What Whiskey, Rum or Cognac are you drinking today.

How does it work for bourbon? Is it better then a rocks glass? I get overwhelmed by the amount of variety of glass ware for adult drinks
I use it for my finer (i.e., not on the rocks) bourbon selections like Stagg & Blanton's and it's fine, but it's not really my preferred shape for that. There's a glass I just cannot freakin' find anywhere---someone donated it to my local cigar lounge's barware collection & I swear I've actually contemplated STEALING it, lol---that is tulip shaped like that, but shorter, wider, and unfooted.

These are the closest I've found and I'll probably order them eventually:

Spiegalau Bourbon Glasses

My hesitation with them is they're listed as a 13 oz. glass & that seems . . . a bit large. The Glencairn is only 6 oz.

I bought some on Doc's recommendation a long time ago that I loved, but can't remember the brand. I know I gave a couple away when I quit drinking, but might still have 1 or 2.

J.C. Newman owes me royalties.
Last night I poured some Old Forester Rye, a new release of theirs. It wasn't amazing, probably better suited for a Manhattan rather than neat/rocks. Had a glass of Weller SR after that, great as always.
