As beautiful as a scotch decanter is, the verdict is still out on them. Many scotch purists don’t find a need for them, but for those low-mid range drinkers a decanter can be useful. Just like in the movies, a decanter is ultimately for show as scotch doesn’t need to age like wine. When scotch starts to age we call it “deterioration”, and if we pour the scotch too hard it will oxidize. We primarily use a scotch decanter for a mid range scotch or even bourbon, not your best stuff. When we infuse bourbon and other spirits, sticking them in a decanter looks better than a mason jar.

If you’re really starting to build up a great home bar, we don’t recommend this because it’s impractical and pros don’t use it. If you do decide to get a decanter, there are two important things to remember. First, the decanter must have a good seal or you’ll oxidize. Lastly, make sure your decanter is made of lead-free crystal. If there is lead in the crystal/glass, the lead can leach into the spirit over time which is dangerous.

The RCR Crystal Adagio Collection 7-Piece Whiskey Set by Lorenzo is an affordable decanter made of a lead-free crystal blend. This won’t run you a fortune and makes your lonely bottle of Jameson a bit more classy.
