2. For Aroma
For dark and aromatic drinks (think red wine and brandy), half the taste is in the smell. For these you’ll need a wide, bulbous glass with a tapered mouth—allowing the drink to properly breathe and fully capture the aromas.
Glasses with height are good to have on hand, but if you drink brandy as much as red wine, a stemless wine glass can double up as its appropriate vessel, the snifter. They’re also just right for dark beers, like Belgian Ales and IPAs—a quick swirl in a stemless glass will awaken amber scents better than any bottle. Believe us when we say a good ‘ole IPA will never be the same.
