Glasses

As a sidebar to Bigmuz'z Whisky Thread - anyone care to share their glassware preferences?

I tend to use different glasses, I think depending on my humour, not the whisky or the situation. For years (before I settled ) I used a very scruffy old Italian tumbler that I found in a flat. Later there were several lead crystal "whiskey glasses" that came free with petrol. I have a Tall Ships 1988 glass that I rather like (good weight and fits my hand/face). I, um, came into possession of a suite of rather tasty Arne Jacobsen glasses that St Catherine's College (Oxford) are probably still looking for - very nice indeed, perfect for whisky worrying nights with company.

Every now and then, when I have a rough dram to worry down, I use the old tumbler. As a nod to the past

Christmas List

I know this should be over on the Christmas List Thread, but this is where the Knowledge is. Mrs willk is once again getting me a couple of bottles from the Whisky Exchange for Christmas. I've requested an Ardbeg Uigeadail and there's room for one more in the box. I can now get my old favourite Caol Isla here, and Auchentoshan, so does anyone have a different suggestion? Something different with a bit of individual character...

Have you ever tried any of the Compass box range? You might be interested in this one Compass Box Whisky - Artisan Scotch Whiskymakers | Limited Editions | Flaming Heart

Glassware vitally important for alcohol consumption, as is good quality ice. For sipping spirits (whisky, good bourbon or rum) a heavy base for stability and a dished bottom to ensure that even small amounts of spirit are gathered together. I have a pair of Habitat tumblers of which I'm rather fond, though if I'm honest the base is rather too heavy for comfort.
