Great item if you're looking to class up your debilitating alcoholism without sacrificing too much of your precious whiskey money.

This is a entry-level set consisting of a decanter and 6 glasses. The first thing I noticed was that the stopper on the decanter was pastic, and not glass, as I expected. This makes the decanter look and feel a little cheap. But on the positive side, both the decanter and glasses seem to be well made and look nice on display. Each feels solid in your hands, which gives them a rich apearance. The pattern on the glassware also gives it a touch of elegance. All in all, the set is worth the money paid. If you are looking for whiskey set that looks good and won't break the bank, I would recommend this. However, if you don't mind spending $20 more, there are other sets that offer true elegance.

I was getting tired of drinking whiskey right out of the bottle. So, I decided to class up my life and buy this gift set FOR MYSELF. Turned out to be an excellent choice. I don't believe you will find a better set for the price. The decanter and glasses arrived in perfect condition. They have since provided a nice temporary home for my whiskey as it waits to be poured down into my thirsty gullet.

I purchased a few of these decanter sets as part of a gift for the guys in my wedding party. They were a huge hit and everyone had them filled with scotch or whiskey as soon as they got home from the wedding. Much better quality in person than the photos depict. I'd definately recommend this style of decanter over the clear glass ones as this style looks much nicer when filled.

Contrary to what other reviewers may say, I think the plastic lining is good. Sure its not asthetically pleasing to see a plastic stopper, but for preventing whiskey evaporation/ deterioration from contact to air, I appreciate the functionality. A concern I had prior to purchasing was whether there was lead in the glass. As someone pointed out to me, given its low price and light weight, its likely just glass, not crystal. This will be bad news for someone looking for a pricier crystal showpiece, and good news to someone who wants something nice to store whiskey in without having to worry about toxic lead seeping into their drink!
cheers!

I was skeptical ordering this set off the internet, especially at this inexpensive price. I was worried it would be thin and cheap. However, it was beautiful, sturdy and lovely. I ordered 3 sets for Christmas and they were all very well received. Excellent product and wonderful price!

Purchased this whiskey set via macy's.com on amazon and it arrived in tact! Other reviews stated the set arrived in pieces, so this worried me. I bought this for my boyfriend's birthday and I am sure he will love it! He saw a similar item for mucho $$$ at chrome hearts, which I would never be able to afford, so this set is a great alternative. The glasses are not super light, but not the high-end heavy kind either...we're in our twenties, so I think for us, this is good enough. If you are buying for a older person who really knows their stuff.. you might consider the more high-end sets.

Glasses and decanter are all solid feeling and clear. Obviously not the best or most beautiful, but very good for the price.

I bought this to be a gift as a starter set for a scotch and whiskey drinker. I paid $20 for the set, which is cheap, so the plastic stopper, glass material, and the light/ fragile rocks glasses wasn't a big deal. Since its glass, I didn't expect it to be brilliant as crystal under the light. I do think the design is beautiful. However, I will be returning it because of the numerous scratch marks that makes the decanter look really cheap and poorly made, as if it was from some third world country and not "Italy." These scratch marks are not from shipping, but from the manufacturer.

Pros:
- Design
- Large Set
- Lead Free (Glass)

Cons
- Scratch marks on all four faces of the Decanter (unexpected)
- Some scratches on the glasses
- Looks way cheaper than expected
- Plastic stopper (expected con)

I will post pictures.

Bormioli Rocco Capitol Decanter -2nd Best! Big and Heavy glass, plastic on bottom of stpper but stopper was glass
KLOUD ® Clear 1000ml (33.8 ounces) Whiskey / wine / liquor decanter - Pretty good, thin glass, plastic stopper
Bormioli Rocco Dedalo 26-1/3-Ounce Decanter with Stopper- Ok quality, thin glass, Cool shape! plastic stopper
Bormioli Rocco Selecta 33-3/4-Ounce Decanter with Stopper- Ok quality, thin glass, plastic stopper
***Bormioli Rocco Selecta 7-Piece Whiskey Gift Set (Exact same as above decanter + 4 glasses) the glasses are not the thickest glass either, I'm using those in the bathroom for water cups instead of the bar
Whiskey 30 Ounce Decanter with Stopper- Pretty good, thicker glass then the one above this but still plastic stopper
