    One of the stemless wine glasses? They seem lousy for wine, but I thought they would be nice for whiskey. Do you like them?

    In my opinion, they kick the crap out of the Reidel bourbon glass. YMMV.

    Jim,

    That's a nice photo and a very appealing glass, as well. It looks like a combination of the Reidel and the Glencairn.

    Yours truly,

    Jim,

    I agree without even laying hands on the glass you have.

    I always feel as though I'm on the verge of snapping the dainty, little stem of my Reidel glasses. When I'm drinking a manly drink, I want the feel of the glass to be compatible.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    They have those all over the place here in Lexington. I'm heading to "The Wine Shoppe" in Nicholasville after work, so I think I'll pick up a set and give them a try.

    I think that glass is beautiful. I very recently read that you're supposed to hold the glass by the stem so that the warmth of the hand does not heat up the liquid. But I don't remember if the writer was talking about wine or whiskey or both. But with my recent habit of heating Wild Turkey 101 in the microwave for 8 seconds on cold nights, I can see the advantage of getting a little hand heat in these glasses. Plus I agree with Dave about the feel of the glass in your hand.
