I’m liking these lately. Got them at the distilleries last year. They’re kinda like a slightly oversized Glencairn without the base.

@BlueNote, love the design and scale, they look to be a bit smaller than Canadian Glencairn glasses.

I’ve not had many days off lately, but when I did organizing and polishing my whisky glassware (and testing the glasses) brought me some much needed relaxation.

@paddockjudge @BlueNote I have two of those same Glenlivet glasses and they are indeed a bit smaller than a Canadian Glencairn. The great thing about the pictured glasses is that they’re casual enough to use for “sipping with non-whisky” friends, but are still tapered enough to allow a proper nosing experience.

@paddockjudge one must never forget the all important testing stage. Nice collection.

@Nozinan Hey, when you don’t have many friends, you include as many as you can in the final count. stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

I have absolutely no idea what I will be doing with these glasses, shown with a Glencairn for scale. But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. They look like port pipes on steroids. Unlike the port pipes I have which stand on little pieces of glass these have stems. They look cool. One would have to be very careful sipping something CS through such a big straw...

@Nozinan the 15yr old in me cannot help but think about turning them into some kind of bong

@cricklewood They look like their creator might have been indulging in something medicinal.

@Nozinan WOW These look like the hot items around Denver, CO when Colorado legalized marijuana. : P

As if I would know?! Not!

Or could these be a throwback to retro 70's whisk(e)y culture? Hmmm.

@cricklewood - Ha ha that was my first thought as well laughing

I fear that not getting said bong water into one's mouth would be the challenge here ... Cotton wool in the pipe maybe? lol I'm getting way too invested in this project stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

On that, I once watched a guy drink a whole bongs worth of 'juice' for £5! it didn't stay down long ...

@Nozinan I had a couple of these gifted by Bar Chef back in the day (still have one lying around somewhere).

Definitely more aesthetic than functional.

@JayRain I was thinking of letting my kids drink juice with them but I worry they may take the opportunity to blow bubbles...

I wonder if they would make good soap bubbles.....

My Father's Day gift was this Highland Park jug. I've been after a nice jug for a while so when the wife asked me what I wanted for Father's day I suggested this.

In terms of size, it's slightly larger than a Glencairn. It has a thick base and has a nice 'premium' feel to it. To my mind some of Highland Park's bottles and glassware etc can be a bit OTT like the Louis Vitton handbag of whisky. But the jug is fancy without going overboard.
