The Whiskey Glass Challenge


3 Different Whiskeys meet 3 Different Glasses

Sometimes, it’s not only what’s in the glass that matters. But what about the glass itself?

Traditionally the tumbler has been seen as the vessel of choice for the majority of whiskey drinkers and the ‘whiskey snifter’ relegated to the small group of true whiskey tasters. Denver & Liely have now combined these worlds.

According to them, “The hand-blown shape of the D&L Whiskey Glass combines the benefits of taste and smell associated with a traditional whiskey snifter with the versatility and style of a classic tumbler [and] the wide base maximizes the surface area of a standard measure, funneling the aromas through the tapered body to the optimally sized opening.”

But we’re not just going to take their word for it.

Back Label Wines will be hosting a “Whiskey Glass Challenge,” presented by, Whiskey Roundtable, and sponsored by Virgil Kaine Whiskey, in which 3 different styles of glasses will face it off with 3 different whiskeys each. And you get to be the judge. Will you still prefer that old set of tumblers you got in college? Discover you actually prefer a wine glass? Or maybe D&L is right, and you will have finally found the perfect whiskey glass.
