For the neat drinkers

Post by bbattle » May 21st 2020, 11:42am

I've got a bit of a collection of whisky glasses and always have my eyes open for something new or different.

My latest find is the Norlan glass. It's hand blown, double walled borosilicate glass. Not meant to have ice cubes or stones in it.

Jamesons has never tasted better. I need to get to the store for some nice Scotch and give that a try.

Neat. Sort of like a Glencairn in a glass cage.
Yes, indeed.

I have some Glencairn with the glass tops.

The added width of the Norlan makes it easier to hold and the heat of your hand isn't transferred to the spirits.

I once ordered a single malt Scotch neat and the waiter brought me something in a tall glass with TONS of ice. "What the hell is that?" I politely asked.

I edjumacated him on the definition of the word "neat" as pertaining to whisky.

All of this has me thinking of braving the coronysteria and visiting my local whisky bar.

I drank a bottle and a half of this the other night, and all by myself.

Didn't even need a glass of any kind for the halfsies!

I love nice glasses and to prove it every year at Christmas I always buy myself something that come with 2 nice glasses. Got quite a collection going.

Nice Cod.
I would put up a shot of Soju from my time in Korea, but I really don’t ever want to see a bottle that again. It’s like liquid ambien with a hangover.

My drug of choice in Korea was OB beer and sumthing called Oscar (peach preferred). Simply toss them in the snow on the hotel balcony to keep 'em cold.

Drank every one of those Cod except maybe OB. Sapporo made in Japan and not Canada like today. Lots of Rainier while in the AF. Never had Soju but I have heard stories.

Does anybody remember making your own glasses from beer bottles? Kit came with a glass cutter and polishing papers. Big fad in maybe the 70s. Terrible results usually.

They still sell that glass making kit; I saw one for cutting wine bottles. A Burnzomatic torch could fire polish those edges if you are careful not to over heat the glass.

My brother-in-law did some work for a brewery in Mississippi. While they shipped out 21 beers, they only brewed 19 different ones. No wonder so many American beers taste the same. Oh, and one of the beers they brew in Mississippi is Sapporo.

With the craft beer explosion currently going on, I've tried all sorts of different things; some I don't think should ever be called beer.

Boy, do I ever agree with that!
