My first Glencairn came from Value Village and was engraved with the Glen Breton labeling. It's the older variety and I still enjoy having it, always in my guitar case.
My cut crystal Glencairn's are much nicer, but still obviously kin to their predecessor and they all see plenty of usage.

I love doing this, but the one drink I love that doesn't fare well over time is Laphroaig, and while I'll usually finish any part of a dram that sat overnight, I toss it if it was Laphroaig.
