2. Cup mouth: it can be divided into two types: internal receiving cup and open cup. The inside receive cup type: more easy to gather the aroma that liquor releases, more easy to feel the intensity of aroma and wallop, can enlarge the expression of all sorts of flavor. Open cup type: weaken the impact of aroma, more easy to feel the delicate change of aroma. The top of the glass is the most important factor to consider.
3. Cross-section size of tummy: the oxidation rate of liquor depends on the contact area between liquor and air. Oxidation speed is fast, smell and taste experience will be enhanced, whereas smell and taste experience will be softer.
