Someone in the recent wine thread mentioned leaded glass decanters. I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on these. They have been used for hundreds of years to hold wines and liquors but not long ago there was a major study that showed that lead was leached from the glass and into the liquid. The study said that short term use was okay but longer term storage was problematic. I knew many of my parents friends that kept liquor in leaded glass and there was never an issue, nor have I read any historical accounts of this being a problem. I ask this because my wife gave me a beautiful leaded glass decanter for Christmas. I would love to use it to store my bourbon in. The stopper is relatively tight so I am not worried about oxidation. I drink bourbon regularly but it would definitely sit in the decanter for a number of weeks. What are your thoughts? Is there a legitimate concern or is this just another example of "everything is going to kill you" hype?
