good price and would make a nice gift! - use code BF20

The Glass Globe Whisky Decanter is a highly unusual and innovative decanter that will certainly provide a talking point. Crafted from hand blown borosilicate glass in the form of a globe, the decanter can gently spin on an ‘axis’ within its glass cradle. With a generous 700ml capacity and a glass ball stopper with an airtight seal to keep the contents fresh, you can hold the whole world in your hands as you pour your favourite tipple.

Nice idea , shame its cheap looking.

Not sure i see the point in decanting whisky? It comes in a glass bottle that has a label to tell you what it is...

It looks good as a display piece if you get a nice one, and looks smart when you're entertaining?

That's only reason I can think of.

Useless for whisky but maybe Chemistry experiments?

IDDWOOT !

Over time the Scotch evaporates and loses character.

I prefer having my whiskey in the bottles. Would be good if you buy cheap whiskey tho

Looks more like something you'd have handy at the side of ya bed!🤔

Is that why the older stuff is usually more expensive?

Well, yes. The longer it is aged the less is left to bottle so the greater the cost. The particular point 'loses its character' is because, out of the cask, there's nothing to age and it will lose character. In casks, it's maturing and taking on flavours from the air and wood.

Over time in a cask it gains character, it’s called maturation never heard of wood extractives coming from glass.

Cold from me, I don't like whisky. I do like rum however but it would seem it wouldn't go in there for some reason?

...So you can put cheap Lidl/Aldi Whisky in it and palm it off to your guests as super expensive-ultra rare-made by only the first borns of each of the secluded tribes in Angola-using a 1000 year old recipe-type Whisky.

Nothing beats getting pieced in a foreign country every night

Be cool to decant a bottle of red wine in to

Not sure how it might 'lose' character once bottled. I beleive it is best to keep the bottle in its box to prevent light affecting it, not sure if that affects its character or not.

Shame it doesn’t come with the blade runner glass :

£6.01 includes p&p thank you

I think he was referring to open bottle and/or decanted.

You can also home distil which would require a decanter, I don't think there's many people that do nowadays but originally that's what decanters were aimed at from what I understand!
