These retail for 150/50GBP so this is a pretty decent deal. You will likely need to do home delivery or in store pickup

Updates:
Accoding to Collegiate the whiskey list for Canada differs from the UK one. Keep that in mind.

The tricky part is gonna be limiting yourself to only one calendar per day though.

$140 for 720 ml of whiskey? And most are 8-12 year malts. Unless you place a huge value on variety or else it's not really a hot deal...

The whisky ones that retail for £150 though have much, much older higher end malts in them. A number of 20+ yo single malts. This one in Ontario is most 8 to 12yo stuff with one token older grain whisky thrown in. Quality wise, not comparable at all.

There is still lots of the whisky ones kicking around and I figured I would wait until after Xmas for these to go on sale. Somebody at the LCBO hit the panic button early...

Interestingly enough, this one is also £150 on master of malt. They also have one for £250 that's a lot more interesting, as it should be for that price.
Rather irrelevant, since you can't get other ones in Ontario. YMMV in other provinces.

These advent calenders you're never really getting a great deal but its more less fun to have a variety, try stuff and have a reason to drink them.
