Winner of the Villeroy & Boch nosing glasses announced!!

Just this past Monday I did a review of two different Villeroy & Boch whisky nosing glasses.  As you might recall, this was both a review of the glasses and a Father’s Day giveaway announcement for one lucky winner.

From the near 75 entrants I picked one name at random – Jeff Partington.  Congrats Jeff, Happy Father’s Day!

What does Jeff win?  His choice of a set of two of the Single Malt Nosing Goblets (pictured left) or the Single Grain/Lowlands Tumbler (pictured right).  Additionally, because I’m a nice guy, ;), I’m throwing in two 5cl samples of a whisky of his choosing – Scotch, American (bourbon or rye), Japanese or Swedish whisky.

I’d like to thank the good people at Villeroy & Boch for sending me the whisky glasses to sample out and for additional glasses to be sent to Jeff as his Father’s Day gift.

If you’ve not seen the video reviews of these fine glasses, you can check out Monday’s post here.

Reviewing… whisky nosing glasses?

A short while back, and completely out of nowhere, Villeroy & Boch emailed me asking if I would be interested in reviewing their whisky glasses.  I remembered hearing about their glasses last year (I think) on Mark Gillespe’s WhiskyCast Podcast and was intrigued.

For the most part, I use a standard Glencairn glass or their Copita glass when nosing/reviewing/drinking whisky but am always open to trying new glasses.  So what the hey, I said yes.  I’m happy to review their glasses.  What’s more is the Villeroy & Boch folks agreed to do a giveaway with me (perfect timing for Father’s Day).

Villeroy and Boch Single Malt Nosing Goblet
Villeroy and Boch Lowlands Tumbler

So here’s the deal, check out the two videos below.  The first one is a review of their Single Malt Nosing Goblet.  The second is a review of their Single Grain/Lowlands whisky tumbler.  After you’ve checked them out, you should have some info to go by to decide which set of (2) glasses you might want (should you win).  The Nosing Goblet is to the left, the Tumbler is to the right.

“So, how do I enter to win?”send an email to: jewmalt@yahoo.com and I will choose, at random, one winner out of all the people who enter*.

*the glasses can only be send within the US and Canada

I will announce by Wednesday, June 9th so DO NOT HESITATE! Email today.

To make it even sweeter, I will give out two samples (one for each glass) of whisky.  Something special for that special father out there.  You would just need to let me know if you want Scotch, American, Japanese or Swedish whisky and it’s yours!  Sharing is caring and a good father deserves good whisky.

Note: the glasses will come from Villeroy & Boch, the whisky samples will come from me.

Enjoy the vids. First, the Single Malt Nosing Goblet (man, look at the picture this video start with.  I look like I’m asleep):

Next, the Single Grain/Lowlands Tumbler:

Good luck!!
