    Here's a pic of my second favorite glass. It appears that way too many of Jeff's and Tom's vitamins made it into this pour, however.

    Yep, few would think of Fisher Scientific as a source for glassware, but Cliff has hit on one of my favorite pieces of of bourbon paraphernalia.

    Beakers are good, but I find that the Erlenmeyer flask does a better job of concentrating vapor.

    Glassware Poll: Better Living through Chemistry

    As I posted last night, the Griffin beaker is my SECOND FAVORITE glass and the best for bourbon on the rocks, or, more recently, Stagg on a Rock.

    Jim stole my follow-up thunder, however, anticipating that my FAVORITE glass and the best for drinking neat would, indeed, be the Erlenmeyer flask.

    At this moment you can get a set of twelve 125ml Erlenmeyers, with markings in four different colors for $18.48 here. They're great for blind tasting parties. Load up the <font color="red">Red</font> ones with Pappy, the <font color="blue">Blue</font> ones with Hirsch, the <font color="green">Green</font> ones with B'Day bourbon, and the <font color="yellow">Yellow</font> ones with Old Charter Proprietor's Reserver and taste away.

    For a tasting I will usually use a reidel bourbon glass or a brandy snifter.

    For just enjoying some bourbon neat I usually use a heavy crystal on the rocks glass or a heavy 4 oz. shot glass.

    I found my Waterford balloons, yesterday. I think I will give one a whirl, soon.

    Kentucky Spirit or Blanton's?

    Re: Glassware Poll

    Tonight, KS. I visited a new Sichuan restaurant today and discovered a locked cabinet near the cashier in which a bottle of KS was displayed prominently. Upon further discussion with the manager, I learned that this bourbon was reserved solely for the owner. I informed the manager that I could provide her with some rare and amazing bourbon and, to cut to the chase, I think we have a new restaurant at which we will be visiting regularly! The food is fine and the management loves bourbon. Hey, life could be worse!
