Room temp is good for whiskey. Don't worry about special ice or water. Maybe also have a small bottle of water on hand in case she wants to add a splash.

If you're not sure if she likes ice or not then I'd go with Canadian Glencairn Glasses. They've got the tulip shape which helps enhance the nose but they're wide enough to accommodate ice unlike other tulip-shaped glasses.

The Reddit Gifts Store used to sell it.

It is a Sandblasted version of this Glencairn:

Its technically a canadian whiskey glass, but its an awesome glass for some high gravity beers and is actually what the Bruery's black tuesday glasses are.

I actually bought a bottle of 'The Glenlivet 12' (Scotch) and it came with two of these glasses. Here is a link to the closest glass I could find to mine. Typically you'll want to find something tulip shaped, as it helps with nosing and aromatics.

I even find Glencairns opening is too small. I really love the Canadian Whiskey glasses made by the same company as Glencairns....

IDK but i got some a while back..

Yeah, those are great for tasting whisk(e)y - this style can also be good and is a bit bigger if one should ever like to make a cocktail or use ice: "Canadian Glencairn".

Tasting - as in really thinking about the smells flavors writing down notes - ice will only dull your tongue and not help, and the regular Glencairns might be too small to fit ice cubes. If you ever like to make cocktails (more common with bourbon/rye than scotch for sure) like Manhattans, old Fashioneds, or just have some booze over a few ice cubes, the Canadian may be a bit better and they are still very nice for "tasting" neat. Just my 2 cents - I have both styles and even just bought a "NEAT" glass but haven't tried it yet.

Those are a very good price, and they look pretty only concern is that the base seems both a little lighter and a little narrower than the pricier Glencairns. But they have great reviews, so I'd probably go for it if I needed any!

I also like whisky tots (sometimes called whisky bowl glasses or Canadian whisky glasses), like these, but it's harder to find bargains on these (which is why I didn't even mention them at first):

u/ITNinja · 1 pointr/whiskey

I believe it's this one. It's a Glencairn glass but it's the larger one.

u/HollowWiener · 1 pointr/winnipegjets

Does he have nice whisky drinking glasses? A glencairn is a must for any whisky lover, and the canadian glencairn is a very comfortable glass to drink out of.

u/Quorum_Sensing · 1 pointr/Scotch

I like the Canadian whiskey Glencairns too. I use them for bourbon mostly, but they are significantly more stable.

u/brbcoding · 1 pointr/bourbon

That's what I've been using lately and I love it (these ones).

And to the OP: I recently ordered a bourbon neat at a bar and it ended up being served chilled in a martini glass ಠ_ಠ. Whatever you do, do not do that.

I have a few dram glasses, glencairns, and Canadian whisky glasses (came with the Jack Single Barrel Christmas set last year) that I prefer. Feel sturdy enough to me. I also brought back a Yamazaki rocks glass and a tasting glass from the distillery. I have enough options at reasonable price points for nosing, cocktails, rocks, or neat that I don't feel the need to pay a bundle for these pretty glasses that might break if I look askance at them.

I've seen these Brumate BN8G Nos'R glasses a few times that are pretty (except that they're opaque) and nigh indestructible for $24.95 each on Amazon.
