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.Read more ›
Now, what this glas is intended for, it does it very well. This glass helps you truly taste your whiskey. This is for people who like and truly appreciate the way whiskey tastes. If you view bourbon as just a vehicle for getting a buzz, look elsewhere. If you view the buzz as a nice side effect of a truly magical tasting spirit, this is your glass. Until this glass, I always thought those professional whiskey tasters were making half the stuff they said up. But when I started drinking from this glass, I truly started to experience the complex flavors of truly top shelf bourbon and scotch and even the occasional japanese whiskey. I could taste the difference between the different scotch regions. It allowed me to become a connoisseur of whiskey as opposed to just a drinker of whiskey.
Basically, the biggest secret is that it channels the aromas into your nose as you are drinking. Our sense of taste is just as much from our sense of smell as it is our tastebuds. With alcohol this is even more so, because alcohol dulls your taste buds pretty quickly. Meaning most of the flavor comes from smell.Read more ›
They have a good heft and even with my friend's rough use no problems. Not fragile, but not idiot-proof either. Haven't broken one yet. The shape really does seem to help focus aroma. Found these after another Canadian whisky set w/ a large maple leaf on the bottom (chose not to get those because of the leaf).
After about 2-3 months use, i am seeing the bottom lettering be a little less distinct. Looks etched and the outside edge is the bottom contact of the glass - so i expect they will eventually wear smooth. No biggie but be aware.
Nice glasses - definitely recommend the set.
