Kentucky and Tennessee keep a careful watch on their bourbons and as such, bourbon has become one of America’s favorite and most respected whiskies. The question I often receive about bourbon, and the other whiskies, is about how to drink it. 

No, not about if it should be enjoyed chilled or room temperature, or if it is better straight or in a mixed drink. 

Many people wonder if bourbon should be consumed from a special glass, or will any old glass do? There are many bourbon glasses on the market and people wonder if they are legit, or just another gimmick.

I won’t be the one to tell you that you must drink whiskey from a special cup. Hell, drink it straight from the bottle if that’s your thing!

However, just like eating, we drink with our eyes first. So, seeing the beauty that is bourbon before it’s even touched our lips goes a long way in stimulating our brains. If you’ve poured that whiskey into a glass that has a wide mouth, well, you’re releasing many aromas that will also please the brain during the entire bourbon drinking experience. 

Yes, there are definitely gimmicky bourbon glasses out there. So, before you get lost in the trenches of the thousands of bourbon glasses on the market, consider a few of these best bourbon glasses
