Here's something to try, get a number of different glasses, pour a sample of the same whisky into each one, then try them out. Surprisingly we tried this at a tasting and the Glencairn beat out all the others, including the snifter, (sorry Ganga, my friend but it was Whisky Science!)

I agree wholeheartedly.

My take on the matter...

I also use a brandy snifter.

My wife gets embarrassed when I ask for a Glencairn or at least a glass that has an inwardly turned rim relative to the greatest diameter at restaurants. I always retort that it's my money being spent, the bar should be happy to accommodate my request.

I agree that a bar should be happy to accommodate you. It is odd when those in the service profession seem to be put out by a request for service. Sure it is a preference, but it also shows me that an establishment knows at least something about whiskey.

I like to ask for a Glencairn just to see if it is worth getting. Cause I know it will ruin my night if it isn't worth the cash.

Making the request doesn't always end up being a mark of quality in a restaurant. But if someone can get me that glass, then I know there is someone I can complain to.

If they don't have the right glass, I know not even to waste my time. That is unless they have a glass that they are convinced pairs better... but I never had that reaction.
