    Ralfy, such a classy chap, and you still don't have a Norlan glass?

    Caldron is a perfect way to describe humanity. Very interesting video ralfy. The proper glass is also very important for beer as well.

    You are right! The old Glencairn glasses were a lot more durable. Thicker glass at the top as well. I've had a few Glencairns bounce on the floor in my time. I still have a Dalwhinnie glass with a tiny chip on the base from when I dropped it. I once dropped a Glencairn water jug. That shattered into a million pieces. After spending an hour picking up all the pieces I am sure we picked up from the floor much more glass than made up the original jug.

    I do really like the Cut Crystal Glencairn. I bought two on offer at the Glen Grant distillery. Whisky looks wonderful as it catches the light. It's also heavier which I like.

    I think the Glenmorangie copitas are the perfect shape and opening. A lot of copitas are two narrow at the opening. The Glencairn ones are OK but I don't like the piece of eye-monacle glass for a top that comes with them. Easily chipped and lost. The Glenmorangie ones come with a Pagoda like top. Really nice!

    The distilleries like Tullibardine, who, instead of Glencairns or Copitas, sell whisky tumblers, are, in my opinion, not doing themselves any favours!
