How is it different to last years?

There is only 1 repeated product in this advent in comparison to last years which is amazing for an alcohol advent. You do find the some of the same brands as last year but different casks or ages. I 100% prefer this design with the Celtic knot pattern across the box like ribbon, it really stands out.

Is it worth the price?

At £149.95 I would say that overall this was not worth the price. You do get the positives of one repeated product, a variety of different ages and brilliant brands. The downside is it's a very niche market, meaning you might gamble with how much of it you'd end up liking. If you have someone that would really want to try this this then you do get the RRP, but I'd look at supermarkets first. You get great offers, especially around Black Friday, meaning you could gift a couple of bigger bottles.

Would you purchase an alcohol advent that's around the £150 mark? What do you think of specific alcohol advents?

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...
