Scotch Glassware Experiment

Luke at the Aspiring Gentleman takes a look at how your choice in glassware (or metalware, in the case of the flask) affects how a scotch tastes. In his experiment, he tries Scapa 14, Balvenie Doublewood, and Laphroaig in a flask, a shot glass, a tumbler, a wine glass, and a Glencairn glass, noting the differences in each. You can read part 1 here and part 2 here.

I usually drink scotch out of a Glencairn glass (souvenirs from our visit to Scotland last year, including a Macallan Distillery Tour) or a Riedel Vinum Single Malt glasses, though a flask is handy when you’re on the go.
