Detailed Commentary

First thing I can say is these glasses are very striking in appearance.  They have a curvy shape that could impress most people.  They are also very durable, while being light.  I have dropped them and they do not break.  They also hold the heat of the shot very well and I am impressed by this quality, as I do not have to preheat the glasses before I pull a shot.  The shots taste really good in these glasses.  I really don't like that they cost almost $12 for two glasses, but they are worth it.  The glass is hand blown and adds to the wow factor when impressing your guests.  The glass is very light and feels fragile, however, I have dropped these and they are solid for their lightness.  

Overall, I am very impressed by these glasses, and they fit comfortably fit in the drawer of my coffee bar.

Buying Experience

A little more of a pain than I would have liked, as I was using a gift card to pay for these.  They make the process a little more difficult than I like.
