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...

Mixing Gin with Whiskey is certain to be memorable!
U still have to pay for goods/services U agreed to — even if U did so only unconsciously.
A Visa Canada survey of web shoppers, 1 in 4 said they read all the online text. 50% skimmed it & 27% Read Nothing at all before accepting a tainted offer.

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.

not sure that the list is correct.

A google search shows that this is the list that's included for 2019:

-Bourbon Whiskey #1 - Batch 1 - 24 Year Old
-Speyside #3 - Batch 1 - 8 Year Old
-New York Distilling Company - Batch 3 - 2 Year Old
-Teaninich - Batch 2 - 11 Year Old
-Blair Athol - Batch 5 - 21 Year Old
-Auchroisk - Batch 7 - 12 Year Old
-Royal Brackla - Batch 1 - 12 Year Old
-Blended Malt #1 18 Year Old - Batch 3
-Blended Whisky #2 22 Year Old - Batch 3
-Strathclyde - Batch 4 - 31 Year Old
-Speyburn - Batch 3 - 10 Year Old
-Longmorn - Batch 3 - 10 Year Old
-Ben Nevis - Batch 10 - 23 Year Old
-Irish Single Malt #1 13 Year Old - Batch 2
-Islay #3 - Batch 4 - 13 Year Old
-Macduff - Batch 8 - 10 Year Old
-Cotswolds - Batch 1 - 3 Year Old
-James E. Pepper - Batch 2 - 3 Year Old
-Tomatin - Batch 4 - 11 Year Old
-Linkwood - Batch 8 - 10 Year Old
-Clynelish - Batch 7 - 21 Year Old
-Heaven Hill - Batch 1 - 9 Year Old American Whiskey

-Cambus - Batch 11 - 28 Year Old


Not too bad. includes some decent drams but nothing too noticeable. For $140 it doesn't look too bad.

That's what I was thinking. Unless I'm missing something, I'd rather get 2 different 750mL bottles of 12yo that I haven't tried yet or even splurge on an 18yo over this set.

24 days of gin because you really hate yourself and have no taste buds.

Gin freshly squeezed from the finest batteries.
