About the Glencairn Whisky Nosing Copita Glass

The Glencairn Nosing Copita Glass can be used for both whisky and sherry. The distilleries use this relatively small tulip bowled glass to nose the newly made spirit and their Master Blenders when nosing whiskies to be used in upcoming blends. It has been historically known as a ‘Dock Glass’ as they were used at the docks in the 17th and 18th centuries when newly arrived shipments had to be nosed before the load was accepted and signed for.

The tulip shape of the bowl allows the liquid to be swirled sufficiently before nosing, and the small opening retains the alcohol vapours and concentrates the nose. Once the sherry or whisky has been poured, it is always a great idea to seal the glass with a cover such as a tasting cap, then swirl and leave for a few minutes to let it stand and allow the aromas to intertwine with the oxygen and develop sufficiently. The perfect nose!

A Whisky Tasting Cap can be used with the Glencairn Nosing Copita Glass.
