So that’s it for this year’s Advent calendar. I have to say the selection was quite superb, I liked especially the French Whisky which was totally not distinguishable for me. I have to say a big THANK YOU to Marco Weber for providing these Advent calendars, as it is lots of work with very less revenue for him! I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as I go dark for some days! Till the next time, all the best and
