From the ABOUT section on their website:

"Our founder, a pediatric anesthesiologist, is an expert in the human sense of olfaction. After inventing the scented pediatric anesthesia face mask (U.S. Patent 4896666) he applied his expertise to techniques that could enhance the nose of wines and spirits. Using some simple but elegant principles of physics we first created the Melisse Nosing Wineglass. The logarithmic nosing spiral inside the glass increases a wine’s nose by 100-200 percent each swirl by increasing the surface area on which the wine is exposed to the air and breaking the surface tension of the wine."

There's also an in depth explanation about the procedure of pouring and nosing with graphs and such here: http://www.hinklenosingglass.com/how.html

Pretty neat.

Looks like a freak accident on the 11 oclock news just waiting to happen.

My sentiments exactly. I'm not saying the doctor's design doesn't work as the manufacturer claims, but it looks ugly as sin and goes well beyond my simple needs to enjoy a glass of whiskey.

The only way this could be more ridiculous would be for them to suggest that you buy both a crystal and glass model, so you can taste the unbelievable differences each imparts on the spirit...:rolleyes:

Imagine the random ridicule friends and neighbors would subject you too after you somberly pulled that thing out to have a drink.

"But it's a new paradigm in surface tension."

Definitely interesting. What's the theory behind the narwal horn in the middle?

What.. you don't believe in unicorns?

Finally, a glass that lets you pick your nose and drink at the same time!

Only magical ones that bring me overpriced scotch and cheese flowers.

I wonder if they make a rock lobster version to go with it?

If they do, I'm sure these guys have one:

This is in the same class as those soapstone rocks.

I'll stick to the variety of rocks glasses, Riedel bourbon glasses and snifters I generally use.
