Why not use a water glass for drinking brandy and cognac?

Sometimes people just drink brandy in a waterglass + ice cubes. Actually, this is not a bad idea because if you add ice, the whole drinking experience becomes different anyway. If you drink cognac neat, you should use one of those balloon snifters or tulip glasses. So that’s what you want to do.

Classic Cognac Glass

If you drink cognac mixed, there is really no need to use a brandy balloon glass… because the original taste and aromas vanish any way. So when it comes to ice, cocktails etc. you can basically use any glass you want. But if you drink it neat, pure – use a tulip or a snifter. That’s just critical.
