Purchased as a gift for a friend who got compliments on them the first time he used them.

Great weight and size for spirits- not too heavy or large. Bell shaped mouth is great for nosing whiskeys similar to the Official Glencairn Scotch Whisky glasses, but with a wider mouth to make adding ice much easier.

My only cons for the product are silly ones: they are individually boxed and labeled as "Official Canadian Whisky" glasses (not in the description on this site), reinforced with a maple leaf etched on the bottom of each glass which together can be off-putting to give as a gift for someone who doesn't enjoy Canadian whisky. The maple leaf is quite elegant, though, and non-obtrusive without the label on the box.

I would have ditched the boxes if they didn't make wrapping easier and didn't bear the Glencairn name.

Also, it would be nice to be able to, since they are individually boxed, purchase them individually. I would have preferred to gift a set of 6 instead of a set of 4, but 8 seemed overkill.

Ordered as a Christmas gift for a relative who is a single malt Scotch drinker. Although the ad in the catalog did state that the glass is "etched with the Canadian maple leaf on the bottom," I was surprised at the size of the etched leaf. Perhaps ad should be for Canadian whisky glasses, rather than Glencairn Whisky Glasses!

    Pros

    • Dishwasher Safe
    • Thick Glass

    Cons

    • Looks like a Promo Gift
    • Maple leaf

    Best Uses

    • High-end disposable

    Comments about Glencairn Wide-Bowl Whisky Glasses (Set of 4):

    If you click on 'additional views' you will see a prominent maple leaf etched on the bottom. My guess is a Canadian Whiskey maker dumped these at a great price so you could offer as a sale item.
    I have opened only two and each has a clear 'bump' along the rim. Not a quality product. I have spent thousands on glassware with Wine Enthusiast - I am not cheap. Anyone in my home will think these were a promo gift.
    You get what you pay for - beware.

    I use these delightful glasses for neat sipping and on the rocks enjoyment of all whiskeys. I have never known a true "Connoisseur" who would quibble over a $10.00 glass unless, of course, he entertains in a museum. LOL, I live in a home so, Atlanta "Connoisseur" - Get Over Yourself!

        My wife bought these glasses for me for Christmas. I enjoy a "wee dram" of Scotch in the evenings. These glasses do make a difference in enhancing the smell and flavor of the Scotch and they are attractive also.

          gave to husband for birthday to enjoy his single malt scotch. A big hit. Design is elegant and allows the drinker to fully appreciate the beverage. Addition of an initial is a nice touch.

              Ink was smeared on bottom of 1 glass. I would expect a higher quality standard for the price. But, still very nice whiskey glasses.

              We own a set and just bought one as a Christmas gift for friends. We recommend washing by hand. One of ours chipped, but it was probably due to our carelessness. Great looking glasses, you won't be disappointed.
