I finally got a set of four Riedel Bourbon glasses. I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but they really *DO* improve the bourbon-tasting experience.
I had been using single-malt nosing glasses, which worked fine, but now in retrospect they seemed to concentrate the vapors a little too much. These new ones seem just right.
I can see what you guys have warned about though...the stem seems a little thin!
