  23. 23. Whiskey Glass Types & Usage The type of whiskey glass used really does make a difference. There are different glasses for different types of drinks. Most people have a preferred way to enjoy their whiskey and it just makes sense to drink from a whiskey glass that matches the style. Which Whiskey Glass to Use:- old fashioned glass Simplistic Drinking Pleasure There are some whiskey drinkers who are not interested in all the fancy extras. They like their drinks straight up, adding no additional ingredients or ice. The standard, old-fashioned glass, often referred to as a lowball glass, is perfectly suitable for this purpose. It has a thick base that resists breaks for those who want to use a muddler. Taking it On the Rocks rocks glass This type of glass is called the rocks glass and is designed especially to make room for the additional volume ice brings to the drink. It features a heavy, sturdy bottom that makes it easier to handle. shot glass Slammers Taking Shots It is not every whiskey drinker’s style to sip slow and savor every drop. Some simply want to get on with the experience, slamming down the drink and zipping to the feeling. For these, the shot glass is the perfect match.
  24. 24. highball glass (tumbler) Go Long for Mixed Drinks Whiskey purists may find it atrocious to add anything to the drink, but not everybody feels that way. There are many who enjoy exploring their creativity by adding all sorts of delicious ingredients. For mixed drinks, the long high ball glass is ideal. These glasses stand tall for handling the greater volume. snifter Make Drinking an Event Those who are passionate about their whiskey make a big deal out of each drink. They want classiness and style in glasses that will allow them to drink skillfully, making careful observations about the quality of the liquid. These drinkers may find the snifter has all they could ask for and more. While most commonly used by brandy drinkers, these snifters can be considered glasses used for whiskey also. Glencairn whiskey glass Drink Malt with the Glencairn There are not many glasses for whiskey drinking that have made such an entrance into the public awareness as the Glencairn. This glass was brought to the world of drinking enthusiasts in 2001 by Raymond Davidson, a Scottish inventor. Its wide bottom grants a great deal of stability while the tapered top effectively draws the aroma to the nose of the drinker. Those who like to enjoy malt whiskey will find this whiskey glass ideal.

  26. 26. effects of whiskey The effects of the whisky depends on the amount consumed, but there are other circumstances that may accelerate or exacerbate. • Age: Young people are more sensitive to the effects of alcohol on activities that deal with planning, memory and learning, and are more resistant than adults to the sedative and motor in coordination. • The weight and sex: Alcohol affects more serious for people with lower body mass. In general, women weigh less and the size of your internal organs are proportionally smaller, therefore, smaller amounts of alcohol can quickly generate more psycho-organic damage and develop alcohol problems more easily than men.
  27. 27. • The amount and speed of intake: depending on the amount of alcohol consumed, irrigation can be considered low, high or dangerous. A higher intake of alcohol in less time, greater possibility of getting drunk. • The combination with carbonated drinks (tonic, coke, etc.) accelerates the effect of alcohol in the body. • The simultaneous ingestion of food, especially fatty food, slows the effect but does not prevent the alcohol effect. • Consuming analgesics/drugs/medicines worsens the effect and puts the person in a drunk state.
