I prefer the regulars for sipping neat or for serious analysis--as serious as it is possible for me to get. For drinking, especially in summer, I prefer a rocks glass with a heavy bottom. My favorites are WT glasses from the distillery. They hold a generous serving and they taper slightly to benefit the nose more than glasses that flair out like the 4R glasses.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    go to Crate and Barrel- they have the regular and Canadian versions cheap as well as several other varieties of whiskey glassware.

    Re: Does shape make a difference?

    In my experience, I would say so. Drinking whiskey out of a Mason jar is a very different experience than drinking it out of Glencairn glassware.
