When Dave from 33 Books developed his Scotch journal and Bourbon tasting journal, he consumed a fair bit of "research" whisk(e)y in the process. Working on the Scotch poster took him further down the rabbit hole. In his right hand was always one glass - the Glencairn Whisky glass, and he has decided to offer it as part of this tasting set.
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, but Dave can tell you from his 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 he finds it holds just the right amount for a good tasting, and feels great in your hand. He's no physicist, but to him, 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 Dave's 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.
Dave 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.
