Whiskey Tasting Set
The Perfect Tasting Set for Scotch and Bourbon
When I developed my Scotch journal and Bourbon tasting journal, I consumed a fair bit of “research” whisk(e)y in the process. Working on the Scotch poster took me further down the rabbit hole. In my right hand was always one glass – the Glencairn Whisky glass, and I’ve decided to offer it as part of a tasting set that includes the following:
My Favorite Whisk(e)y Glass
The glass in this kit was designed by a Glaswegian glass family business expressly for tasting Scotch whisky. Its design has received accolades from big names in whisky, including Michael Jackson* and Her Majesty the Queen.** But I can tell you from my own experience that it works exceptionally well for whiskEy, too. Bourbon, rye, sour mash … yes, even Canadian Whisky tastes pretty good in here.
The shape of the glass is pleasant to look at, but I find it holds just the right amount for a good tasting, and feels great in your hand. I am no physicist, but to me, the tapering top seems to collect and concentrate aroma, similar to the way a wine glass does. The glass is made in Germany at a renowned lead-free crystal factory.
A Set of Whisk(e)y Tasting Journals
The kit you receive will include two of my popular tasting journals: 33 Drams of Scotch and 33 Glasses of Whiskey. The journals each have space to record 33 different whiskies, giving you space for a total of 66 whisk(e)y tasting experiences.
A Delightful Pen
The journals are accessorized with a traditional click-style, American-made ballpoint pen.
I hate wrapping gifts, and believe in making products look their best without wrapping paper. To that end, I designed the box with whisk(e)y barrel-inspired imagery on both the exterior and interior of the box so it makes a great impression. When you first open the box, some tips on how to best taste whisk(e)y are also included, making this a great gift for whisk(e)y newbies, too.
