    PS. I only do this with bottles that only have a little left, or that only I will ever drink from.
    I'll admit it...Yeah, I pound the last finger or two from WT bottles that are nearly empty.

    Re: How many of you....?

    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.

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

    Re: How many of you....?

    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.
