Hand-cut crystal tumblers. Aroma-specific Riedel tasting glasses. Heavy-bottomed 2oz shots. Even the hipster-licious mason jar. What you drink from says a lot about who you are.
Or, maybe, it doesn’t.
Sure, different materials and textures can have an effect on the ways things taste. But what if there’s nothing wrong with drinking your hardy Islay (in our case a poetically-fuelled SMWS number dubbed #53.179, AKA “Jelly-fish on the Rocks”) from an enamel camping mug?
Of course, it goes without saying that even then, as with everything in life, if you’re going to do something, a gentleman always does it to the very best of his ability. And in the case of enamel mugs for supping Scotch with kith and kin, that surely means these double-dipped and rather dashing devils from Best Made Company.
