The most common type of glass used to serve scotch is the snifter. This style of glassware is often referred to as a brandy snifter. It allows the scotch to be swirled to enhance flavor.
Another style of glass used to serve scotch and whiskey is the old-fashioned glass. This glass is designed with a wide rim so that the aroma of the liquor can be fully enjoyed. It is also known as a lowball glass.
If scotch is served mixed with another type of alcohol, then it should be served in the hi-ball glass. This glass is tall and offers a greater liquid capacity.
