A Nosing Glass

This is one produced for the SMWS but they are available from many other specialist shops (e.g. whisky retailers and distillery visitor centres). There is no doubt that they do make an enormous difference if you are seeking to make a detailed assessment of a whisky.

I have heard it said that the 'original' nosing glass comprised a spherical bulb with a tubular chimney on top but I have not seen this confirmed.
