Also, I have to say I bought the tower here on Woot as well but don't use it. Takes up too much counter space, and my wife and I have no problems decanting without it. As long as you're reasonably coordinated, you'll get the hang of it. But I definitely love the Vinturi itself, and I may have to spring for the "spirit" decanter. Never considered the need for that, but I do like a good bourbon from time to time. Wonder if the wine model would suffice for that purpose? Time for a late night experiment, perhaps?
