Glencairn Whisky Tasting Glasses Set of 6 #17023
Champagne, Brandy, Wine... each has its own glass to highlight the taste and aroma of the beverage. Yet whisky, the world's most complex spirit, is served in a wide range of glasses, from hi-ball tumblers to Paris goblets. Raymond Davidson decided it was time for someone to design a proper whisky glass: a single definitive glass that the whisky world could call its own. Following in the tradition of Scottish innovation, the Glencairn Glass was developed, deriving its roots from the traditional nosing and tasting glasses used by master blenders and connoisseurs around the world.
Combining the knowledge and expertise of some of the whisky world's leading innovators, the Glencairn shape has been crafted with eminent care to enhance the enjoyment of single malts and aged whisky blends. The tapering mouth allows an ease of drinking not associated with traditional nosing glasses, while capturing that all-important bouquet. The wide bowl allows for the fullest appreciation of the whisky's color, and the solid base is designed to be easy on the hand.
Today, the Glencairn Glass can be found at every distillery in Scotland, Ireland and Wales as well as in most of the USA. It has won accolades from around the world, including the Queens Award, the highest award for business in the UK.

Perfect whiskey glasses
by Linda Starkey
Beautiful whiskey tasting glasses!
We've been looking for this shape and size since we were in Scotland!
Nice solid base. Great glasses for the price.

OMG! The whisky (scotch unblended) glasses are great! Perfect for aroma and gently sipping. What really impressed me, glasses set aside, was the packing. Extremely well protected and the use of biodegradable plastic(?) "peanuts" Totally awesome and totally recommended.
Great set for enjoying whiskey.

My boyfriend and I recently visited Buffalo Trace Distilleries in Frankfort, Ky. We toured the facilities. At the end we did a tasting. They used these glasses in the tasting and we loved them. Now we just received these and are thrilled
One sip and you'll never go back . . .
My Father, brothers and I all enjoy cigars and scotch. It's a shared ritual that marks special occasions and elevates ordinary ones. These glass were bigger and better than expected. Now that I have had the experience I'll never go back to drinking scotch any other way. They are just perfect.
If you like to sip good whisky neat, this is your glass.
Makes excellent juice glass and also a fine tasting glass for small amounts of whiskey or brandy. Delight for nose. If you like to sip good whisky neat, this is your glass.

Perfect. The glasses are obviously exactly what you expect from Glencairn Crystal Studio, and IWA had a good price, reasonable shipping, and swift processing. Great product, great ordering experience!
The whiskey glasses are beautiful. They will be a gift for our son in law with Macallan 18 when his first child is born soon.

High Quality Whiskey Glasses
by Ron R. -
Beautiful glasses that enhance the enjoyment of good whiskey. Bought the set as a Christmas gift for my wife. Very impressed with the quality.
Perfect Xmas Gift!
I gave these glasses to my husband for Christmas and he loved them. He is a scotch and single malt lover and is also a member of a single malt club that uses the same exact glasses. He said that they are weighted perfectly. It is a very pretty glass to drink a single malt in.
Good product, horrible service and cheap packing.
by A C
The glasses were as expected. The shipping was terrible. The glasses came wrapped in bubble wrap, each individually, These were bought to give as gifts, The cheap shabby shipping created a horror in producing acceptable gift wrapping. For $20 more I could have had them delivered in boxes of 2's.
Be assured we will not u se IWAl again. It is an embarrassment.
Glencairn Whisky Glasses
Recently purchased the Glencairn whiskey tasting glasses which we love having as they are very graceful. Now I know where to find them when one gets broken! They are perfect for after dinner brandy sipping as well as bourbon nightcaps. Your response service was very fast and much appreciated.
For the whiskey/whisky connoisseur

Serious sipping vessel for the serious taster. We bought these to experience our 18yo Jameson Reserve. You simply cannot find a better glass. Great hand feel, excellently weighted. If you buy these as a gift, better buy extra, you'll want them for yourself.
I am very pleased with the glasses. When sipping expensive Bourbon why use a cheap glass that diminishes the drinking experience when for a few dollars more the experience is exponentially better. Great customer rep and service for an added bonus. Strongly recommended.

Bought four of these glasses to go with a bottle of Edradour Single Malt Scotch as a gift for a retiree. They are beautifully balanced and of great quality and make a distinctive presentation. Now I want a set for our home!
Whisky or Whiskey anyone?
I knew I couldn't live without these when I first discovered them in San Francisco at Hard Water whisky bar. This vessel is SO much more pleasant to hold then a clunky, heavy tumbler style of whisky glass. Another point of distinction: the hologram look etch in the base of the glass that reads "The Glencairn glass." If you are a wine person and can't stop yourself from involuntary swirling, this is the whisky glass for you.
