New-Fashioned Neat Set
The New-Fashioned Neat Set is a contemporary take on the Scottish tradition of serving scotch neat with a small carafe of water. The idea is to slowly dilute the liquor with a little water between each sip. The more water is added, the more subtle notes and aroma comes out. Think of temperature and red wine. If you have ever had red wine that was chilled for one reason or another, you would know that it is just boozy. As the wine is warmed to room temperature, the soft fruit notes, the berry, the tannins all start to become more pronounced and enjoyable. Slowly adding a small amount of water to the bourbon will have a similar effect. It allows you to really get a feeling for the character of each batch of bourbon. Two whiskeys that taste similar neat, will develop distinctly different characters when you start to add water. It is the subtle notes that were masked by the proof of the liquor and slowly revealed as water is added.
This Set comes with two Neat glasses and one Water Carafe. Perfect for sharing a bourbon and good conversation with a friend.
The New-Fashioned Neat Glass...This is the best bourbon neat glass ever invented! What happens when you pour a good small batch bourbon into the glass and drink it? It tastes like a great single batch bourbon! What happens when you pour an exquisitely old single batch bourbon into this glass and drink it? Your mind explodes from the yet-to-be-discovered bliss of the New Fashioned Neat Glass.
This is my take on a modern neat set. Around the studio, I call this glass the Shulip...a shot glass, tulip hybrid. The tulip shape at the top of the glass does amazing things with the nose or bouquet of the bourbon...and if you say “bourbon has a nose?!?” it’s because you haven’t drank the KY nectar out of this glass.
The tulip shape on the top of the glass enhances the aromatics so much that all the more subtle flavors are more noticeable, giving the liquor a fuller, more round flavor profile. The Shulip gives you the familiarity of a traditional whisky-by-the-drink glass in it’s shot glass bottom, with the aroma enhancing qualities of a tulip.
The New-Fashioned Water Carafe holds about 6 oz of water. There is an inset for you thumb and a focused lip that allows for easy and controlled pouring.
The New-Fashioned Neat Glass holds approximately 3 oz of bourbon (as pictured).
The New-Fashioned Neat Glass measures approximately 4" x 2.5" and the Water Carafe is 3.75" x 3".
Hand washing is recommended.
