Norlan Whisky Glass, Set of 2
Norlan Whisky Glass, Set of
Inspired by nature, digitally crafted, and refined with master distiller Jim McEwan, the Norlan Whisky Glass has been designed to capture whisky's complex flavors and aromatics and deliver them to the senses like never before. The featherweight double-walled structure offers a seamless integration of a scientifically performing inside with an aesthetically beautiful outside, for the perfect whisky drinking experience. Aeration Through specially developed protrusion forms inside the glass - adapted through studying bio-mimicry - when swirled around the glass the fluid forms a standing wave shape, which increases the surface to air ratio and rate of oxidization. The effect here is that considerably more ethanol evaporates allowing the whisky to become significantly more expressive. This feature is an invention of the Norlan glass - no other whisky glass will do this for you. Aroma Focus The second main performance feature is the shape of the inner walls, which close as they rise and then flare out again so as not to hit the nose. The height and diameter of the smallest aperture focuses the aromatics to the nose while simultaneously diffusing the ethanol away from the face, fantastically improving the taste of your whisky. Form and Construction The Norlan glass is a transparen...
