The Best Whiskey Glasses For Your Home Bar

If you've already stocked up on our guide to the best whiskey to buy now, then you're no-doubt considering the right glassware to serve it in. The right dram deserves the right chalice to enjoy it in, particularly if you've invested in a rare whisky, and so we've rounded up the best whiskey glasses for your home bar.

What is the difference between whiskey glasses?

There are different styles of whiskey glasses designed to enhance the nosing experience. The tulip and Glencairn style glasses with the longer, narrow neck, these are the more common option for nosing, seen at whiskey tastings and competitions. Then you have the tumbler, a popular choice for the home especially. Tumblers are designed to accommodate a cube or two of ice and are often weightier to give a greater sense of luxury.
