    Ok, listen up. Whiskey is the best darn spirit out there and I firmly stand by that statement.

    If you disagree, then good day, sir!

    Whether you drink it neat or on the rocks, you probably have your go-to whiskey drinkin' glass — and this tumbler-nosing glass by Norlan is definitely mine.

    This glass is the perfect hybrid of tumbler and nosing glass, and it's the best way to drink whiskey, IMO. Its design helps elevate the spirit's aroma, ultimately heightening the sensory experience. Really! You can actually smell the spices and flavors rather than just getting a huge waft of alcohol that burns the crap out of your eyes and nose.

    As a little refresher, tumblers are your standard whiskey glass. Nosing glasses, on the other hand, are vessels that have a wide base and narrower top.

    Because of the tumbler's open top, the aromatics diffuse into the air, leaving whiskey with a diminished flavor. No good.

    The Norlan glass is the best of both of these worlds. I have genuinely noticed a difference in the smell and taste of whiskey when drinking out of this glass — and not in a way that burns my eyeballs off.

    Its lightweight body also makes me feel quite fancy, so there's that.

    And because of the outer design of the glass, the heat from your hands won't warm the whiskey or melt the ice if you choose to drop a cube in there.

    Another bonus is that the glass just looks so freakin' sleek and fancy. Imagine serving your potential love interest some whiskey in this thing. 😍

    You can get a two-piece set of these stunners for $48. Now, I know what you're thinking. Kayla, are you nuts? Why in the world would anyone spend that much money on DRINKING GLASSES?!?! Well, pour yourself a beverage and allow me to explain.

    If you spend $50 on a nice bottle of whiskey, wouldn't you want it to taste it at its absolute best? These glasses give you the ability to do just that! You can taste the different spices and flavors that you wouldn't otherwise when using a standard tumbler. They're definitely an investment — and you should treat them better than basic dishware — but they are well worth it, *especially* if you loooove whiskey.

    They also make an amazing gift for all your whiskey-lovin' friends and family. Give them as an engagement gift or housewarming present. Give them as a birthday gift. Shoot, gift them to yourself!

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $48.
