There are three basic principles for choosing a whiskey glass shape:
1. Changes in the edge of whiskey glass mouth:
The influence on the drinking experience-it is related to which part of the tongue will first come into contact with the wine when it is imported. This small detail will affect the development of the taste experience.
My habit is to subconsciously touch the first drop of liquor with the tip of my tongue no matter what type of cup I use, but spirits with an alcohol content of not less than 40% abv like whiskey can’t be unsweetened, or even very sweet. Besides, whiskey is The complexity of taste changes cannot be compared with wine, and the first contact point between the wine and the tongue is less important.
The importance of choosing a cup shape-the least important or unnecessary factor to consider.
2. Changes in the mouth of whiskey glass:
Impact on drinking experience (1) The more adducted cup shape-the easier it is to gather the aroma released by the liquor, making it easier for the drinker to experience the impact of aroma and amplify the expressive power of various flavors.
Impact on drinking experience (2) The more open the cup shape-weakens the impact of the aroma, making it easier for the drinker to experience the delicate change of aroma.
Importance when choosing a cup shape-the most important consideration.
3. The height between the largest part of the belly of whiskey glass and the surface of the wine after being filled with the whiskey glass mouth:
The influence on the drinking experience-it is related to the contact area of the wine and the air, which determines the oxidation rate of the wine in the cup. Faster oxidation speeds up the changes in the sense of smell and taste experience, and vice versa, the state of the liquor changes more smoothly and softly when the cup is sobered.
Importance when choosing a cup shape-priority is second to important considerations for cup mouth changes.
