[Best Buy] Glencairn 320ml Canadian Whiskey Glass $5.99

$1 cheaper than the last sale price. Need $30 to qualify for free shipping but can PM at other retailers such as here.

This looks like it's an oversized version of the regular glencairn class, 320ml vs 200ml. Would this be too wide for nosing?

I love my 200ml glencairn glass but feels a little pretentious whenever I use them as some casual drinkers rarely would recognize the glass and i would need to explain it improves the drinking experience as opposed to my lowball glasses.

This being said, if the 320ml version doesn't offer the same experience since the wider brim seems to allow more of the aroma to escape, then better off using a classy looking lowball glass.

Does anyone have an experience with this specific glass?

OP needs to change the title. This is NOT the Glencairn scotch glass! It is the oversized Glencairn Canadian one. These are designed for Canadian whisky, where you have to add a lot of ice or mixer to make it half palette able. If you are using the smaller scotch Glencairn, stick with it. I’ve gotten a few of these Canadian ones over the years and I end up giving them away. They are not much of a nosing glass.

Thanks for this OP! I've been looking for a deal on these. They're usually around $10.99. Possible PM opportunity at bed bath and beyond?

These are definitely bigger than the normal glencairn glasses but are preferable to some since they have weight and are more like a tumbler. Very nice glasses.

The original Glencairn scotch glass is only good for lower alcohol content whiskies below 45% or so, which is most of the Scotch whisky. Anything that is stronger than 45%, like cask strength whiskies, get a far too concentrated nose in the original Glencairn scotch glass, which is why they make a wider brim glass. When you get the right brim size for the whisky alcohol content, the better nose does make it more enjoyable.
