    Anyone have experience with the NEAT glasses?

    I almost bought a set, not sure if its worth it at the price of almost $20 a glass. They like to advertise these are the official glass of some tasting in the past. The shape looks worth testing, but I already have hard to beat glencairns and thats 40 I would rather spend on another bottle to savor.

    Nope, but they sure look like they would be a pain in the ass to sip out of with that big "hump" to get over.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I tried a tasting with Glencairn, old fashioned and neat glasses. Glencairn had the best smell closely followed by the old fashioned. I swear I didn't smell anything out of the neat glasses.

    I've got a set. Prefer my Glancairns, and like Joe said, they can be a PITA to sip from.
    That said, I pull 'em out on occasion (usually when i don't have enough Glencairns to go around).

    I've been wanting to try the "Canadian Glencairn" myself.

    I have a couple. I like them okay. It's a different and pleasurable experience to drink from them. That said, I still tend to reach for a Glencairn or something similar, or a plain, old on-the-rocks glass.
