For anyone starting to get serious about whiskey tasting, ice is the enemy. But here's the thing: A warm, neat dram could also be a deal breaker. This clever glass and chiller set serves up an uncompromising solution.
The glass is inspired by a Glencairn, the traditional whiskey tasting vessel, but with a wider bowl and central dimple that fits on the chillable metal base. After keeping the base in the freezer for a few hours, reunite it with the glass, pour, and enjoy newfound dimensions of single malts or complex blends. The base is designed to chill your spirit for at least 30 minutes without undesirable dilution, or temperature shock that can inhibit the release of its palette-pleasing subtleties. Keep your pour of whiskey lower than the peak of the dimple, which divides the liquor to prevent overpowering alcohol vapors from hitting your nose while you taste. The set also includes a vegan leather coaster to protect tabletops from condensation on the base.
