Ralph Lauren Leather-and-Crystal Decanter
We're not exactly sure how much decanting affects the taste of a fine whisk(e)y, but we're guessing there's a reason people do it. Of course, if we had a decanter as cool-looking as this Ralph Lauren leather and crystal jobby we found at Uncrate, we'd probably be decanting all over the place even if it didn't have any noticeable benefits at all. It's a bit on the spendy side, coming in at just under $400, but just think - you buy this once and you can pass off the cheapest whiskeys in the world in it, because people will see it coming out of a fancy decanter and just assume that's how it should taste.

As far as I know, there is no benefit at all from decanting whisky except from disguising cheap whisky and 400 dollars would buy you a terrible lot of nasty whisky to decant, or quite a lot of good whisky.
