Combining the knowledge and expertise of some of the whiskey world's leading innovators, the unique and stylish shape of this non-leaded crystal glass has been crafted with eminent care to enhance the enjoyment of single malts and aged blends. The tapering mouth allows an ease of drinking not associated with traditional nosing glasses, while capturing that all-important bouquet.

It has won accolades from around the world including the Queens Award, the highest award for business in the UK. It may have taken a few hundred years to arrive, but whiskey now has a glass of it's own.

I don’t know what to rate them, I loved them. I bought 4 on October 19th 2013. They fit so nicely in the hand and I find the bottom perfectly weighted. These glasses do enhance the enjoyment of scotch for me, concentrating the aromas while allowing for spill free swirling.

In December 2013, the bottom of one just fell off while casually holding it.
I lost my scotch on the floor.
I am not hard on my possessions and am very mindful when it comes to delicate items such as this. Well, I thought it a fluke and would not have taken off a single star based on a one off experience.

On January 22nd 2014, three months after purchasing, the same thing happened. The bottom just dropped off while holding it. I posted a picture of the 2nd glass. After drinking from them I rinse and wash them immediately by hand and put them upside down to drain and dry. I do not own a dishwasher. Maybe it was a bad batch or maybe I banged them at some point. Twice just seems more than coincidental.

My wife got me a pair of these for Valentine's Day. I am very happy with the glasses and the added aroma-effect when enjoying some bourbon. Sometimes I like ice - I was curious if an ice-ball, like the Tovolo Sphere or The Original Whiskey Ball (both 2.5" diameter), would fit. The Glencairn's opening is 1.75"; additionally, the glass is 4.5" tall, 2-5/8" wide at the widest point, and the base is also 1.75". I added a few pics to show "The Glencairn Glass" etching, height, and the opening. Hope this helps.

As Ralfy would say, Hello all you malt mates. This glass is perfect for that good single malt scotch. It allows the aromas to go straight to your nose when nosing. And after letting the whisky settle for a few moments lets you taste the wonderful flavors of your favorite whisky. I would recommend this glass for anyone serious about good scotch.

This is an update to the original review which was one-star because the item I received was not Glencairn. It appears to me that the offending seller no longer has a presence on amazon. Furthermore, I'm guilty of faulting the product when it is not at fault for my displeasure.

These tasting glasses are wonderful. Having sampled several bourbons side-by-side in comparison in these and a standard cocktail glass I can say that I enjoy the flavor of the bourbon from the Glencairn. Based on that alone I give it 5-stars.

As to some commenters: Is it "crystal" in the sense that we know it (i.e. 24% lead content)? No. Glencairn has perfected their whiskey glass to the point that it bears all the characteristics of crystal, without the lead. On their official website they describe it as "lead free crystal". Comments that add no value miss the point of the original review which pointed out that the seller was peddling a copy, not an original. If you're paying for a Mercedes, would you be happy if you got a Yugo disguised as a Mercedes? They're both cars, so why worry?

Prior to getting these glasses, I used rocks glasses almost exclusively. I enjoy my whisky neat, or at most a splash of water to allow the whisky to open up prior to sipping. I noticed an immediate difference with the first dram I poured. The individual notes came alive in my nose, allowing me to get more out of the whisky. If you like to mix your whisky or enjoy it on the rocks, this is not the glass for you. The design lends to exploring the intristic qualities of the whisky, and forces you to sip slowly. Sláinte!

These are great glasses for tasting whisky. I've been a wine aficionado for a long time and appreciate how the right glass improves the tasting experience. These do the same for whisky, and at a reasonable price.

Why are these better? When tasting, you need both taste and olfaction. Try it sometime: pinch your nose and taste something; it will be off and weak tasting. However, with whisky, there is the risk of getting too much alcohol on the nose, overpowering the whisky taste itself. For me, these glasses strike the right balance. To test them, I did a side-by-side blind taste test of two bourbons (Evan Williams 2002 and 2003 single barrel vintages). I could easily pick out the two years (of which 2002 was substantially better). I use these for bourbons as well as scotch and rye.

How do they compare to other options? I find whisky with them to be more enjoyable than with straight sided glasses such as the Riedel glasses (Riedel H2O Double-Old Fashioned Whiskey Glass, Set of 2). I have not tried long-stem nosing glasses (e.g., Schott Zwiesel Tritan Crystal Glass Stemware Nosing/Whiskey Glass, 7.4-Ounce, Set of 6) because they look fragile, but seem like another great option. Compared to the Riedel single malt glasses (Riedel Vinum Single Malt Whiskey Glasses, Set of 2), I think these are just as enjoyable and much less expensive.

Are they overrated? Probably. Unless you've been tasting out of tumblers, they are hardly going to be life-changing.
