@Nozinan, well a bottom 1%ile whisky tends to stay that way. I am having some of my 7 years open 90% full bottle bottle of Lambertus 10 yo Single Grain Whisky right now, inspired by your bringing it up. The Lambertus nose out of a Norlan is like a not unpleasant sweet but saccharine cocktail nose. The palate drops into a new dimension of strange-- like sugary reused oakwood. Not good. I cannot say that the Norlan glass makes Lambertus drinkable. Today my bottle of Lambertus tastes better, but not good, out of a Glencairn glass. Lambertus dwells in its own universe.

I received a pair of Norlans as a gift over the holidays. I'm eager to give them a try as I contemplate my first dram of 2021. Any suggestions as to what might work best?

@Nozinan best choice to drink out of a Norlan glass? Anything of which you could say, "That could be pretty good but it's a little rough around the edges."

Norlan glasses are cool for beer drinking too.

A ‘Like’ on an old post brought me back here, it’s been a while.

@Nozinan Enjoy those Norlan glasses, I still quite enjoy mine, though I use them less now thanks to having two young children that love grabbing my drinks off the table.

The last thing I poured in mine was Redbreast 12 CS.

@Mancub Welcome Back! It's been too long. I hope we'll hear more from you. Readbreast 12 CS sounds like a great suggestion.

@Nozinan Thank you! I think I will. I’m just as active in collecting/drinking spirits as ever, life just got really busy for a while (and still kind of is, really). I haven’t forgotten that I owe you a couple of samples :)
