Rum glasses review
Glassware - rum lovers weapon of choice. An important decision 😁 Do you go for the look, the feel, the best nose...
A quick review of some excellent glasses.
When deciding which rum to use for the test, I figured I'd treat myself with an absolute classic. Foursquare ECS 2005. Yum!
Nine glasses. 15ml of rum in each. Tested over 2 evenings...
Tested and scored for the looks, the feel in the hand, the nose and the mouthfeel.
Really fun to drink from. Definitely forces you to consider what you're drinking. Highly recommended.
Tall thistle Eyes: 3 Hands: 2 Nose: 2 Mouth: 2.5 Total: 9.5 A bit unwieldy to look at, not a great nose, feels very awkward to drink from. Hope you've got a little button snoz if you buy these.
Mini brandy balloon glass Eyes: 5 Hands: 5 Nose: 4 Mouth: 5 total: 19 Looks incredible. Fantastic nose. Feels perfect to drink from. Gold medal!
Vase - not sure its real name. Designed to allow frozen stones to roll round the base. Eyes: 2 Hands: 3 Nose: 1 Mouth: 3 Total: 9 Ugly monster, the shape somehow kills the nose, fits your face well but the glass is a bit chunky. Wooden spoon!
Mini Martell - stolen from a restaurant in Barbados 😉
A beautiful, delicate glass. Decent nose and feels lovely to drink from. Joint bronze medal!
Another awkward little bugger.
Riedel Spirits Glass Eyes: 4 Hands: 5 Nose: 3.5 Mouth: 4 Total: 16.5 A decent glass. Looks sharp. Feels beautifully delicate. A very enjoyable drinking experience.
1920s Blenders Glass
Wow. Just wow. By a country mile this has the best and biggest nose. Quite an incredible difference. A little awkward to drink from hence only silver medal. Buy this glass!
A classic for a reason. Looks good. Noses well. Feels great. Bronze medal!
