Godinger Dublin Whiskey Decanter Review
#1) The top leans to one side so doesn’t fit right and the bottom 2 inches are solid glass so its heavy.
#2) Before purchasing this product, I suggest researching the harmful effects of lead crystal. This product is not useful for whiskey storage.
#3) Mine had some blemishes. It has some black specs within the glass that won’t wash out and for the price I did not expect to run into that issue.
#4) The decanter is fine, but the stopper does not fit properly. The stopper was cut at a tilt and no matter how one turns the stopper, it still tilts about 20 degrees and is quite noticeable. The glass stopper ruins the overall appearance of an otherwise nice decanter.
#1) The bottle feels sturdy in your hand and catches the light wonderfully. Its taken the center stage of the birthday boy’s home bar (who was absolutely blown away by it) and I’m sure it will well loved for years.
#2) This a very high quality item for it’s price-point. It’s body and stopper have a solid feel and are aesthetically appealing. The fact that it’s entirely glass (including the stopper base) is a bonus. The wide mouth design makes for easy filling and drip free pouring.
