advent as it's the same design as last year. It's disappointing its the same design and colour, would have been nice to see something new. I am pleased to see new brands in the contents, for a premium whisky advent you'd expect there to be items you've never heard of or couldn't get in the local supermarket. 

Is it worth the price?

Coming down in price to £249.95 you are saving £30 in comparison to last years version. Although worth the price I still find paying £250.00 for an alcohol advent extravagant. In my opinion these advents are for collectors and whisky connoisseurs. 

What do you think of Drinks By The Dram having a premium whisky advent? Do you think they should have a mixed one with all whiskeys?

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...
