Every once in a while the whiskey snob in each of us get the urge to creep out and savor a moment of presumptuous appreciation of our alcohol filled spirits. Consequently then at a time more suitable to social companionship and tumblers we instead opt for a snobbish, thin-nosed, high-stemmed single malt whiskey glass as if to reside in a higher echelon to our surrounding fellow whiskey drinkers. Well, what if you could pair drinking whiskey neat as a connoisseur would in a thin brimmed glass that was actually a tumbler? What if there was a way you could appreciate the finer notes of whiskey drinking while not looking like a snob and not having to tilt your head back losing eye contact with the chick you happened to start a conversation with that just so happens to look like Scarlet Johannsen’s sister? Well dear friend, Norlan Glass produced a tumbler just for you. We’ve tested it, and it works. Beautifully. What the team at Norlan Glass has done is actually rather clever.
They’ve created a double-walled glass design that combines both a tumbler and a nosing glass. What happens then is the outer wall retains a short heightened tumbler shaped exterior and the inner wall offer the curvature of a nosing glass. Therefore the slick designers at Norlan Glass created a way where connoisseurs could successfully appreciate proper aeration, a more expressive whiskey drinking experience, and aroma focused and directed where the connoisseur expects it to be. The end result is superbly clever. What Norlan Glass has created is a method in which egotistic whisky snobs can appreciate the finer aspects of whisky in an incredibly subtle fashion. So much so where they might even be confused for the casual going, tumbler loving, socially driven whisky drinker. Whichever it is you are, we’re grateful Norlan Glass took the time to design such a glass as sometimes, we too can be a little snobbish. Cheers!
