    I think it was Shakespeare who wrote, “To Decant, or not to Decant: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune…” The problem I have with most decanters, is that many are designed to be fancy but yet because of their design they are difficult to clean without soap (a “no, no”).
