How is it different to last years?

Keeping the same box and design as last year, this advent features 8 repeated products. You would expect to see repeats in an advent like this but it would of been nice some different brands. Again I like the wooden box that these come in but it's a shame that they didn't do a different design this year.

Is it worth the price?

At £9,999.95 its not. Paying under £10,000.00 for alcohol in my opinion is ridiculous. Especially something like this where it comes in as little as 30ml bottles. I could buy hundreds of advent calendars for that price. This is an advent for those who again are collectors or are better off and it's one that they would see the value in but I'm sorry I do not see the value in it myself. 


Would you spend this much on an advent? What do you think of the concept? 

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...
