Glasses; the things that we put the whisky in

This is a simple post of pictures of glasses, they can be fancy, practical and re-purposed sample jam containers. They all serve a function and have there own beauty. Featured are a Spiegelau whisky tasting glass and a Glencairn tasting glass. The Glencairn is the standard for the industry and recognized as such. The Spiegelau is less tapered and more voluminous with a wider mouth. Aestheticlly I prefer the Italian glass, its slightly larger dimensions allow for a more comfortable grasp and the waist is sinched just enough to capture and collect the notes for my admittedly large nose. And the last type of glass is a leftover glass jam jar from a strawberry jam preserve.

So enjoy a simple pastiche of photos I have taken.
