Thread: Favorite Glass?

    Re: Favorite Glass?

    I found the the same glass at an antique store in MN!

It's hard to get a good picture but it basically says only use 100 proof OF. It has different measuring lines for the 100 proof equivalent of having a shot of 86 and 90 proof whiskey.

    Hands down my mini Glencarn I got at a WhiskyLive event. It is small enough that vapor does not blast the nose, and due to its small size be robust enough to not require pussyfootin around when handling.

    Re: Favorite Glass?

    Been revising my Riedel Ouverture bourbon glasses lately after loving the Canadian Glencairns.

    Remembering why I like these so much. They are a nice tasting glass.

    I got this little 1/2 pint Glencairn water pitcher the other day. It's pretty cool for adding a tiny bit of water to your favorite dram.

    Re: Favorite Glass?

    I have: Glencairns, old fashioned tumblers, NEAT glasses, and Riedel Vinum Brandy Snifters. Glencairns do my general heavy lifting, so I guess they are my favorite. Tumblers are for when I have guests who don't want to drink out of some silly looking glass and/or there is an off note in a whiskey that the glencairn really highlights. The NEAT glasses were for cask strength whiskies, but have been supplanted by the Riedel Vinum snifters. At this point, I'm struggling to find a use for the NEAT glasses, but it's like anything else: I'm certain down the road I'll find a whiskey that tastes the best when drunk from a NEAT glass.

    I am interested in the NEAT glasses. Do they live up to the hype?

    Cheers!

    The NEAT glasses are, well- neat. While similar to the Glencairn, I find them much easier to nose with.
    However, they can be a little hard to drink from, especially getting those last few drops.

    Now that I think about it, I don't use the NEAT glasses as much, since I got some Canadian Glencairns.

    On a not-so-related note, I picked up this Mixing Pitcher today: http://www.totalwine.com/eng/product...sign/138997920

    I had purchased a similar one online recently, but the pour spout was so tiny, I often ended up spilling around the edge of the strainer.
    I'll be trying this one out tonight.

    Do the Canadian glencairns function similarly to the NEAT? The design is somewhat similar.

    Cheers

    I find the Canadian Glencairn easier to drink from than the NEAT.
    The liquid has to kind of "get over the hump" with the NEAT, so it's not always easy to drain.
    The Canadian Glencairn offers a little more breathing room than the traditional Glencairn.
