Vinturi for spirits - any opinions on this?

My thoughtful girlfriend got this for me for Valentine's Day, I was wondering if anyone had used it and what they thought.

The difference between this and the regular Vinturi just seems to the the 2 ounce top reservoir which has markings on the side for 1 and 1.5 ounce pours.

    I haven't used that one, but my wife and I did blind taste tests with the red wine Vinturi. We both liked the non-Vinturied wine better.

    Yes, blind taste tests. We're very exciting people.

      I also have only used the red wine one, but I've found that it works very well on really cheap wine (I'm talking $2 per bottle or less), making it smoother, while it takes away some of the character of better-quality wine.

      Let us know what you think of it after you try it.
