Description

A large or small bowl-like glass, with a constricted mouth, specified to contain a small quantity brandy or other quality amber spirit. The design allows for the heat of one's hand to warm the spirit, and the aromatic fumes to collect above the liquor in the glass so to be pleasurably inhaled before sipping.

Volume

12.00 oz (default CocktailDB volume; actual specimens may vary)
