From the product description:



Eliminates nose burn, numbness

Sensual feel, elegant shape

Functional, scientific purpose

Preferred by experts, connoisseurs

For all spirits, aperitifs, liqueurs


I'm not sure about the eliminating numbness claim. I suppose that would depend on how much it's used.

Tim said...

Glad you got the business, but those are some funky-*ss whisky glasses.

I myself prefer the glencairn style, but hey, different strokes....

And who gets nose burn or numbness from a quality Single-Malt?

Even the Lagavulin doesn't do that.

The AHA has determined no commenters were harmed in the making of this blog.

Sorry, but I find it amusing that a wine shop sells "Whiskey" glasses that look like spittoons.

However, I admit I have no taste.

Meade said...

Worry not, Aridog. Make up for it with added scientific purpose.

I drink whiskey (at present, Queen Jennie from the Old Sugar Distillery) from Old Fashioned glasses I stole from my parents' house.

Tim said...

Queen Jennie?

Does she make the nose burn?

Meade said...

"At present"?! 3:53PM, I note.

What you academicians get away with!

Do you people not know the difference between whisky and whiskey? Whiskey is made in Kentucky. Whisky is made in in Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Tennessee.

Nichevo said...

Nonsense, only the Scots make whisky.

Nichevo said...

But you were thinking of bourbon. Only Kentucky makes bourbon. Everyone else makes one or another form or spelling of whiskey with or without the E.

I am quite confident of this, having learned it in my youth, but I just checked a bottle of Bushmills I happen to have beside me and it does have the E.

Tim said...

Ach.

My Irish ancestors added the "e" to distinguish themselves from my Scots ancestors, who couldn't spell.

I just got a gorgeous Fiat Multipla from earning $5,435 this past 4 weeks and a little over $10,000 last month. Its by far the easiest and the most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago, and practically, straight away got at least $81p/h! This is what I do - Wow55.com
