    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.

    I've tried them all but still prefer a brandy snifter.

    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....

    That's my No 1 choice, a smallish one.

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

    My favorite WAS a brandy snifter (wife broke it awhile back and I have replaced it yet)... Post-break, various tumblers (one of my favs is from a Rare Breed gift set) when I drink bourbon on the rocks, otherwise Glencairn.

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

    As I burrowed through my glass cabinet, and began pulling out my favorite “go-to” glasses, I came out with the following (pictured below). In general, I find that I prefer the smallish (8oz), squatty, cheap (most were either picked up at Sampler, or taken from Hotels ), and those that offer a good grip. :

    1. Reidel Bourbon Glass: The only one I actually purchased. It’s my high-fallutin’ “Special Occasion Glass”, or my, “I’z a perfessional taster glass”

    2. Hilton Hotel Bathroom Glass: Lifted from various Hilton’s throughout the country. Dang nice, and at the right price.

    3. Buffalo Trace Glass: From previous Samplers. Similar to the Hilton glasses, but the raised /embossed buffalo gives a great grip.

    4. Chateau Elan Resort Bathroom Glass: Lifted from Chateau Elan Winery Resort. Nice noser, smallish, and again, a great price.

    5. Elijah Craig Glass: Another Sampler Glass. The wider opening is good if I feel like putting a few ice cubes in.

    6. Woodford Reserve Glass: Sampler Glass. Very heavy, short, stout glass. This just has a great feel to it.

    7. Bunny Cup: I bring this puppy out when I’m drinkin’ “juice”.

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

    If I get another glass my wife will have a fit. For me I like several basic styles depending on what I am tasting.... stylized snifter, flared rocks, small rocks and a small "O" style. I have moved away from larger glasses and never have been a fan of the Glencarin.. glass or crystal. Overall I tend to reach mostly for the snifter and the small "O" style.
