What is the purpose of a whiskey decanter? Well, it supposedly allows aromas to oxidize and will serve as a more appealing vehicle than a bottle. And if you’re still not certain whether you need one for your Man Cave, here are 6 Reasons Why You Should Use a Whiskey Decanter.
Will it actually make your bourbon or whiskey taste better? We’re not sure. But many experts are of the belief that it will not improve the flavor. Why? Because, unlike wine, exposing whiskey or bourbon to oxygen will do nothing to enhance the flavor. And unless you’re a connoisseur of the dark liquor, rather than a weekend warrior whiskey drinker, it’s probably unlikely you can tell the difference between a decanted glass of whiskey or a glass of bourbon poured straight from the bottle.
Hey, you could probably have an outing in your Man Cave where you and friends have a test amongst yourselves. You know, to see whether you can pick the decanted whiskey or bourbon. C’mon, you remember the 80’s and the Pepsi challenge with Coca-Cola. Well, in case it slipped your memory or you’re not a product of the one of the best decades ever, then maybe you need a refresher course (uh, that a reference to Fletch)…
That’s Gabe Kaplan, who played Mr. Kotter in the classic late 70’s sitcom Welcome Back Kotter, which also starred John Travolta as Vinnie Barbarino, one of the sweathogs…
And if you still have a DVD player, you can get the Complete Series of Welcome Back Kotter. Okay, back on topic. So even if a whiskey decanter doesn’t improve the flavor, it seems that a decanter will at least preserve the life of whiskey. As well as maintaining the quality of the dark liquor. And there’s no harm in transferring whiskey or bourbon into a decanter unless you want to showcase the bottle for your friends. But you can still achieve that modest goal by leaving a little bit of bourbon in your vintage Papi’s to display on your Industrial Rustic Floating Shelf.
In addition, you have to consider the aesthetics of a liquor decanter. They just look nice. And don’t you want to impress your friends? Of course, you do. We mean, why do you by a car? Okay, maybe for practicality, but if it’s a choice between a Honda Civic and a BMW, which way are you leaning.
Finally, we need to provide the standard disclaimer when it comes to drinking whiskey. It tends to lead to bad decisions. So, you should probably take a look at some Whiskey and Bad Decisions Apparel. Or, consider this sign for your Man Cave…
