Vinturi Essential Red Wine Aerator (Standard)
on April 29, 2016
The Pro: The aeration process does work...tested on a Rum spirit known as Pyrat XO Reserve, which has a harsh ethanol taste with an orange linger. This Red Aerator smoothed out the taste beautifully.
The Con: If you don't hear the aeration suction sound, you're gonna have to redo it. Instead of pouring straight from the bottle, use a secondary glass or measuring cup. The two aeration holes on the side of the Vinturi will unfortunately leak/dribble out some of your wine or spirit during the pour.
Overall, it's a cool gadget to have around for drinking on the fly by yourself. If you're drinking with friends, you're better off looking for a decanter.
