Henry McKenna 10-year Single Barrel Bottled-In-Bond Bourbon blew up in popularity and price after it won awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The same is true for Ben Milam, FEW and countless others. The San Francisco World Spirits Competition helps define what’s hot and will be in demand in the world of whiskey, and it turns out a lot of that comes down to the glassware they use during the event. Enter the Neat “ultimate spirits glass” with it’s Slovakian lead-free crystalline construction and short, stout design. Unlike other traditional tasting glasses that concentrate alcohol and destroy aromas, this glass is specifically designed to enhance smell. As they put it, “Humans detect over ten thousand aromas but only five tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami). You don’t taste raspberries, you smell raspberries and taste sweet. Add mouth feel (oily, dry, temperature, texture, minty, hot) to get total flavor. Flavor = Aroma + Taste + Mouth Feel. Flavor is 90% aroma in spirits.” The best part is that you can taste whiskey like a competition judge from the comfort of your own home because pairs of Neat Glasses are available on Amazon right now for less than the bottle of whiskey you’re going to pour into them.
