Ask Rye Why
Don't know much about a science book? Who cares, when your rocks glasses teach chemistry. Each glass in this pair can teach whiskey, scotch, and rye-loving geeks about a different array of the complex molecules that give the amber spirits their mojo. Furfural, for example, imparts the almond, caramel taste characteristic of single malts. Scopoletin's the source of the sweet smell from oak barrel aging. See? You know more already. A few more sips, a few more annotated molecules, and you'll ace this exam. Made in China.
