With its gently curved bowl that fits comfortably in the hand, tapered sides rising to a smaller nose-sized aperture and a heavy base that make it difficult to knock over, the Glencairn has the perfect combination of aesthetically pleasing looks and serious nosing functionality, while also carrying sufficient heft from its crystal glass to feel good in the hand at events. The definitive festival tasting glass of the last decade, this is a modern design classic of its genre.
As newbie to single malts , i ordered two of these wonderful glasses and there crystal! but this glass has enabled me to enjoy a "wee dram" all the more.Also delivery is top notch, placed my order on sunday and they were waiting for me on tuesday fantastic! will be ordering a few malts very soon.

I was slightly sceptical at first, but you'll never drink (or have the time of day for someone who does) whisky from a tumbler again after using one of these... The aromas concentrate a lot better at the nose of the glass and you get a whole lot more from your whisky.

This is THE must have glass for any whisky drinker. Tulip shaped like a nosing glass yet has the feel of a heavier tumbler inyour hand.
