    Re: Favorite Glass?

    I use the Glencairns for critical tastings, but I love the feel/weight of my Crown Royal Black square tumblers. If I'm just drinking, the tumblers are always considered, though not always chosen. They came in a gift set, and I gifted the Crown, kept the glasses. One of the reasons I like them is that crescent shaped ice does NOT mimic the contour of the glass. Movement of liquid to my mouth is therefore NOT impaired. Ya gotta have priorities, right?

    Yes, once established priorities must be maintained.

    Re: Favorite Glass?

    I almost always drink bourbon from Glencairns. Occasionally I'll pour into a rocks glass, but I tend to drink everything neat so my small pours get a bit lost. I have probably 100 or so beer glasses though. I probably regularly use 5-10 of those (more if you count what my wife and close friends routinely use). I'll try to take a picture and post it on here.

    Favorite Glass?

    I have been using the 4R's glass that was in the gift pack this year. Great weight. Smaller than an normal rocks glass. I actually bought 4 on eBay for when I inevitably break the one I am using.

    I came across the Cardinal f &d 11 oz. crystal whiskey/Old Fashioned glass on the 'net. Only $135.62, marked down from $259.72. Must be for drinking your $700 Pappy.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I usually go for my Glencarin glasses, but sometimes I use these 6oz juice glasses from Crate & Barrel.

    They are a nice size and weight, and a 2oz pour doesn't get lost. Plus, they're cheap, so I wouldn't care if I broke one.

    I will almost always reach for my canadian glencairn glass. Sometimes, the standard glencairn, but not often

    I rotate between 3... Canadian Glencairn, WT gift set glass, and Waterford. I use the the Glencairn for sipping ppremium whiskeys neat, the WT glass for up cocktails (especially sazeracs), and the crystal for whiskeys poured over the ice ball.
