    Re: How many of you....?

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Re: How many of you....?

    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.

    Re: How many of you....?

    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.

    Re: How many of you....?

    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.
