    I use a glencairn about 90% of the time, but I found these at Pier 1 for about $3 and they're awesome for an ice sphere:

    Got mine today and love them. They are heavier than I expected but my ice barrel fits perfectly and the ice does melt slower.

    Received mine and finally open them after a long while.

    First impression, don't like them at all. Had a first pour then pour it back into the Glencairin glass instead. I'm going to give this to my brother to drink beer with or something.

    Tiger, what did you not like about them? Admittedly, they are a big change from a Glencairn. Biggest difference being the thick "lip", but that's the nature of the beast.
    I don't use mine every day, but when I want to add an ice ball, I tend to reach for these glasses.
    Enoch, glad you like yours. (And since this post makes me sound like one, No I'm not a Sun's Tea salesperson).

    Hahaha. May sound snobbish

    It's not at all like the picture. It feels a little cheap like plastic, the opening too big. I guess I'm just too used to the Glencairn glasses that's all. The only other glass I use are the ORVW glasses.

    The concept is nice though.

    Re: Favorite Glass?

    I collect taster glasses from craft beer breweries. Since they usually hold about 4 oz. they are a nice size to drink bourbon. My favorite are the ones that look like small brandy sniffers but a lot hardier. Here are two I got at Broken Compass (breckenridge) and Crooked Stave (denver).

    Hardy goes a long way with me. I'm down to about 15 of my original 24 glens.

    I ordered and am looking forward to receiving two 5oz Stolzle Glencairn/Copita glasses from Cobhthaigh Celtique. I placed the order around 1PM and they were shipped three hours later to be delivered Friday.

    Got my Copita glasses. They're pretty nice to be honest. I can see myself using them quite a bit.

    Here's a picture of one next to a regular Glencairn:
