The first whiskey glass you should know about is the tumbler. This is the most common whiskey glass as many whiskey drinkers and non-whiskey drinkers associate this tumbler with whiskey. Tumblers are very short with wide bowls. You can fit the tumbler perfectly in your hand because of its shortness.

The snifter is great for testing out new whiskeys because smell in whiskey is very important. You should get snifters as your personalized whiskey glass if you want to taste and smell different whiskeys.
