This Fancy-Shmancy Typeface Looks Exactly How Whisky Tastes


It’s not exactly “scratch and taste” but this whisky-themed typeface by Scottish illustrator Steven Bonner gets pretty damn close.

Designed for Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky, the illustrator transformed the liquor’s flavor profile into a series of letters characterizing each unique note, as noted by Design Taxi.

Check out the oaky “O,” vanilla-y “V,” creamy “C,” and honey-y “H,” below and just try not to lick the screen.

Memo Mug

Writing phone numbers and notes on your hand might have been okay when you were in school, but now that you’re a grown up with a real job, it’s not very professional to go around with pen scribbles on your skin.  However, the coffee mug is a staple of office culture, and you surely won’t seem out of place with one of these.  With its built-in pocket to hold the pen, you’ll always be able to write down that idea you don’t want to forget.  Write a note to yourself that you would like to be reminded of every time you take a sip.  Just try not to doodle caricatures of your boss on it during that important meeting.
