In general, Scotch is a type of whisky produced in Scotland, whereas whisky is a more inclusive term for distilled spirits that encompasses a wide range of styles and varieties.
When it comes to glasses, there are many multiple kinds of glasses that are specially designed for whisky and Scotch, with each kind of glass having its own unique shape and style. Typical types of whisky and Scotch glasses include are:
Tumbler glass: This is a short, broad glass that has plenty of capacity for ice and is often used to serve whisky and other spirits on the rocks.
Old fashioned glass: This lowball-style glass is often used to serve whisky and other alcoholic drinks plain or with a tiny bit of ice.
Glencairn glass: This is a type of whisky glass that is designed primarily for Scotch, with a tulip-shaped bowl that allows the aromas of the Scotch to be concentrated and enhanced.
Copita Glass: This is a kind of glass with a tulip-shaped bowl that resembles a Glencairn glass but is smaller and more slender.
Snifter glass: This kind of glass has a broad bowl that enables swirling and aerating of the spirit to improve its scents and tastes. It is often used for serving brandy but it can also be used for whiskey and Scotch.
