    When i went out for my Birthday Dinner last night i ordered a Double Johnnie Walker Black neat. A few minutes later the waitress comes back and asks if i would like it chiled and said ok i was pretty suprised when she came back because my scotch was in a martini glass even my guest wondered if i got the right drink. It was deffinetly more then a double in their do you think they were just being extra nice since it was my birthday or are resturants now serving Scotch in Martini Glasses?.

    Just depends, some places think maybe its classier to use a martini glass. I however would not be thrilled. Just like beer, there is an appropriate glass for each and they should be used. Its probably not as important with liquor, but still, you order a manly drink, they bring it to you in a glass that implys you wear a skirt hehe.

    At best, they're trying to be "fad-ish". But, one of the benefits of scotch is its bouquet. Serving it in a wide-rimmed glass doesn't allow the bouquet to concentrate under your nose as you enjoy it.

    IMO, a bad idea.

  10. Unlike the paper bag and bottle I normally serve it to myself in... :smug:
  11. That is as gauche as gauche gets, but I doubt it tastes very different...

    100% in agreement. There are many circumstances in which alchoholic beverages are served in a certain type of glassware to enhance the experience and it doesn't only apply to wines like a lot of people think.

    Perhaps you should order a martini, it might come in a tumbler.

    Is that why Budweiser puts them their beers in them fancy lookin' bottles, as well as cans?

    Don't be silly. Budweiser doesn't make beer.

    Well...not REAL beer, anyway.
