Your greatest whiskies deserve the best glasses!
You have just acquired an exceptional whisky. But then comes the question that many whisky lovers ask themselves: in which glass should you drink this minor miracle? There are so many spirit glasses! It's difficult to find your way around... Don't panic! Here are some keys to help you choosing a high quality whisky glass!
Whether you simply want to have a good time with friends over a glass of Single Malt, or whether you want to indulge, like a cellar master, in the tasting of great Whiskies, La Table d'Arc offers you a complete range of whisky glasses developed by the expert glassmakers of Arc. Thanks to the wide variety of shapes and capacities offered on our website, you are sure to find the glass that suits your tasting habits. Because only a good whisky glass will be able to reveal all the aromas of your precious nectar. But beware! If the ideal glass does not exist, the technical characteristics of the glass you choose will have a significant impact on the quality of your tasting.
To appreciate the colour, the robe and the legs of your whisky, it is essential to choose a glass with absolute transparency and purity. This purity, coupled with thin walls, allows you to observe all the characteristics of your Grand Cru without altering its colour. Under these conditions, the glass fades away, leaving only the subtle amber shades of your whisky.During tasting, it is in contact with the air that the spirits release their aromas. It is therefore essential to opt for a whisky glass with a base that is wide enough to create a nice oxygenation surface (the surface of the whisky in contact with the ambient air), which is favourable to the development of the aromas.
However, a glass that is too wide would allow the aromas of the whisky to escape. It would then lose its intensity and its aromas would dissipate at the top of the glass. It is therefore important to choose a glass whose neck narrows at the top of the bowl to form a chimney. This particular shape allows the volatile aromas of your whisky to be retained within the glass and provides a subtle balance between power and smoothness: it magnifies and reinforces the aromas of your Whisky and avoids too abrupt alcohol rises on the nose thanks to its high and narrow neck.
