    Riedel Vivant - On sale at Target!

    Riedel's Vivant Bourbon glasses are on closeout at my local Target for $9.98, regular price $39.99. I have always wanted a set of proper bourbon glasses, but never felt like springing for them at $40. At $10 I snapped them up. I don't know if only my Target is closing them out or if all of them are, but it's worth checking if you are even remotely interested...

    PS - We also picked up three sets of two red wine glasses + decanter for $10 each, and a set of dessert wine glasses...

    Re: Riedel Vivant - On sale at Target!

    Thanks for the "heads up", Joel.

    I have to go into town sometime early this week to have a couple 40 pound LP cylinders filled for our space heater and to pay a seat belt
    fine. Gosh, I'm such an outlaw. Anyway, I like the looks of the Riedel Vivant snifters sold at Target. They to, are regularly priced at 40 dollars for 4. Was The bourbon glasses the only item on close out? either way, maybe I'll snag some new glassware.

    My closest Target is in another state!

    Yes, there are Targets in Louisville, but the one in Clarksville, Indiana, is closer to me.

    At our target there were six things on closeout. One was completely gone, no idea what it was.

    (1) Bourbon Glasses
    (2) Tequila Glasses
    (3) Dessert Drink Glasses
    (4) Two red wine glasses with a decanter
    (5) A Decanter
    (6) ???

    We bought a set of bourbon glasses, a set of the dessert drink glasses (called spirits glasses), and three sets of the two glasses + decanter. No need for the tequila glasses or the solo decanter.

    I have thought about driving the 20 miles or so to the next closest target to see what the sixth item was :-)

    Just ran out at lunch and they had one set at the Target by work! They are $19.95 for 4 here but that was still better that $39.99. I grabbed them.

    The 6th item was the Double Old-Fashioned Glasses.

    Which..by the way.....why do they call them 'double' old-fashioned?

    I can't find the Two red wine glasses witha decanter anywhere.

    Stopped at my local Target and they had one set of bourbon left. The red tag said Reg. 49.99 Clearance 27.88 but when I used the customer scanner it said 9.98. Now I have a set.

    Score another victory for Straight Bourbon dot com! I'm glad you guys were able to pick them up instead of someone who might fill them with ... gasp ... Jack Daniels :-)

    Re: Riedel Vivant - On sale at Target!

    Do people like these glasses? I just picked up a set of the Riedel Ouverture Bourbon Glasses from Amazon a month ago. I split the set with a friend. We both have found that our favorite pours are less interesting in these glasses. My normal glass is a smallish snifter that I got from Cost Plus.

    Has anyone tried both the Ouverture and the Vivant? I'm curious if the Vivant is better. For $10, it seems hard to go wrong.
