There are a ton of options for whiskey glass sizes and shapes, but some of the most popular in the United States include:

  1. The Glencairn Glass: The Glencairn Glass is a specially designed whisk(e)y glass that was developed in Scotland and has become a popular choice among bourbon enthusiasts in the United States. It is a unique glass that has a wide bowl, heavy sham, and a narrow mouth, which is designed to concentrate the aroma of the whiskey and release its flavors.

  2. The Neat Glass: The Neat Glass is another popular choice for enjoying bourbon. This glass is designed to be used without any ice, as the shape of the glass allows the whiskey to be fully appreciated in its natural state. The neat glass has a more uniform, traditional straight-up basin and typically has a thick base for a better grip on the drink.

  3. The Snifter Glass: A classic choice for sipping whiskey, the snifter glass is a round-bottomed glass with a stem and a wide bowl that is typically used to serve brandy. Due to its unique shape, the snifter concentrates the aroma and allows you to warm the whiskey in your hand to release the flavor.
