I have three of these shot glasses. They came from Pottery Barn I believe, but that was a few Halloweens back so you probably won’t find them there.

Here I found them on Amazon.

Ideally you want a tulip-shaped glass when drinking neat, it will give you a better nosing experience by directing/concentrating the fumes. Same reason you use a large bowl-shaped or tulip-shaped glasses for red wine.

That said, I think a glencairn is less than optimal for anything more than a small taste of lower- to moderate-proof whiskey. It has the tapered shape to concentrate the nose, but it's actually a little too concentrated for stuff like barrel proof unless you just really enjoy smelling ethanol fumes.

The biggest issue with the glencairn though, is it's just too small. The nose develops due to air exposure, and the larger the surface area of your whiskey in the glass, the more quickly (and more fully) the nose will develop. When you pour 1.5-2 oz into a glencairn the surface area is actually quite small relative to the volume of liquid.

IMHO you'll get a better nosing experience for high-proof stuff by using a small rocks glass, or some sort of tulip-shaped glass with a larger bowl than a glencairn. My personal favorite is the Taylor'd Milestone.

Detailed description, as required by sidebar and bot:

Handcrafted in Los Altos, the highlands region of Jalisco, El Espolón reveals the essence of Mexico. At its core is the spirit of the iconic rooster, a symbol synonymous with Mexico's proud history. This tequila is a tribute to the Mexican artists who inspired the world with their true portrayals of the rich, storied culture of Mexico. El Espolón takes you to where people celebrate everyday life - it pours you into the heart of real Mexico.

It is a 100% agave tequila añejo, distilled in San Nicolas, brought by Hecho & Envasado. It has a clean bright sweetness on first taste, developing a warm subtle spice, finishing with a cool green citrus cactus breeze.

It is served in a novelty shot glass, a 30ml glass cup, pierced with a .308 round, made in the USA, which we normally use to incentivise the winner of Russian Roulette World Championship with Русский Стандарт vodka.

Oh, also there's a fucking S&W wheelgun in the way. My FBI grandfather shot bad guys with it in the 50s or something.

I found them at my local grocery store, Dillon's, but it looks like Amazon has even tinier ones! So cute!

u/GrrArgh · 8 pointsr/moderatelygranolamoms

We use the Montessori method of introducing a small cup of water with meals at 6 months. We just used a thick glass shot glass with an inch of water at a time. My LO picked it up pretty quick. I found a shot glass at good Will with a handle like a mug and it’s perfect!

Now when my LO needed more milk around 13 months we used strawcups because she needed the calories otherwise I would’ve kept using the small cup.

We used these glasses they’ve been dropped on wood floor and never shattered

For those asking about the shot glass, this is what I bought, if linking is kosher:

My favorite thing to do with it is make an Irish hand grenade, the bullet sticking out makes it easy to stage against the Bailey's shot glass.

u/Leesburgcapsfan · 6 pointsr/whiskey

What, everybody else said, despite the nice presentation, rocks are kind of a gimic.

Might i recommend instead.

Great news! They have the exact glencairn shape on a stem:

The one I am using is a 1920s blenders glass:

It’s pricy, but it really does accentuate more subtle aromas in older drams. A glencairn, or stemmed glencairn is the way to go for day to day use. Cheers.

Perhaps you might be interested in this? This is easily my favorite/go to glass.. Big enough for ice if that's what you want, wide heavy base.

u/j4ni · 3 pointsr/Scotch

Sorry for the delay, been busy :/
I got them as a present as the Glencairn Travel Set, I'm not sure if you can get them on their own. /u/Devoz was guilty of fixing me on them. They are awesome (though there is no difference in smell, taste or anything about the whisky)! Here's a link to the German amazon site, I guess you'll find them otherwhere as well ;)

u/ShesTyping · 3 pointsr/kratom

You can also get really small mason jars as well, I actually prefer them for my purse just to be extra safe!

u/pinkmagedon · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Flower petals, fake may work better, but I think their pretty classy.

ice I know it may not last long, but you could make a bunch of these and stick them in a bowl for center peices, and possibly put some black glitter in the bottom of it. Extra points if you can somehow get some uhm...that weird ice stuff that makes things smokey. That'd be boss.

I'm trying to think of cheap Ideas, haha.

The only other idea I have, is to get skull shot glasses like this and fill them with purple dyed water/glitter ect. Very small, but still something. Could even get the petals to go around it.

orrr get something like this to go in a smaller sugar skull vase/cup.

These are neat! They look kind of purpley and small. You could get again, flower petals, or silk flowers to border them. That would be cute.

I found this on google. Could probably make it by hand but its a little out there.

Doily + candle., could even use the no flame ones I linked.

I hope your wedding is absolutely wonderful! I demand pictures, because that seriously seems like an awesome idea and I'm pretty jelly. I wanna see how it turns outttt!

Episode 1: A Noob Hopes

In a galaxy far, far away

A long time lurker decides to sack up

and provide some horrible reviews

for some good scotch.

On to the review....

end scroll


What's being reviewed: Compass Box Peat Monster

In what: Glencairn on steroids. This one actually.Let's forego the rest of the details since you all know it by now.

Pre-drink thoughts: I like Compass Box (tried the Muse at a bar, loved it, bought a bottle 2 weeks later. That's a review for another day). But I'm not sure if I like peat. But the wife does and this is a hobby I'd like to share with her, especially since I plan on spending our money on it - so why not try something she might enjoy as well.

Nose: Smoke. Nasal burn. Light band-aid-y scents.Taste: Faint smoke, kind of like how I would imagine what my shirt would taste like the morning after a bonfire. There's a sweetness to this as well. A hint of something salty I think.

Finish: Might be me, but the finish seems long. It's smokey, It stays with me after the exhale, it a memory. (Also that medicinal note is there too)

Rating: * * * *Would I buy again: Yes absolutely

Final Note: This review is being written without notes to reference, as I want to only convey the parts that really stick with me. Plus, I can't discern things like "malty peat", "hammy fruit jam", "wafting fields of baby octopus tentacles", hence the very short descriptors.

================Rating System (stars)

  • 1 = nope. never again
  • 2 = will drink if offered for free
  • 3 = would not buy a bottle, but would buy at a bar
  • 4 = must have on hand at home at all times
  • 5 = cream of my crop. willing to pay premium for a bottle.

u/drummer_girl · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We just kind of dove in. We offered a cup at mealtimes, and once he got more of that in his mouth than on his lap, we started offering a cup throughout the rest of the day too. Right now, we offer a regular cup like this shot glass whenever he asks for water, and he has access to one of the 360 cups full of water on a low shelf in the dining room at all times.

u/SpecialSharpie1230 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The cheapest thing for me is a skull shot glass. I recently turned 21 and only have cheap $1 plastic shot glasses from Target.

Fear: My wife dying and leaving me with my daughter. I spend so much time at work that I don't know all of the little details about my daughter and I'd be so lost.

Pet peeve: People who drag me away from something, and then say nevermind.

Food: Probably spaghetti.

u/SmokyPeat1 · 1 pointr/Brandy

Semi random question but what do you call those glasses? I need to have some. Could you hit me back with a link for amazon? Are they these?

Joey Magnus or some Glencairns. Even a Glencairn Tasting/Carrying Set.

I was just about to suggest that you gift yourself, not realizing it was you. i was about to post a commenting telling the person doing this contest to gift /u/IguanaGrrl then i noticed that you were the one who was doing the contest. haha, awkward huh? but I guess other than gifting you something because you're such an awesome person I would love a gift for my boyfriend. he is obsessed with skulls and I love surprising him with gifts. most of the gifts i give him are hand made, just as you do.

thanks for the contest as well!

u/iAmGingerJoe · 1 pointr/coffeestations

I use these to measure my pull. They do suck to pour out of though (I recommend an aeropress style flip). There are much much better ones but these were the cheapest.

Have you checked out this badass crystal skull glass? to tip you over to 101% badassness?

Just bought a couple as xmas gifts, they're pretty slick.

TL;DR - Standard answer, the Glencairn glass (the official {Scotch} Whisk(e)y glass). My current favorite though is the Taylor'd Milestones Reserve Whiskey and Scotch Glasses available HERE

I'm by no means an expert, but I have tried many different shapes of glassware over the years... So, here are some of my experiences.

The standard highball/lowball, with their straight 🥃 (or even at times obtuse _/ ) sides, allows for too much area for many of the aromatics in the whisky to disperse and even escape, making the whisky very bland and uninteresting, thereby "weakening" or "taming" it a bit. Hence, this is where most people start.

Something with a bit of a bowl or tulip (_) to it is kind of the next step up. This helps to concentrate the aromas and can help to bring out some of the subtleties of a good whisky.

Then there is the Glencairn style glasses, which kind of combine the previous two. It is a slightly bowled base with the straightened tip of a lowball. This is the official Scotch Whisky glass, and does a really great job at really getting you intimately close with your whisky, bringing out even the slightest nuances. However, to me, this can be a bit much for whisky that is a little heavy on the nose.

So, the 3 different glasses that I have tried that use a very similar shape to the Glencairn, but widen the rim up a bit, thereby taming the nose ever so slightly, are the Canadian Glencairn, the Norlan, and the Taylor'd Milestones Reserve Whiskey and Scotch Glasses.

The Canadian Glencairn is a great glass but there are two things that bug me a bit about it. First off, it is slightly awkward to drink out of, as you nearly have to put the glass vertical before anything comes out. The second, much more minor issue, is that your hand is right on your whisky only separated by a very thin layer of glass, which will lead to warming up your whisky. Which you may or may not enjoy.

Then came the Norlan glass. It is essentially a Glencairn glass with some aerators in the bowl housed in a double walled tulip shaped glass, that way your hand will not warm up your whisky with a lingering enjoyment of a good dram. However, again, to me, it is just slightly awkward to sip from.

Enter the Taylor'd Milestones Reserve Whiskey and Scotch Glasses. And mentioned above, this is currently my favorite glass to enjoy a nice dram in. It is essentially a Glencairn this has an opening that is about 1.5 times the diameter (which can tame a slightly heavy nosing whisky just the right amount), and then a nice lowball type weight at the bottom of it. So, it feels great in the hand, and you don't have to have your hand right on the whisky if you don't want to. It also feels much more natural to sip from.

The link to the Taylor'd Milestones Reserve Whiskey and Scotch Glasses is at the top, but here are some links to some legit Glencairns.

The original Glencairn - 2 pack, 4 pack, or 6 pack

I would recommend that you use either the seller Stock Your Home or Our Pampered Home, as they both sell the official legitimate Glencairn glassware, and tend to be one of the lowest priced ones as well. There are a substantial amount of fakes out there! So, here are the same links, but for Stock Your Home (if available).

Original - 2 pack, 4 pack, or 6 pack

And then for Our Pampered Home (if available).

Original - 2 pack, 4 pack, or 6 pack

(Sorry for the delayed post, I've had a busy past couple of days)

All the best... Enjoy!
