Heaven's above - I've seen some things in my life, but this takes the biscuit!

Get into the Christmas spirit with a dram of delicious whisky every day of December! What could possibly go wrong?

All for the humblingly cheap price of £149.99! With FREE DELIVERY!

How can you refuse? Go on, treat yourself! Cheers!

To quote the site:

"Created for those who hope for a little bit more behind the mystery door; the Whisky Advent Calendar dispenses with cheap chocolate and instead opts for 24 handpicked drams of high quality whisky. Each dram is selected by expert booze-hounds and comes individually labelled and wax sealed.

Plus if you only drink whisky that’s old enough to drink whisky, you’ll particularly appreciate the mystery dram sampled from a barrel of premium quality 50-year-old Single Malt.

Build up to the big day with a whole lot of Christmas cheer(s).

Well, forget the price. This is the deal-breaker for me.

I think I saw this on the master of malt website. I've seen worse in terms of value for money so heat from me
Great idea, just a tad too expensive for me though!

I have a problem every year with advent calendars.

My 9 year old son has a peanut allergy and most calendars say "May contain nuts" except the Kinerton ones (taste like dog chocolates).

I think I've found him, the perfect thing!

Does it contain nuts? oO

I declare thee the winner! xx
'Each bottle contains approximately 30ml (24x bottles)' You don't get one on Christmas day?! I expect my advent calendar chocolate to be twice as big on Christmas day, the same goes for my advent calendar drams of whisky. I shall be buying my whisky advent calendar elsewhere this year.
Love it, cant afford it but love it
Cracking idea tbh, i cant stand whiskey and still fancy a go - if you dont find one you like out of 24 specially picked ones, you know that whiskey isnt for you!

In principle a good idea but massively overpriced especially as there's no way of knowing which whiskies are included.

I'd much rather spend the £150 on 3 very good bottles of malt when I know what I'm paying for!

Agreed, fantastic idea but poorly priced.
TBH, I really want this. The other half sent it to me the other day from Masters of Malt.

if you like trying whiskey, this isn't that expensive IMO, its not unknown to pay £14+ for a measure of a decent tot! .

In my world, it's totally unheard of to spend that on a "decent tot". Speaking as someone on a limited budget, I'd rather have a bottle of something priced to suit my budget than a couple of tots that would remain as a fond memory for the other 364.75 days of the year.

Don't get me wrong, its a lot of money, but on the odd occasion of celebration,its a nice little treat plus who said you need to drink all 25 bottles in the run up to Christmas. you could savour them, over the following year.

It works out a £6 a day, you cannot buy a cocktail for much less in most bars and most people will consume more than one cocktail in a night out.
Lol...... What a laugh,this post is!
Thanks everyone for making this such a fun thread.

Still amazed by cibarious2's find --- so very cool indeed! Kudos to you!

"1 Million USD each and just a single piece per continent".

I've already ordered mine, so which continent are you going to get yours?
hi PD

your find was featured in yesterday's metro newspaper.

article begins "advent calendars used to have just boring old numbers".

can't find it online but it's probably in the digital edition if they still do one.
