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.
That's what I thought, anyway, but decided, hey, if I'm going to be venturing into scotch territory, might as well give these a shot.
Then I said, why not buy 4? Just in case I break a couple.
$25 later, I noticed how small these things are... so the product image is a bit deceiving. No biggie... you aren't going to be filling a tumbler full of scotch anyway.
I am coming from a regular old short tumbler glass. Cheap, works. Good for the nose, works for drinking a dram easily.
The nose on this glass is fantastic. One of the things I enjoy most about Scotch is the nose. It is MUCH more potent and concentrated than an open tumbler glass, and the design makes it obvious as to why. It is a smaller opening as well, which keeps the aroma in the glass moreso than my cheap tumbler.
Drinking from it feels snobby. I'm now snobby. Not much to say about that. =) It almost feels like drinking from the top of those old oil candle glass covers that you usually break as a kid because they were super fragile.
I can't say much about durability yet because I just got them recently. Someone mentioned having the bottoms falling out... I do not see any seams or anything where they just attached them to the glass. It's the only thing I can think of as to why this would happen.
Worth $25 for 4? Probably not. For me, being able to enjoy the nose definitely is. =)
2018/03 UPDATE: After a year, I am still drinking from my first glass. I'm not doing shots and slamming it on the table, so maybe other buyers had faulty glasses? Noticed that some people had some shoddy-looking packaging... mine came in a nice box that I STILL have (mostly because the other three glasses are still in there.) If it comes in a white package, question it. If you get the genuine thing, definitely worth $25 for 4.
Still a fantastic glass to appreciate the nose of a good whisky. A nice stem to hold as well without warming the whisky. Easy to swirl and open up the whisky.
Whisky whisky whisky. =)
I picked up two of these to replace the one I had that was purchased a few years ago from Cost Plus World Market which finally broke. The one from WM cost about $10, these two cost about $14 for the pair. They are definitely a bit thicker than my original which might not be a bad thing. The etching is there, although as others have stated, not quite perfect, maybe a little fainter than my first one. My guess is that after these got popular, a new manufacturer was used to deal with the increased demand with some sacrifice in quality. All in all, I am happy, assuming they hold up to my fairly careful care (hand washing and such).
