my experience from lighter whiskey to barrel proof bourbon, the glass really tones down the ethanol notes which is pretty incredible.
Yeah with brandy too; we were drinking 52-58% brandy and the alcohol was mostly not obtrusive.
That 13 Year Russell’s is quite lovely! Not as oaked as you’d think for the age, which I personally prefer. So happy you enjoyed the glass!
The perfect type of fragrant pour for Bennuaine crystal!
