How is it different to last years?

As you can see the contents say and more which means there may be more than the two repeats highlighted. Nonetheless that is an amazing contents list it's just a little disappointing that they again for another advent went with the same Kraft style design as last year.

Is it worth the price?

The price has increased to £194.95 this year which again a lot of people will be put off by. The unique selling point of this advent is the fact it's single cask and again from my point of view it's another year of seeing brand names that I don't recognise or knew did single cask whiskys. This is worth the money but would be ideal for the collectors or whisky enthusiasts than as a general gift idea.

Are you a fan of Single Cask Whiskys? Would you consider this advent for yourself or someone else?

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...
