Riedel Vinum Single Malt Whiskey Glasses
Don't look now, but it might be time to stop sipping your whiskey out of an old paint can - it'll help the flavor immensely. All kidding aside, we tend to drink our whiskey (and whisky, for that matter) out of rocks or wine glasses, but we really like the look of these whiskey tasting glasses.
Crafted with the help of master distillers in Scotland, this pair of glasses maximizes the sipping pleasures of top-quality single malt whiskey, malt whiskey, and whiskey. The shape is both charming and purposeful, with a squat stem and an elongated body, and the lip turns outward to allow for the best perception of sweetness and cream in the liquor. With a 7-ounce full capacity, each glass is 4-1/2 inches high. Washing by hand is recommended.

These glasses aren't about hype, they enhance the experience of sampling single malt. I have tasters' glasses as well, and while I'll concede that nosing is better done with the tasters', there is no comparison drinking scotch out of the two styles; the Riedel glass wins hands down. Try it yourself!
