    I have couple norlan ... I personally don?t want warm dram as I prefer at it room temperature ... but if you like ice you don?t want it melted


    The norlan also releases the aroma due to the fins ... allegedly

    Does water slip between the glass? (i.e. the whisky receptacle and the glass around it) Some similar glasses have this issue.
