I find when I am tasting a new bourbon, or really tasting for any reason, that I use a brandy snifter. However, when I am simply enjoying a bourbon (backyard, dog at feet, bluegrass playing, after dinner) I tend to use these glasses that I picked up from Wal-Mart. They were like eight bucks for a four-pack, have an inch thick glass bottom, and are a standard highball style other than that. I love these glasses because of the thick bases on them. Ninety percent of the time, I prefer my bourbon at room temperature, but I find that in most of my glasses my hand ever-so-slightly elevates the temperature of my drink. I find that the thick base of these glasses prevents that. Anybosy else have something like that?
