Good on them for not inflating the price for collectors, coz they easily could have and sold all thousand glasses imo. How do you know how much whisky you've poured though? :D

I know just the person to get one of these for, they always moan about the black bottles you sometimes get special edition whiskies in, they are impossible to judge how much you have left when coming to the end of the bottle.

Unless it's for investment! Why on earth would you want or need a black glencairn? Weird .

I think it looks good, but useless unless you wanted to do a blind blind tasting.

Yes it would be ideal for a blind tasting.

As it happens I think it looks awful, I don't like coloured glass in any shape or form. However, that's a subjective opinion. You asked why anyone would buy it - the only thing that has changed is how it looks - other people will like it or enjoy that it's unusual and that's why they'll buy it.

Its something different to add to my wee collection of tasting glasses, I will have one, I wonder if they will limit the number you can purchase as I wouldn't mind a few.

I think I would get a few as I quite often have friends around for dinner and whisky tastings so this could be a little but more fun added to the night..

I’m getting one. I pass no comment on how good it is until they turn up but certainly will have a place in my glass cabinet.

Agreed If you can`t see the colour of your whisky not sure what the point is to be honest apart from the novelty value?

How would that be an investment, really why would you want something so ugly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder I assume, maybe I am just old fashioned?
