Rum glasses

If you want to really enjoy your rum, you need to adjust your rum glasses. The ideal shape is narrows towards the top, a classic cognac glass. Or use a narrower rum and liqueur glasses – these often have a tall stem and have either narrow mouth (like red wine glasses) or widen after a narrow point, forming a tulip shape.

So what we had for the Legendario première was absolutely unfit.

This glass type, on the other hand, is ideal:

It is because the rum smell stays better in the narrow-mouthed glasses, does not evaporate so quickly and thus when drinking, you smell what you’re supposed to smell and it is a part of the tasting experience.

I write this post because I just bought a set of these gorgeous ground-crystal A-CRYSTAL HandMade3 rum glasses. I think you might like them as well. They cost CZK 1391 at the Jenifer e-shop, making it CZK 232 per glass. If you’re interested, feel free to follow my lead 🙂 You may see the glasses in my pictures:

P.S.: The same offer is just at Slevomat for CZK 799, but I am not sure how long it’s going to last.
