Just before Christmas I logged into my credit card rewards website and realized I had just over 10,000 points that we going to expire at the end of the year. That was a shitty feeling. However, it meant that I got to shop for something I wanted. With the Christmas on the way and Steve laying down a firm law of you can't buy anything for yourself this time of year, I had to look for things not on my list and hope that no one would just think to buy these things for me. I was pissed though, because I was hoping to save those points until I could get something I really wanted (like a lens for my camera or something wicked cool and expensive). Anyhow - I got some heads for my electric toothbrush, because they are expensive and I got a wine chilling bucket because I thought it'd be nice to have.
Then the big ticket item I picked up was a set of wine aerators - one for white and one for red. Here is the link to these things on Amazon.
I got them just before New Years Eve and decided to drink wine that night just to be able to test these things out! We did a taste test on both red and white wines and overall noted a pretty significant difference in the bouquet (smell on the forefront), the taste of the wine, and the finish/aftertaste. It was pretty cool! These things are pretty solid too, I'm not very concerned about them breaking.
So on Amazon they are normally priced at $99, currently on sale for just under $60. I got them for free just by charging things to my credit card. :) Pretty neat, huh?
Have you ever used anything like this for wine? Did you notice a difference? Do you want to invite me to a party now so that you can try these out? ;)
