5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect glass for whisky drinkers, 2 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Glencairn Official Whisky Glass (Kitchen & Home)
At last - the perfect glass for beholding, nosing and tasting your whisky.

If you've been using tumblers or nosing glasses (copitas) for years, you'll know the limitations of these two types of glass for whisky. Now comes the Glencairn Whisky Glass (it won the Queen's Award for Innovation in 2006) and it gives you a perfect tapering at the top for nosing, and a nice, big bowl below that enhances tasting. This is combined with good, solid bulk at the very bottom to give you that sturdiness I've always enjoyed with a tumbler, but which is lacking in thin-stemmed nosing copitas.

Ordering these glasses through Amazon means that they will be sent straight from the manufacturer, unadorned with a whisky seller's logo on the side, which for me is a plus.

Put aside your old glasses and get a quantity of these babies! You'll never go back. What with the rising quality of single and vatted malts these days, the availability of excellent guides in book form, and now the availability of this glass... it's never been a better time to be a whisky drinker.

Hello S. Cheesman. I am the reviewer, and I am not the maker of the glass. My line of business is in computers. Ok?

Thank you for a good, honest review and I have now ordered a Glencairn glass. (Maybe Mr. Cheesman's Hamsters do not care for the water of life?")

What are you talking about? Go feed your hamsters! (And don't give 'em whisky without LOADS of water served in a Glencairn Crystal glass, doofus.)
