How to choose the best whiskey glasses?

Until now, I have never found a cup that can fully display the flavor of whiskey and can bring a perfect absorption experience. Each cup has its own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, it is easier for me to choose whether to drink purely for enjoyment or pure tasting (which cannot be combined into one in my opinion), or the style, complexity, age, and bottle wake up Differences such as status are used to judge that the original cup is more suitable However, sometimes the judgment will be wrong, so there are also cases of changing cups halfway.

So crystal whiskey glasses,bullet whiskey glass,personalized whiskey glasses like some diy glasses as jack daniels glass?Which is the best whiskey tasting glasses?

There are three basic principles for choosing whiskey glasses shape

1. The change of the whiskey glasses edge

Impact on the drinking experience-It is related to which part of the tongue will be contacted first when the liquor is imported. This small detail will affect the development of the taste experience. My habit is to subconsciously touch the first drop of whiskey with the tip of the tongue no matter what type of cup is used. However, such as whiskey, spirits with an alcohol content of not less than 40% abv cannot be unsweetened, or even very sweet. The complexity of taste changes cannot be compared to wine, and the point of initial contact between the liquor and the tongue is less important.

Importance when choosing a cup shape-the most secondary or unneeded factor.

2. The change of the whiskey glasses mouth

Impact on drinking experience (1) The more cup-shaped collection-the easier it is to gather the aroma released by the liquor, making it easier for drinkers to experience the impact of aroma and amplify the expression of various flavors.

Impact on drinking experience (2) The more open cup shape-weakens the impact of aroma, making it easier for drinkers to experience delicate changes in aroma.

Importance when choosing a cup shape-the most important consideration.

3. The height of the largest cross-section of the cup belly and the surface of the liquor after the wine is away from the mouth of the whiskey glasses

Effect on drinking experience-related to the area of the whiskey in contact with the air, which determines the rate of oxidation of the whiskey in the glass. The rapid oxidation speed changes the sense of smell and taste experience faster, otherwise the state of the liquor changes more gently and softly when the glass is awake.

Importance when choosing a cup shape-an important consideration that takes precedence over changes in the cup opening.

Characteristics of various common whiskey glasses types

Glencairn

Glencairn

The whiskey glasses shape I use relatively is neither characteristic nor much detrimental to the acceptance experience. It is suitable for comparing and drinking the same style or different versions of whiskey.

Bordeaux glass & white wine glass (sherry glass, champagne glass for certain smell)

Bordeaux glass & white wine glass (sherry glass, champagne glass for certain smell)

One of the two whiskey glasses shapes that I usually use.

(1) The ultimate experience of aggravation-whiskey with strong aroma but rich flavor elements such as Ardbeg Supernova, Octomore and other heavy peat flavor or heavy sherry flavor bottling, but if the drinker is strong alcohol, mud Don’t use this type of cup with a more restrained mouth if the atmosphere of coal and barrel is not suitable.

(2) Conventional experience-the style of aroma expression is delicate, elegant and delicate, but it needs to strengthen the impact of alcohol, peat, and barrel-style whiskey, such as the feminine, feminine bottling of Laphroaig, the Macallan’s Traditional style bottling, Glenfiddich’s single barrel vintage bottling, etc.

(3) Sometimes in order to experience the special aroma of certain wines, such cup shapes are used, such as Lagavulin, Dalmore’s orange fruit elements, Ardbeg’s lemon peel and floral elements, Talisker and Brora’s marine elements, and many Speys. The plant and flower elements of the plug and highland distillation plant and so on.

Burgundy glass (Sangiovese glass, certain white wine glasses for specific varieties)

Burgundy glass (Sangiovese glass, certain white wine glasses for specific varieties)

Two of the two whiskey glasses types that I usually use. It can fully demonstrate the complexity and variety of the wine’s aroma performance-the wide and weakly restrained cup mouth softens the impact of alcohol, peat, and barrel-type breath. Oxidation, especially suitable for whiskey with complex and delicate original barrel strength (not too low).

Noble rot glasses (the same goes for tall tulip-type spirits glasses)

Noble rot glasses (the same goes for tall tulip-type spirits glasses)

I rarely use the cup shape. It is a special glass for sweet wine (spirits). The design of the edge of the mouth is to allow the tip of the tongue to touch the liquid when drinking. The belly volume is very small and the height of the cup is low, which is conducive to the smoothness of the liquid. Oxidation. I only use it when I want to appreciate a complex wine slowly and quietly, and occasionally use it for tasting or enjoying high vintages, high vintages or antique spirits (but this kind of wine is actually still more robust It’s so energetic, so it’s almost seldom needed. Of course, all spirits can be used to drink it, and it can be used as a professional drinking cup like the Glencairn cup.

Old fashioned whiskey glasses (tea bowls, bowls and various drinking glasses are the same, as long as they are not too deep or too big)

Old fashioned whiskey glasses (tea bowls, bowls and various drinking glasses are the same, as long as they are not too deep or too big)

I can’t do tasting and enjoyment at the same time. The mentality and the spirit I put in are completely different, but even if the whiskey is excellent and complicated, it is for people to enjoy. This glass will definitely affect the diversity and richness of the aroma, reduce the structure and expressiveness of the aroma, it smoothes all the edges and corners of a glass of whiskey, but it can make the glass of wine smell more rounded and mature, which is for enjoyment. No more, no less.

Choosing whiskey glasses is a very personal thing. Everyone has different thresholds for various types of aroma experience. I cannot evaluate the specific cup type of a brand according to the requirements of some friends. The shape of the whiskey glasses is much more important than the brand, and it is only known after use that which whiskey glasses is best for you.

How to drink whiskey?

Frankly speaking, how to drink whiskey is a big project. If I hit my own face, how to drink whiskey? Drink with your mouth. Indeed, there is nothing to teach or how to learn about drinking. Drink it and feel it with your mouth. But now with the Internet, with a comparison mind, with “step by step” and “learning”, systematically “learning” whiskey has become a learning. I have a knowledge to support wine, but that is limited to people who take this profession, because the industry needs to communicate and needs to use the system to guide guests. But the guests don’t necessarily need it, the guests just need to drink happily and afford it. If the guest’s money is not enough, we will help the guest find a cheaper wine that can meet the demand. For example, if you want to drag a car, you have money to buy a Porsche, no money to buy a BMW, and no money to buy a Mazda. It’s all the same thing. Wine may be high and low, but people are not. Moreover, whether it is a multimillionaire or a street cock, everyone’s true feelings are the same, there is no difference between high and low. Therefore, drinking “not tasteful” wine is just a problem of the wine itself. Don’t use this as an argument. So at this point, I will prepare a brief introduction white paper for everyone, talk about some of your favorite small problems, and let you do some popular science for everyone.

What can I drink and what should I drink?

Whiskey is a refined classification of grain distilled liquor. Around the world, the definition of whiskey is not exactly the same. But basically, whiskey refers to: distilled wine with fermented grains and the participation of malt. Aging process involving oak barrels. Except for some American honey whiskey and laurel whiskey, most whiskeys are also “original”, that is, after the barrel is finished, the whiskey does not add other flavor substances except for blending and downsizing.

But despite this theory, there are actually three main types of whiskey:

Scotch style whiskey, Irish style whiskey ,bourbon.

This point is of course to facilitate the explanation of the problem. For some well-known reasons, Taiwan, China, Japan, India, Australia, Denmark, France and other countries have participated in the whisky brewing. These factories also gradually have products on the market. You can define a Japanese whiskey style, but it doesn’t matter. Does Taiwanese whiskey have its own style, then India? What about Australia? What about Denmark? In fact, Japanese whiskey is Scotch style whiskey. There will not be any “contradiction” in a pile of Scotch whisky. That’s why I say this. Of course, there are indeed special products such as Mizunara barrels in Japanese whiskey, but it is obviously not suitable to be cost-effective-Nantou in Taiwan also has orange barrels and lychee barrels. Scotch whisky is distilled twice, mostly in old barrels, there will be pure malt, and mixed grains; Irish whiskey is distilled three times, mostly in old barrels, there will be pure malt, and mixed grains; Bourbon whiskey uses new barrels, will use such as rye , Wheat, corn and other raw materials, the proportion of barley malt is low. In fact, the difference between Scotch whiskey and Irish whiskey is not big. The biggest difference is the relationship between the two times and three distillations in the process-but in fact many Scottish distillation plants carry out three distillations. If you don’t understand it, you only need to know that the ancestor was Ireland, and later Scotland became the boss for historical reasons. Americans came up with fewer raw materials and used new oak barrels, a relatively low-end imitation called Bourbon. The difference between the two is that first of all, the Scottish-Irish style will be more slender (Ireland is particularly slender); Scotland will have a peat flavor; Bourbon whiskey is sweet, fragrant and rough. But it came to light on the paper. After I had a drink, I understood everything. For Bourbon, the famous Maker’s mark is the masterpiece. If you like Bourbon, you are happy in a sense. The world of Bourbon is not as fancy as Scotch whisky. Those wineries just drink it one by one. There are not many people who can get it in the country. It is very beautiful to have at least some Rye whiskey.

How to choose the best whiskey glass or scotch glass

After all, how to choose the best whiskey glass or Scotch whisky glass is a matter of personal preference, but there are still some important parameters to follow. They are:

  1. Whiskey glass structure
    Like all spirits, premium whiskey should have room for breathing and keep the nose and palate open. Therefore, the best Scotch whisky glass ensures that the liquid is easy to swirl and is not too hidden, nor can you sit at the bottom of the canyon (in other words, do n’t use a glass to drink whiskey). In addition, the shape and texture of the glass is usually the basis of the sensory experience. For example, the thin and curved body of Glencairn glass or slitters can optimize the dotting function. Following a similar approach, you should ensure that the glass is seamlessly drinkable through the round or slightly curved mouth.
  2. Glass texture and characteristics
    An elaborate whiskey glass should feel good in your hands. For this, weight, design and grip are all important.
  3. Whiskey glass appearance
    It may sound superficial, but the best whiskey and scotch glasses should look as good as they feel. In other words: aesthetics are important.
  4. Whiskey glass type
    There are a variety of whisky glasses to choose from, the most popular ones are whiskey, glass, Grankane, highball, tulip-shaped glasses and pure whiskey glasses. Find the one or two glasses of whiskey that suits you best and drink it like a professional. This is a list of whiskey glass types.

The tumbler glass has an immediately recognizable outline. Commonly known as rock glasses, old-fashioned glass or low-profile balls, you will find this whisky glass in every good bar.
The Glencairn glass is the most commonly used whisky glass when tasting whisky. Designed for social drinking, the thicker container allows you to easily move the glass.
Snifter is a short stem glass with a narrow top and wide bottom container.
The tulip glass is characterized by long stems. This is an important addition because it prevents hand oil from coming in contact with the edge of the glass, thus providing a cleaner experience.
Neat glass is the latest stirring drinking technology. The neat glass is designed to elicit irritating vapors from the nose, so that ethanol molecules can escape through the opening naturally, leaving our favorite delicacy.

Why are there so many different wine glasses?

Among the many wine glasses available, you will find that certain shapes of wine are more suitable for enjoying certain types of wine.

By the way, it doesn’t matter if your glass has or does not have stems. More information about the shape of the container is how to collect aroma and deposit wine into your mouth. (I know that some of you fans will strongly oppose it!)

The following summarizes the main glass shapes and wines that perform well in these shapes.

Not a good wine glass at all
Do not. It looks like a wine glass, but it is not.
The first is the first thing. Do you know those glasses filled with glasses? Those are not wine glasses. They are fashionable cups.

In order to taste the flavor of the wine, you really need to leave space above the wine to collect the aroma.

Types of white wine glasses by Wine Folly
A white wine glass can keep the temperature cooler. The other is better at collecting aroma.
White wine glass
White wine is usually served in smaller bowl-shaped glasses. Smaller glasses:

Preserve floral fragrance
Keep cool
Show more acidity in wine
More aroma due to being close to the nose (even at lower temperatures)
You will notice that mellow white wines such as Chardonnay, Vioni, White Rioja and Orange in oak barrels are best paired with large bowls.

Riedel initially referred to it as a “Montrachet” glass, and this larger bowl better emphasizes the creamy texture due to its wider mouthfeel.

Different types of wine glasses considered by Wine Folly
The three main red wine glass shapes help moderately high-tannin wines, exude more aroma or make spicy wines more rounded.
Red wine glass
The choice of red wine glass has a lot to do with reducing the bitterness of tannins or spicy flavors to make the wine taste smoother.

After tasting wine in different glasses for a few years, we noticed that tasting red wine from open glasses tends to be smoother. Of course, the distance from the actual liquid will affect your smell.

Red wine glass shape and wine. Wine stupid illustration
Large “Bordeaux” glass
This glass shape is best suited for bold red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouchet or Bordeaux.

Provides more aroma compounds than ethanol burning away from the nose
Larger surface area allows ethanol to evaporate
The wider opening makes the wine taste smoother
“Standard” Red Wine Glass
Very suitable for medium to full-bodied red wines with spicy and / or high alcohol glass.

The spice will soften because starting from the smaller opening, the flavor will gradually reach your tongue. Try this glass of wine, such as Zinfandel, Malbec, Shiraz and Petite Sirah.

Aroma collector “Burgundy” glass
An excellent choice for lighter and more refined red wines with a light aroma. The large round bowl helps collect all the aroma. Try to use glass shapes like Pinot Noir, Camry, Zweigt, Saint Laurent, Schiava, Fresa, Valpolicella and even Nebbiolo!

Knowledges about brandy

What is brandy vs what is brandy?
First of all, you may wonder what is the difference between brandy and cognac? All brandy is brandy, but only some brandy is brandy. Are you confused? Let us explain further … Cognac is a special type of brandy produced in the Cognac region. Just like champagne that can only be produced in Champagne, France. Cognac can only be produced in the Cognac region of France.

Brandy is a distilled wine made from grapes or fruits (such as wine), distilled and matured in oak barrels. In fact, wine is the first brandy to start, this particular type of wine is not very good for ordinary drinking. The wine must have high acidity, low alcohol content and residual sugar. The wine is heated at rest and the alcohol and wine water evaporates in it. The concentrated vapor is then cooled and condensed into very pure alcohol, which is then matured in oak barrels.

What is the quality brandy or brandy glass made of?
Standard Brandy Glass

In order to fully enjoy the complex aroma and flavor, you need to use a suitable brandy glass to guide the flavor to the right side of your nose, mouth and upper jaw. The best and most commonly used brandy and cognac glassware is whiskey glass. Known for its generous bowl size, it blooms and accumulates aromas and accumulates inside, thus giving drinkers a richer experience. I like this special brandy because the radius varies greatly from the rim to the base. When you raise a glass of brandy to drink, the aroma has a lot of room for expansion. Even if you smell it before drinking, you can easily notice the complex flavor.

How to choose stir glass

Good mixed glass is essential for any home or professional bar. But what should I know before buying? Of course, you should choose a wine that suits your personal style, but in addition to the aesthetic appeal, there are other considerations that will seriously affect your success in making the next stirred cocktail. This is a guide to mixed glass, and a breakdown of all the mixed glass (and mixing tanks) we provide to help you narrow the scope of the best mixed glass.
When to use stirring glass:

For stirred cocktails made entirely or mostly from spirits, liqueurs and fortified wines, such as Martini or Manhattan. You do n’t make things like margaritas or daiquiri in mixed glasses. Cocktails containing large amounts of juice need to be shaken in a cobbler or Boston shaker, rather than stirring in a mixing glass. For more information about when to stir or shake cocktails, please read Happy Hour: What is a mixed glass?
Good stirring glass:

Has a wider base so it wo n’t fall over

Open your mouth for a larger workspace + less splashes to pour ingredients on ice

Durable + won’t break easily

Enough to hold drinks + lots of ice cubes

Sit flat; do not sway while stirring

With nozzle for precise pouring

Straight wall design, can use a tablespoon to stir quickly and smoothly

A
Our blender guide:

First, check this chart to highlight the best function of each of our mixed glass.

Now, take a deeper dive, one dive at a time.

Seamless ordinary stirring glass

Umami Mart’s Seamless Seamless Plain Mix Glass is our most popular mixed glass. Like all our mixed glass, it is made in Japan, but this special glass is designed by FUBU (designed by ourselves). It checks all boxes for good mixing glass-wide mouth, straight walls, heavy base and beaker nozzles-but it surpassed in all departments. Sweethome named it “Best Blending Glass” and said: “Umami Mart ’s Seamless Plain Mixing Glass looks basic, but among the 13 blending glasses we considered and the 5 blending glasses we tested, stir and filter The competition with pouring is better than the competition. Matt is expensive, but its overall balance and ease of use make it worth the extra money. “

Diamond cut hybrid glass

If someone requests a “standard” for mixed glass, we must point out our diamond-cut mixed glass. With a classic diamond-shaped hatching pattern, it is the favorite of professional and home bartenders. Its wide mouth, heavy base, straight wall and beaker nozzle together constitute an excellent all-round stirring glass. And, those deep-cut diamonds mean easier-to-handle mixed glass!

Seamless diamond cut mixed glass

Seamless Diamond Cut hybrid glass is another hybrid glass designed by us. It is a more elegant and advanced version of the above diamond cut hybrid glass. Hand-blown and hand-etched, no seams can be seen on the glass! Its capacity is also slightly larger than standard diamond-cut hybrid glass.

Short-mix glass

We started importing short blended glasses from Japan because our friend Ramen’s bartender Chris Lane liked them very much. He explained: “They have shorter profiles and wider sides, so you can put more ice cubes in them.” The unique shape is a good one for those who want something different from the standard product Choice, but because it is not etched, it is easy to match with any decoration. One thing to note is that since it has no straight walls, you may need to adjust the mixing for the flared wall.

Stainless steel mixing cup

If you are klutz, a stainless steel blender might be your best friend – you will never worry about falling or cracking. However, in addition to its anti-fracture function, its stainless steel body also means that the beverage cools faster when stirred, and the internal ice dilution rate becomes slower. If you need to cool the ingredients quickly, you can even pour this mixing cup into the refrigerator (we do not recommend using it for mixing cups). Although the stainless steel mixing cup is the smallest of all our mixing vessels, it actually has the largest capacity!

Double wall stainless steel mixing cup

Finally, the Yukiwa double-walled stainless steel blender is an upgraded version of the above stainless steel blender. Its insulated double-wall structure makes the beverage colder, even longer, and prevents tin from condensing on the outside. The weight of the cup is heavier than that of the stainless steel mixing cup, so it is unlikely to tip over while stirring.

Should all old wine be poured out? Does old wine need more time to decant?

Contrary to popular belief, pouring out vintage wine is far from iron law. For example, Burgundy is famous for its delicious cuisine, and there are frequent heated debates among experts on whether to decanter wine. However, older wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco in Nebbiolo, as well as Rioja and other mellow wines, are usually strong wines Excellent choice.

If the initial taste of the wine is promising, it may not be necessary to pour the wine. Carefully pour the wine directly from the bottle into the glass. If you choose to pour wine, use a narrow glass carafe at the bottom to reduce the chance of further air integration and wine changes.

A common belief is that the older the wine, the longer it will open. But Mannie Berk made some more specific assumptions.

Burke said: “Before bottling, wines that are exposed to a lot of oxygen tend to respond well to oxygen.”

For Madeira, every ten years of bottled wine must be poured out at least one day.
Those Barolos, Barbarescos and Riojas that respond well to decantation? In most cases, their brewing methods involve large amounts of exposure to oxygen.

The most extreme example provided by Berk is Madeira, a wine that absorbs both oxygen and heat during the production process and is said to be used indefinitely after the bottle is opened.

“If Madeira is in a bottle for a long time, you may want to pour it out a few days to a few weeks before drinking, because it needs to change from an oxygen-deficient environment to an oxygen-recovery environment … I really like it, “he said.

Burke’s rule over Madeira? At least one day for every ten years of bottling.
