IS THE SHAPE OF A WHISKEY GLASS IMPORTANT?
It depends on your preference. Glasses with a smaller opening and wider base are designed to enhance the flavors of whiskey, so they are perfect for whiskey lovers who drink their drop neat. If you like a good scotch on the rocks, an Old Fashioned style short tumbler works best because you can fit bigger cubes in it. Highball glasses are preferred if you mix your whiskey, for example into whiskey soda.
