An appreciation of whiskey is not limited to the Scots: my Swedish parents always keep whiskey in their liquor cabinet (it's the preferred drink of my father and his friends). Early on, my husband, Brandon, figured out a way to win my father over—by bringing him a special bottle every time we visit Sweden.

Here are five of our favorite (high and low ball) whiskey glasses.

Above: The Top Class 12.25 Ounce High Ball Glass by Luigi Bormioli is $5.19 at Bloomingdale's.

Above: T.e 007 Whiskey Glass from Thomas Eyck, $43 at YLiving.

Above: Alessi II Whiskey Glass by Italian duo Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni; $138 for a set of six at All Modern.

Above: Iittala Aarne Double Old Fashioned; a set of two is $55 at All Modern.

Above: Riedel Vinum Single Malt Whiskey Glass; a set of two is $39.95 at Willams-Sonoma. The flared lip to this glass is supposed to enhance your perception of the whiskey's flavor.
