Whatever the reason, drinking whisky from a Glencairn glass is an experience that all whisky lovers should enjoy at least once.

So why not pick up a set of Glencairn glasses and start enjoying your favourite whiskies in style? You'll be glad you did.

Reviews for Glencairn Tasting Glass
Simply the best
I'm a rum drinker. A glass can't make any difference can it? Oh yes! I acquired two of these from a charity shop. I served my brother-in-law some Ron Santiago de Cuba 12 year old. He bought himself two glasses. Says it all really.

It actually works.
When I started in whisky, I drank it out of an old fashioned tumbler and, although enjoyable, I wanted to try a "proper whisky glass" I thought it was a load of nonsense but it actually intensifies the aroma of whatever you're having a dram of!

Surprised and impressed!

Must have for a beginner and veteran!
Some may just say "Well, it's just a glass. What can it possibly do that a normal glass can't?" but it really does enhance the aroma and, consequently, flavour of a dram. Whether it be Scotch, Irish, Bourbon or Rum, this glass is a must have. A very large step up from a tumbler.

Fairly easy to clean and made of sturdy glass, these are elegant and durable. As I say, a must have.

It certainly enhances the pleasure of a wee dram
I particularly like the way in which it fits into my hand enabling a very secure grip with my small finger encircling below the bowl

The most used vessel for a reason
Most whisky lovers (will) think the form of a Glencairn is superb for many reasons. The glass is easy to grab hold of and the opening makes it ideal to both sip and smell your dram. The entire shape is designed to make it ideal to pick up the more intense smells without the burn of the alcohol (as long as you open your mouth while inhaling). I much prefer this over some thin walled piece or a generic tumbler.

For both beginning and experienced drinkers, this combines the ideal smelling, tasting, and handling of whisky in a single vessel.

Only glass I need
Great. Holds the nose and taste, with or without water

For most, pass on this and buy a nice snifter
For most, the form is lacking. The glass is awkwardly too small in the hand, and when sipping the nose is too concentrated and intense. I much prefer a thin walled snifter for drinking scotch whisky.

For a connoisseur who will place nosing function over form, this vessel is at the top of the heap.
