I'm interested in getting a cheap, basic Glencairn, maybe 2. What's generally recommended? Eventually I'll get a nice set (= sneak it past my wife) but right now I'm just looking for one - something as a starter that I don't have to worry too much about, can throw in the dishwasher, etc.

I searched around but didn't find much.

Any recommendations? Get the cheapest one on Amazon or E-bay? Get one from cobhthaighceltique.com? Buffalo Trace?

I don't know if there are different qualities or if a Glencairn is a Glencairn . I'd get a quality one to start if there is a difference.

Thanks,

Mike
