What brand of glass is that Jim?
One of the stemless wine glasses? They seem lousy for wine, but I thought they would be nice for whiskey. Do you like them?
In my opinion, they kick the crap out of the Reidel bourbon glass. YMMV.
That's a nice photo and a very appealing glass, as well. It looks like a combination of the Reidel and the Glencairn.
I agree without even laying hands on the glass you have.
I always feel as though I'm on the verge of snapping the dainty, little stem of my Reidel glasses. When I'm drinking a manly drink, I want the feel of the glass to be compatible.
The box says "reisling/sauvignon blanc #414/15"
They have those all over the place here in Lexington. I'm heading to "The Wine Shoppe" in Nicholasville after work, so I think I'll pick up a set and give them a try.
I think that glass is beautiful. I very recently read that you're supposed to hold the glass by the stem so that the warmth of the hand does not heat up the liquid. But I don't remember if the writer was talking about wine or whiskey or both. But with my recent habit of heating Wild Turkey 101 in the microwave for 8 seconds on cold nights, I can see the advantage of getting a little hand heat in these glasses. Plus I agree with Dave about the feel of the glass in your hand.I always feel as though I'm on the verge of snapping the dainty, little stem of my Reidel glasses.
