There are a ton of collectible whiskey decanters out there, and there are even some that can be personalized along with personalized whiskey decanter glasses to match, but I’d be willing to say your friends don’t have a set. Or more accurately,  <5% of your friends have a set. Have you even been in a man cave with some? Heck, have you been in a man cave? This can be a great place to call “you”, and these little additions you bring help create that experience for visitors.

The decanter look is really a form of art. Fine glass sitting atop a mirror displaying unique tones of ochre or burnt umber in their near purest pigments. The winsors and cadmiums to be displayed for all historians whether they know it or not, the beauty of these colors are captivating and draw an eye. They become a center-piece  of attention that are striking to three senses dare you indulge, sight, taste, and smell. Here is a set with personalized whiskey decanter glasses to match:

I’ve done a bunch of research here that is enough to provide all of you Gents with the appropriate details that you need to know. Keep it simple and don’t over-complicate it. I won’t call myself an expert by any means as there are clearly some real magnifique connisseurs out there that are not to be messed with… So in keeping it short, here is my presentation of some valuable information and places to start.

There are 3 Absolute Considerations here in Selecting your Decanter

First off, the decanter needs to have a seal that is worthy of retaining a good seal. Actually, not that tight, but we don’t really want too much air exchange.  We don’t need to worry about oxidation of tannins here as much as red wines so again, the seal is important but not extremely imperative.

 Secondly, the average bottle is 750ml. Make sure your decanter can hold the volume AND keep it fresh as a tight cap would.  Don’t buy a tiny decanter volume-wise. Large decanter = no pressure = no worries.

Thirdly, there is Crystal, the leaded kind of crystal.  AVOID it. Lead is something we don’t mess with in food or drink. Lead-crystal decanters will leach into your liquid over time so do yourself a favor and just avoid them. There are some beautiful options out there that won’t compromise your health so consider them as well.

That’s it Gentlemen, the 3 main considerations in choosing the optimum decanter. The rest is purely personal preference and budget. Hope this helps!

Enjoy the rest of your day! Hope I made you smile,

Adam.
