How many of you take a pull straight from the bottle occasionally? I must admit that I do. Every once in a while I just don't feel like a full or regular pour of any kind. I'll pick a bottle, and take a small tug just to get a small taste and wet my whistle. I hesitated a little in starting this thread because I don't want to be offensive or gross. I just figure I can't be the only one out here that does this. A little help from the crowd please. Joe

PS. I only do this with bottles that only have a little left, or that only I will ever drink from.

I believe this is the whole reason they make 200ml bottles...perfect for sporting events...

In my youth I did. But I don't feel it is right to slobber all over the mouth of a bottle I may offer someone a drink from at a later date.

I have a saying: Drinking whiskey from the bottle is a good way to ship a tooth.

Obviously, you're not going to chip a tooth if you are sober. But I know someone who chipped one of his front teeth while quite drunk. No, it wasn't me.

Joe, I definitely do that occasionally. Alcohol kills the germs and I don't have any whiskey drinking friends anyway. Only some dudes I met on the internet. :grin:

I do this, usually just with cheaper bottles though. I don't let people drink straight from the bottle if it's my bottle though. We had a friend of the family over who drinks a lot and they'd take a slam out of my WT101 bottle every time they walked past it if no one was looking. I don't care about the bourbon they drank at all, they were a guest (offered to pay for it before I noticed them drinking it but I refused), but the backwash/floaters they left in the remainder of the bottle looked gross and I wound up throwing it out; no bottle I've ever drank from has ever looked anything close to this bottle. Later, at dinner, two thirds of the bottle later (all them), they had a really horrible coughing fit and sounded like they were going to throw up, being the only only who knew that they'd been drinking and how much all I could picture was a geyser of WT101 erupting from their mouth so I slowly distanced myself from them at the table... lol

Never felt the need. Scared of chipping a tooth.

Besides there is the whole backwash thing - the very thing that makes the last 10% of a bottle of beer so unappealing.

I'll admit it...Yeah, I pound the last finger or two from WT bottles that are nearly empty.

You mean we are supposed to drink this stuff out of glasses?

I do it once in awhile, usually if I want to taste something and there are no glasses around or the last little bit in the bottle.

J/K, not a habit of mine.

Not yet.... I either find the time to enjoy a pour or pass ... never had the urge for just a swig...

Just when my in-laws are over. A hidden bottle in the bathroom cabinet works great.

Oh yeah and on a few camping trips. Hasn't anyone ever thrown the cap of a fifth in the fire and you pass the bottle till it's gone?

If there is not enough for a regular pour left in the bottle, I usually just down it from the bottle. Did it last night actually.....

I used to do that back in my college days, but the look and smell of the bourbon in the glass is a great part of enjoying it too, so I usually have mine in a glencairn glass.

Oh yea... I have tossed some lids... never thought to pass the bottle though :slappin:

Sometimes if I can't sleep at night, I'll go downstairs to take a nip. I don't put it in a glass.

I only do it with bottles that I'm sure no one else will ever get a drink out of, usually ones that I feel are inferior and that I want to finished off asap.

1.75's are great for the job. You remove the plastic pourer and they have that handle that is perfect for tippin'.

yeah, did that on Super Bowl Sunday. I had a little WT101 to kill and was trying to get a chuckle out of the wife.

Civilized has nothing to do with it. Inebriated has everything to do with it.

This is a trick question right? If you are worried about chipping a tooth, use a sippie cup.:slappin:

Yes, but if I use a glass, at least it'll be civilized inebriation.

smokinjoe

Yes, I do. I'll finish off a last pour Belushi style. :cool:

It's context sensitive. If I'm at home and just taking my time with the bourbon, I'll pour it into something else. If I'm at a party, I usually bring my own supply and then I'm much more inclined to drink straight from the bottle.

I did it when I first started trying a lot of whiskies, wanting to sample many different tastes in small amounts. I noticed right away that much of the taste is lost if you can't smell it as well, so I don't do it any more.

As far as backwash...proper sipping technique allows fluid to flow from the bottle into the mouth, and not the reverse direction. So if you're having trouble with this, you might want to rethink your technique, or stick to a glass.

I've never taken a slug straight from the bottle but now that you've got me thinking about it...I may knock off the last of a bottle of WT101 Clint Eastwood-style and wipe my mouth on my sleeve when I'm done. Hell, I might even spit on the floor just to keep the spaghetti western thing going. :lol:

Ok, no trades with you! Haaa

Wiki

"Ethanol is used in medical wipes and in most common antibacterial hand sanitizer gels at a concentration of about 62% (percentage by volume, not weight) as an antiseptic."

So, the standard whiskey % may be a little light for the purpose....but probably has some effect.

http://www.wisegeek.com/why-is-alcohol-a-good-antiseptic.htm

"Intriguingly, 70% alcohol is a more effective antiseptic than 100% alcohol"

I'm with Dawn and Jono, and a couple others.

Some of you guys make me look civilized. And in most ways I'm a pretty crude individual. Gothbat's story about his guests drinking from a bottle of WT 101 is the standout post (so far) in this thread. That was some pretty gross imagery.

This thread reminds me of the old Henny Youngman line: "My mother is ninety years old and doesn't need glasses.... she drinks straight from the bottle." (rim shot):lol:

I would never admit to drinking straight from the bottle, but Stoopsie would. :cool:
