The Balloon sizes can vary in size from miniature to rediculously large and cumbersome. Our Brandy Snifter is of a decent and sensible size. Warming the Brandy with your hand will release its beautiful (simple or complex) flavours; the bowl size and shape is highly important for the aroma to stay in the bowl, swirl round and enter the nose of the drinker. Delicate and subtle notes can be lost if a Brandy is served in any other glass. The idea is to savour, and enjoy the years of work that have gone into maturing the Brandy - why lose all that enjoyment and pleasure with the wrong glass?
