Finishing Casks Used for BourbonNovember 16, 2020
Bourbon and Cigars, A Classy AffairNovember 30, 2020
Although bourbon can be enjoyed in a variety of glassware, there are four that appear to be the best to get the most out of your drinking experience. The Copita or Tulip Glass is a favorite of distillers worldwide. The long stem makes it easier to keep smells from the hands away from the nose, easier to tilt if you wanted to warm the bourbon in your hand and has enough room in the bowl for aromas to come to fruition. If you are not fan of stemware, the Glencairn is a great alternative. Shorter, easier to hold in your hand, and great to perfect the bourbon swirl to release even more aromas. A timeless classic, the Rocks Glass, is used for bourbon or cocktails on the rocks. Its wide physique allows for it be filled with ice and muddle ingredients. The most unique looking glass of all though, is the NEAT glass. Made by mistake, its low and squattier profile with a large base, curved sides and wider rimmed opening allows for more aromas to be experienced, as well as an easier glass to hold in your hand to warm if desired. Whether it is a cocktail or a sipping bourbon, choosing the right glassware will help enhance your drinking experience to its full potential.
