I am trying to figure out if Riedel has released a new version of the Bourbon glass. It was my understanding that the "Small Batch" bourbon glass was only available from the JB website, it was from the "overture" line of non-crystal glasses and was etched with the small batch logo on the base. Well the other night I found a Riedel dealer selling bourbon glasses made of cristal and without the small batch logo. Riedel was etched, or rather stamped, into the base. At the same retailer I picked up a new Riedel brochure that listed the bourbon glass as now a part of the "Vinum" lead-crystal, machine made glass series. The glasses sold for $10 each, a little more expensive than the small batch version. So I picked one up to give it a try and I must say I am impressed not only with the look, but the functionality as well. I'll report back on that after some further research
Anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this new line of Riedel bourbon glasses? If you have both, are the new ones worth the extra bucks? Thanks for your help!
