I've been enjoying these particular glasses for a while now and thought it made sense to share them with others who may like to get their own.
Everyone knows the classic Glencairn glass, and some are even aware of the cut crystal ones, but my personal favorite is the diamond cut version.
Much as I like my plain Glencairn, the diamond cut both feels nice, and being real crystal (but lead free), rings as only crystal can when toasting. I really like the feel in my hand too, especially since my favorite drams stay in the glass, which in turn stays in my hand while I take turns at savoring the aroma.
No pics yet, but I'll try to post some soon. I got them from a site called ClassicHostess
and for what I find to be a very reasonable cost of just over $15 per glass in a set of four.
By contrast, the simpler cut crystal glasses run much higher for just a pair.
My other favorite is a small just-larger-than-shot-glass tumbler with a tapered top by German maker Spiegelau. These have been with me for a few months now and I had to give away a couple of the first ones I bought when one of my friends decided they could not be parted with.
I'll try to get pics of both of these up within the next few days.
