I love single malt whisky & US bourbon. I was somewhat skeptical that this glass would greatly improve my enjoyment but I'm now a believer! The glass truly does allow you to pick out the subtle nuances more precisely. If you're spending $50 and more on single malt scotch, why would you want to miss out on the nuances of each?

The design of this glass is based on the traditional "nosing" glass used by master whisky blenders. The pinched waist holds the aroma and the tapering neck directs the bouquet up to your nose. The smaller opening keeps the air in the room from confusing your senses so you get a more precise "nose". A traditional nosing glass has no cuts in the glass or other decoration because it would distort the color of the whisky.

The Glencairn glass was originally designed for pub/bar use so it is a sturdy little glass. The bottom is heavy so it's not easily tipped over and is easily grasped. It feels good in the hand. The only glass that would provide a better hand feel (in my opinion) would be a small brandy snifter. A sherry copita would also be a good substitute glass.

The size of the bowl was designed to hold the "proper" amount of scotch which is between 35 & 50 mL or approximately 1.5 fluid oz. in a US bar. You pour the scotch to the area on the glass where it just starts to taper up. The photo on the box shows a "proper" pour. The opening is a comfortable size for nosing and drinking.

Glencairn also sells a crystal version of this glass but I prefer this lead free version because it is sturdy. The lead free version can go through the dishwasher if you choose but I always hand wash mine so that I don't get any soap or rinse agent residue in the glass. I find this glass to be the right combination of sturdy and elegance.

Wonderful glass which enhances the nose and flavor of bourbons. I picked up one of these in a gift pack that came with a commemorative bottle of Old Forester 100 proof bourbon celebrating the 75th anniversary of prohibition. I could have bought four bottles (375 ml) with four Glencairn glasses for much less than just a set of four glasses cost on the Internet. Check your local package store.

I bought these for my boyfriend for his birthday, and they are soooo lovely! All four of them were packaged in their own individual box, and then packed in a larger box! Not a scratch on them! They look so elegant and are made of a fine crystal. I love how you can read the logo on the bottom of the glass by looking down into the glass. (it's backwards if you look at it from the bottom) The crystal is delicate but makes the glass look stunning! I have no doubt in my mind that he will love them. I also received them quickly! Ordered them on Tuesday night, got them Saturday morning! I can't wait for him to open this gift!!

Wonderful glasses though I believe the edges aren't smoothed as well as they could be for the cost.

I am slowly starting to get into the hobby of whisky collecting. I have been to distilleries in Scotland and Ireland and sampled Scotches, bourbons, and Whiskeys around and from around the world. I have a beginners collection of all different types of whisk(e)ys and bourbons that I pick up whenever I can. Time and time again they are served and sipped out of the Glencairn Whisky Glass. This is the product of that old adage: "necessity is the mother of invention". If you're drinking whisky out of a regular or rocks glass, you're missing out on one half of the entire experience - the bouquet! You truly have no idea what you're missing until you put your spirits in this glass. The large bowl at the bottom allows for ample swirling without the fear of spillage. The heavy chunk of glass at the bottom sits confidently on the table without any fear of tipping. The tall fluted neck allows for the swirl to rise high and open up the whisky and beautifully displays the slow oily legs of your whisky. The fluted neck also, and more importantly, allows for the intense concentration of all the scents to be funneled into a small area and perfectly nosed. If you're used to smelling your whisky from a rocks glass, be warned - this is not the same. Do NOT shut your mouth and breath deep! Hold the glass about 7-10 inches from your nose and allow the scent to waft into your nose unforced, then remove it. Bring the glass about 3-5 inches to your nose and inhale with your mouth open, then remove it. The third nosing is done about ½" away from your nose, again with your mouth open to almost taste the smells. This glass is absolutely essential to the true appreciation of these wonderful spirits. Do NOT add cola, or ginger ale, or handfuls of ice to your single malts!!!!!Read more ›
