The Glencairn Glass Frequently Asked Questions

Why It Works

  • REMOVES SPIRIT COLOR - The color coating of the Blind Glencairn masks a spirit's color, which can indicate age, cask type, or other factors that contribute to the flavor profile. By masking the color of the spirit, you are left with only the nose and flavor of the spirit.
  • NOSE - The tapering mouth captures and focuses the aroma on the nose, enhancing the experience of detecting subtle notes of vanilla, smoke, fruit, or spice.
  • BODY - The unique patented shape of the glass is designed to admire the texture, viscosity, and legs of the whisky as it swirls around.
  • PALATE - The glass fits comfortably in the hand and allows the whisky to develop over time, revealing new layers of flavor and aroma.
  • FINISH - Adding a few drops of water can open up the whiskey and release its hidden flavors. The glass is versatile enough to accommodate both neat and watered-down whisky, making it easy to savor the magic of the spirit.
