    Michael Jackson Whisky Connoisseur Glass

    I recently bought the new Michael Jackson Whisky Connoisseur Glass for a friend of mine, and neglected to get one for myself. After seeing how dorky the glass looked with Michael Jackson's signature on the base of the glass, I was happy with my decision not to spend the money getting one for myself.

    The glass, however, comes with a lid for holding in the aroma. And my friend is raving about the lid. He says that after leaving the whiskey in the glass for awhile, and then taking the lid off, the smells are unbelievable.

    I suppose one could test that phenomenon by using an extra joker or a 3X5 file card in conjunction with a Glencairn blender's glass or a Reidel bourbon glass. I may just try it.

    In pictures of the Michael Jackson glass, the grip on the lid looks disturbingly like a nipple.

    Here's another idea for you. Riedel bourbon glass with an unused BT Bung.

    Stupid question - does anyone know what retailers carry these Reidel Bourbon tasting glasses? I'd love to get some.

    I'm pretty sure you can get them from Amazon.com, but I've found them for a lot cheaper prices at wine & sprits retailers that usually carry a good selection of wine glasses.

    If they don't have any on hand, but carry the Riedel line of glasses, they can certainly order them for you.

    Ok. The only place around here that I've found carrying the Riedel line was Williams Sonoma, and they were unable to special order the glasses. I would order from Amazon, but I'm just the tiniest bit sketched out over ordering something that fragile through the mail.

    I've ordered two sets from Amazon without any problems. They are packed well in plastic air bags. If I recall a set of four was about $32 and around $42 for the crystal version.
