GSN Review: Neat “The Experience” Spirits Tasting Glass

image011Most of us have a decent selection of glassware at home.  Cocktail coupes, Martini style glasses, rocks glasses, Collins glasses, and so on.  But, most likely very few “tasting” glasses.  Something designed so that you can truly experience all that a spirit has to offer.

A few years ago, GSN received a product crafted to enhance spirits reviewing and judging.  You can read my thoughts on the original NEAT glass here.

The company has now come out with an updated, more classy version called “The Experience”.  I put the two side by side and compared them.

The first and most important aspect of the upgraded model is the rim of the glass is smooth and without the previous lip.  The base is also more rounded and less curved, making it easier to hold when warming the glass with your hand  Lastly, the weight of the glass is slightly heavier, giving it a more sturdy feel and stability.  The Chrystalyn™ crystal formulation has also been reformulated to make it 100% lead-free.  All of these serve to improve upon the original design in my opinion.
