    Re: Proper glassware?

    I actually like the size of the Woodford Reserve glasses they gave out at the Sampler. I find them just right for a pour with or without ice. Plus they are stamped with the WR logo..
    They don't appear to be on the website though, so I don't know if they can be purchased or not.

    Hello Woodford Wife,

    I have a set of the bourbon glasses by Riedel. They really are quite nice. They are made of potash glass, thus they are sturdy and dishwasher-safe (which is an important factor in my selection).

    I find they work well for robust spirits, such as Bourbon Whiskey, Aged Rum, Aged Tequila, and even Brandy. The glass is just wide enough to allow the spirit to expand, but not so much that the alcohol vapors kill the nose.

    Seeing as how they are not all that expensive, I believe they are certainly worth the price. They also work well for Port and Madeira wine...

    Re: Proper glassware?

    The Glencairn nosing glass is pretty popular here. You can find them at the Bourbon Heritage Center Museum (Heaven Hill Distillery) gift shop. It's a very nice glass. I got a bunch when I visited the Heritage Center last year and have given some away to deserving whiskeyphiles. Here's a link.

    There my favorites for drinking bourbon... they're rather spendy but are just (for me anyway) the right size and perfectly heavy. (I like a little heft to my glass).

    I got them here:

    There's no better glass for a great bourbon or a nice single malt than The Glencairn Glass. Available at www.cobhthaighceltique.com

    Re: Proper glassware?

    The Glencairn glass is beautiful, especially if you get a glass cover for it.

    This just in; The Glencairn company just collaborated with Canadian whisky makers to create a glass specifically for Canadian whisky, though it has been suggested that it would do well with American and Irish too. It is kind of a cross between the Glencairn and an old-fashioned glass. Looks promising...

    EDIT: Oops, old thread. Not my fault!
