Reservoir Pontarlier Glass
Incredible value - unique handblown replicas of the most famous of all absinthe glasses, the so called "Pontarlier" glass, so named because of it's appearance in Charles Maire's famous painting:
These newly improved Pontarlier replicas are heavier and finer quality than every before, and are made by craftsmen working in an age-old tradition, to mimic the antique originals as closely as possible. Their large reservoirs are perfectly calibrated for a generous 30ml dose.

Allows for an accurate ratio of Absinthe to water. The glass is high quality, and thick enough to be a sturdy glass. The only thing I don't like is after the water is poured over the sugar, and you try to mix the sugar with the cold water, the sugar has a tendency to sink into the bulb and not mix well. I have to stir it a lot to get the sugar mixed well. So that's a design issue. But the piece is well made.

If you're going to drink absinthe, you'll need these to do it properly.
