Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

They have a tapered mouth that allows you to experience the full aroma of the scotch or whiskey you are enjoying. The bottom bowl selection of the glass allows you still fully appreciate the color of the whiskey while enabling you to stir and warm it.
Tapered mouth. Lead-free crystal. Dishwasher safe.

What reviewers didn't like

Small in size, so you cannot dilute your drink very much, but with good whiskey, you shouldn’t anyway!
As smaller glasses these are unsuitable if you want to add plenty of ice or dilute well.
