Frantically searching for Elijah Craig Barrel Proof....
I am looking for Schott Zwiesel Barrel Aged Spirit glasses if anyone has access to any. Thanks.

While i did grab a Glencairn based on all the feedback on SB.com, i also snagged a box of Bormioli Rocco Nadia Double Old Fashioned glasses for everyday pours. Just the right amount of weight in my hand.
Not my favorites per se, but I've been using the big-bottomed-tapered-to-the-top RR 1792 rocks glasses with much enjoyment, lately. Nice heft, but without being clunky. Sleek, actually. And, extremely versatile. Big enough for a cocktail, but it's tapered shape allows for superb neat sipping.

As much as I like nosing bourbon in the glencairn glass, I really dislike the shape and design of it. It's base is made for someone with hands the size of a 6 year old and the opening on the top is maybe the size of a ping pong ball? I swear that one day I am going to knock it over while sitting on the back patio sipping on some Pappy 15. But, I still use it because I am a sucker for a good whiskey nose, but prefer drinking from a curved/tapered rocks glass.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
