Glencairn Tasting Glass Reviews


Any whisky tastes good in this glass

9th August 2020

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.

The only tasting glass you need

Great for tasting rum, and considerably more robust than the ultra-delicate crystal tasting glass.

Very new to drinking whisky and have found this invaluable.

I've got myself some Glencairn glasses from Islay a year ago and I always drink my whiskiesfrom them, great for tasting and on the nose!

The Whisky Glass

Does what it is supposed to. Since purchasing I have picked up new smells and flavours in whiskys I have tried many times.

5th March 2016

Great glass

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.
