    What type of glass do you drink your bourbon in?

    Looking at some new one's and looks like ill shoot for a 4 pack of the Glencairn whiskey glass for $28. I am guessing a good percentage on here use that as glass of choice?

    Right now I use a couple four roses whiskey glasses I picked up at their distillery back in the fall visit. Pretty good but not great for helping the nose. Havent seen a thread strictly on this so figured why not start one. If there is, I apologize just did not see one in a search.

    Re: What type of glass do you drink your bourbon in?

    I used to just use a tumbler or a short glass that came in a gift pack, until my step daughter got me 2 of the Glencairn whiskey glasses with a celtic C on them for Christmas and then I bought 2 more from the Woodinville Whiskey Co because they were on special for $12 a pair through the Living Social

    Heres a closed glassware thread that we can probably build on.

    Re: What type of glass do you drink your bourbon in?

    I use the Glencairn most of the time and find it very good. Lots of people sell them, so shop around for the best price. Most of mine have come from attending WhiskeyFest, where you get one as part of the cost of admission. Since they always have that year's logo on them, Malt Advocate will sometimes clear out leftovers from previous years at very good prices.

    I just bought 24 Glencairn 2010 WhiskyFest glasses for $125. They threw in two hoodie sweatshirts, two T-shirt, two bar towels and 8 books. SO it was quite a deal. The deal changes each week.

    And it's a good thing I got 24 because I have already dropped one on the porch! There seems to be a relationship between the amount of Bourbon I drink and the likelihood of dropping the glass!

    Re: What type of glass do you drink your bourbon in?

    I used to drink all of my bourbon out of a Glencairn glass but have switched over to a nice Four Roses glass that came with a gift set a few years back. Because I drink virtually all my whiskey neat, I prefer a smaller glass, as I have no need to make room for ice.

    Im guessing this will happen after ALL whiskeyfest are over?

    I am on there now and see nothing, but likely looking in the wrong place. If you can shoot a link of the page then I would appreciate that! Thanks.

    Ah gotcha, so went to the "hot deals" and please tell me if I am missing something here. Why would anyone get the set of 6 for $40 when you can get the $50 golfers special and get 6 more for $10 and a ton of other crap I really dont need. What am I missing?

    The golfers one seems to be the most logical. I really have no need for 12 but....
