My favorite glass is the one containing whiskey

Like most, I like the Glencairns. I use the small ones with the base for neat pours and tastings. For sipping, I use the Canadian Glencairn since I normally use one or two cubes of ice.
Irvig stemless wine glasses from Ikea are pretty kickass for $3, theyre small (4") with a narrow top and a nice tapered bottom that fits nicely in the hand.
Hard to beat a sturdy Glencairn, but I've been looking for a copita type stemmed glass and found this at Crate&Barrel today. Called a Leopold and holds 6oz. Wide based and nice balance in hand. Like the wide bowl and tapered mouth for nosing higher proof pours. Just a bit wider than a Glencairn

I am also on the hunt for some stemmed glasses. So far these are my top pick.

That's a cool glass Eric!

I got a nice crystal Copita glass years ago and I think I used it maybe four times. Stemware and bourbon just don't go together for me. I still seem to use a crystal Glennie about 80% of the time.
Right now I'm sipping some 4R from
A Canadian Glencairn. It's a functional glass but good Lord it is fugly. But it was a gift from a dear Canadian buddy, so I'm trying to like it.
I think having a wide variety of glasses available is great even if you mostly use one or two.
And a crystal glass of any shape is a thing of beauty for the hand. They just feel better to hold.
I found this online last night- maybe it's been discussed here before:
