Hi

I havent tried it but it seems like it'd be fine.

I got my rum sipping glass from Ikea - its a stemless Irvig wine glass.

http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/30144691/

Its wider than the Glencairn Glass & taller than / about the same width as a brandy snifter - it takes about 2.5 oz to its widest point.

Its good for swirling the rum & warming it with your hand but not narrow so the fumes gather too much!

Cheers

After a surprisingly great meal at Twisted Fish in Juneau (surprising only because it was a huge barn of a place and busy as hell), I had a rum for dessert. Turned out to be Myers's in a double-shot glass that looked like it came out of a Clint Eastwood western.
It felt good. Enough surface area to get the aromas, heavy enough that I'd have to be doing something really stupid to spill it...
So I asked them if I could buy it.
They gave it to me.
I love it.
