I'm Raquel, a student from Leuven, Belgium. For a school project, I'm assigned to do research about a new business idea: to make whisky glasses out of the recycled wood of the barrels. We want to know if there is interest in this idea, as I'm not a whisky specialist myself.
Feel free to fill in the survey underneath. You would help me a lot, because apparently you guys are the real specialists!

Interesting idea! I am honest to say that I would most likely not use a Glencairn made of wood, for several reasons:
“That's what I do. I drink, and I know things.” (Tyrion Lannister)>>> Whisky reviews by Slàinte Mhath <<<
I would also not use a wooden glass as for the reasons @SlàinteMhath listed.
Seeing the colour of whisky is important. Also to swirl it around in a glass to see how "oily" he whisky is.
Then you have the cleanliness of the wood. Glass is much easier to keep hygienic.
However, some people may buy something like that if it is beautifully done as an ornament.
you consider using the wood as a glencairn glass holder, say a box customised to store 6 glencairns.
in Japan, the Pioneer audio company has used old Suntory whisky barrels to make hifi speaker box, and due to the density of the wood, the sound is pretty damn awesome.
@Raquel_Moeyaert I dont know about a 'glass', but traditionally, Scotch Whisky was consumed out of a wooden bowl called a Quaich. There's even a picture of Prince Charles drinking Laphroaig out of one floating around online. This would probably be your best bet. Let us know how the project turns out!

this ritual drinking equipment was not used for savoring whisky but to ritually sign a contract of a young man into the army of a clan.
