Often dubbed The Official Whisky Tasting Glass, the Glencairn is a superb vessel for the partaking of fine spirits. It combines both form and function.
The narrow mouth concentrates the smell of single malts allowing you to better capture the subtle aromas. On top of that it is cheap, sturdy, durable and very easy to clean and maintain. The size is perfectly judged to allow for up to 5cl of spirit to sit right in the widest part at the bottom of the glass, therefore providing maximum contact with air to release all the aromas. Can't fault it.
