This whiskey tasting glass with chilling base will revolutionize the way you drink your favorite spirits. It features a metal cooling base that keeps the drink chilled for up to 30 minutes while the glass helps reveal the most sublime notes from a wi

Features

  • The glass will reveal the most sublime notes from a wide range of liqueurs including Whisky, Cognac, Armagnac and Rum. Set includes: One Whisky Glass, One Chilling Base, One Coaster
  • The clever metal cooling base is designed to chill the spirit for at least 30 min. and prevent temperature shocks from ice or cold water; for best results, leave the metal base in the freezer for a few hours before using
  • The smaller tapered opening allows for an increased concentration of the scents of the whisky
  • No need for water to open up the whisky; the stylish curves help release the subtle aromas while the central dome divides the liquor and prevents an overpowering elevation of alcohol vapors to the nose
  • Use: the pour of whisky should be lower than the central dome. Care: hand-wash; Warranty: 2 years from purchase

The glasses are great, but the packaging causes issues
by alleycats (1 out of 5 stars)
September 30, 2018

I ordered a single glass to try it out, and it's great. I love it! So I ordered two more and that's where the problems started. The glasses come in cylindrical packaging from the manufacturer which contains the coaster, metal base and the glass. The lids came off during shipping and the contents from both cylinders spilled out into the Amazon box, and the glasses got little nicks from banging around in the box with the metal bases. The dings are unacceptable for a $40 glass, though it's amazing the glasses didn't break. So I ordered replacements. The same thing happened again, except this time there was only 1 glass in the box - 2 metal bases, 2 coasters, 1 glass, completely out of the manufacturers packaging. The glass was scratched so I'm sending it back.

Maybe if you order 1 glass at a time they'll put it in a small box and things won't come undone and roll around the box, but I give up.

I'm a HUGE fan
by LowKey (5 out of 5 stars)

This glass delivers. It keeps the harsh alcohol fumes down, and a nice aroma hits your nose. It brought out some really nice butterscotch notes I never noticed, before, from a 22 year old bourbon. It looks fragile, but my wife dropped it, and it didn't break or crack. I highly recommend this product, and will be trying other glasses from Peugeot in the near future.

Cool idea, falls short on actual cooling power
by Reasonable Consumer (5 out of 5 stars)
August 29, 2019

I finally broke down and got one. Such an inventive idea, I had to give it a try. Cools less than stones, ice, or plastic cubes. I typically drink scotch neat without any cooling, but thought I would give it a trial run, and I could always have it for allowing guests to have a variety of drinking vessels to choose from. I'm not buying a second one for sure, though I consider it a quality product. It's pricey and the cooling is sub par to other cooling, but it will provide a little cooling.

Positives: the chill plate actually gets really cold! So cold in the freezer that it burns the fingers a little carrying it for only 25 feet. When that happened I thought, wow, this is going to chill pretty well (wrong - base warms too fast). It looks cool. Nice design on glass and it nestles well into the chiller. Decent quality on glass.

Negatives: Nothing will get you the same as direct contact to ice for cooling (youtube on some real temp tests). I do not like watering down (I do use a splash to open up scotch once in a while), thus this was the appeal of the Peugeot, but the cooling power is not much. It does cool some, better than no chiller, if trying to achieve a slightly cooler effect. If I really want to cool, I tend to use reusable plastic coated ice cubes (rotate as many as needed), though stones or steel is okay too - ice ball for guests or an occasional change.

This glass and base is nice to have around, but after using it only a few times, I will continue to use my copita and glencairn glasses. I have tried and own many whisky glasses (Peugeot, Neat - Ultimate, Glencairn Crystal, Candadian, and Copita, even Mezcal ceramic copitas, and my own ceramics I threw, I will probably still go get a diamond side lean glass for guests as well [I suspect they are not a valuable taste nuance enhancer]). I reach regularly for the Glencairn with Jar Lid, though I do appreciate my Copita the most for the stem. Glencairn Copita and Crystal give a slight edge to my taste when side by siding them all. So, if you want a great glass, those would be my recommendation.

Had this recommended to me by an avid whiskey drinker and I'm very happy with it.

The base cools quickly and stays cold for a long time.

The coaster is thick and good quality.

The shape of the glass really brings out the aroma of the bourbons and makes for a fun way to really appreciate them.

My friend uses his almost every day. I save it for when I want to take my time properly appreciating something really good.

Great Gift Item
by BoniB1 (5 out of 5 stars)
June 23, 2019

I purchased this glass as part of a Father's Day Gift for my husband. I will be honest, I saw this and quickly looked for a suitable alternative when I saw the price!

Of course, I could not find anything as nice for a better price so I took the plunge and purchased it anyway. He ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT!

It's a really nice glass, and the metallic saucer that the glass sits in is a really nice touch. I'm happy that he's happy, but I still don't understand why this thing is $36! If it was a set of 2 I would understand....but $36 for 1 glass is a bit much.

He's Happy....So I'm happy!

Good buy !
by Amazon Customer (4 out of 5 stars)

I bought this for my husband who loves it and uses it all the time. Will be ordering a few more of these for the house and as gifts. It did take a few tries to get the glass in one piece, I kept receiving a shattered glass and had to return. Took about 3 tries, but had no troubles with the return. They might have to rethink packaging as the container kept opening inside the amazon box, which caused the glass to break.

seems super fragile, but the quality and execution are great
by JD (4 out of 5 stars)

Very hard to clean, seems super fragile, but the quality and execution are great. I'm not sure how useful the metal cooling part is, seems a bit gimmicky but hey, at least it looks cool.

Disappointed pieces missing and containers dented!
by Susan Doyle (1 out of 5 stars)
August 20, 2018

I received the 5 glasses today. Most of the covers to the round containers were off. Only one container was sealed and looked new. Also, 2 of the black coasters were missing. I paid over $170.00 for these glasses that I wanted to give as gifts. This was a very shabby way to deliver. How will I get the missing coasters and undented containers? I can't give as gifts the way they look now because it looks like I am giving used glasses. Please help!!

Beautiful/Functional glass for the aficionado
by Lucas Hernandez (5 out of 5 stars)
August 26, 2019

Awesome glass for bourbon. I use it for the higher proof bourbons that really need to be chilled to properly enjoy. I find that the glass makes nosing more tolerable for those higher proofing bourbons as well. Fit and finish are beautiful, all of my friends ask where I got the glass when the come to visit. I think it works very well with or without the chilling base. My only complaint is that the base only stays cool enough for one drink, after that you've lost the chilling effect. Overall, great product, I would definitely purchase this glass again.

Nice glass, a little better for and a tad bit more cooling action could be nice.
by Scott Pierce (4 out of 5 stars)
February 19, 2018

I like the shape, but it seems like there is not enough contact between the glass and the center peak of the base. So it seems like there could be a little more cooling action if it fit properly. That being said I could still notice a slight temp difference between straight and on the base, just not a lot. I know that it would not cool like ice and I did not expect it to. Just a little cooler would be nice. But overall I enjoyed the experience with the glass.
