The Les Impitoyables Whisky Tasting Set – with a uniquely shaped glass, metal chilling base and leatherette coaster – brings out the best in whiskeys and spirits. The mouth-blown glass is tapered, with a narrow top for properly nosing the whisky before sipping. The wide bowl of the glass is enhanced with a central dome. When whisky is poured into the glass, it forms a circle around this dome, preventing the elevation of overpowering alcohol vapors to the nose to enhance the purity of the experience. The metal chilling base cools the spirits without ice.
- The Glass - The whisky glass is designed to enhance all whiskies and eaux-de-vie, such as Cognac and Armagnac. With a distinctive wide bowl, this technical glass will reveal the subtleties in the whisky, bringing out the aromas for an utterly indulgent tasting. To enjoy full benefits, the pour of whisky should be lower than the central dome, which is intended to divide the liquor and prevent an overpowering elevation of alcohol vapors to the nose. Thus, tasting in sheer perfection.
- The Base - The metal base is designed to chill the spirit for at least 30 minutes, without upsetting it or creating a temperature shock that would inhibit the release of the scents, and without the use of ice. For better results, leave the metal base in the freezer for a few hours.
