Riedel Sommeliers Single Malt Whiskey Glass

Riedel's premier Sommeliers collection includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by expert wine tasters to flatter a specific fine wine or liquor. This glass, created with extensive input from master Scottish distillers, showcases the best qualities of single malt and other whiskeys. The bowl's elongated thistle shape complements their aromas. The flared lip directs the flow of liquid to the tip of the tongue, which perceives sweetness, allowing you to savor the whiskey's smooth, silky texture. Artisans at Riedel's family-owned factory in Austria craft each exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Hand-washing is recommended. 7-oz. cap., 4 1/2" high.

Have several different whiskey glasses. Love the lightness and especially the "feel" in the hand.
Allows for easy swirling, sniffing and appreciation of the whiskey.
Don't forget to buy the Riedel cleaning cloth for easy drying.
Pros: Appearance, Weight
Cons: Fragile

Brings out the best in scotch
March 12, 2010
I must say, I was a bit skeptical that a glass could really make much of a difference in the aroma and taste but after owning one, I am convinced. I own both this and the cheaper vinum version. I cant say there is any functional difference between the two and the sommeliers is a bit more delicate (yet surprisingly durable) but more aesthetically pleasing. I have had friends try my glasses and be impressed enough to go buy some themselves. All in all the extra money doesn't get you any improvement of function over the vinum, but insofar as I dont fear those I let use them breaking them, I would gladly get the sommelier single malt glass again.
