Zalto Glasses & Gabriel Glas

I own or more of the Zalto Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Universal stems, but the Zalto I use most often is the Digestif glass, primarily for tasting single malt Scotch and other fine whiskies and spirits. Chris was kind enough to order some from a previous year for me, having not imported them...
