    only when it is georgia moon, or a white dog sample in a fruit jar. Something about drinking out of a fruit jar makes it taste better.

    Re: Do you ever....

    Yes, but as a "sip" not a "slug"... I'll take a small sip off of a bottle or two if I'm trying to figure out what will taste right, or after having a glass of something and wanting to finish with a different flavor.

    Addendum: I don't do this with bottles that I'd use for serving anyone else.

    Ha, no, can't think of a time when I've ever taken a swig from a bottle, but I definitely smell my bourbons all the time. Love that "pop" of the cork, and mmmm, that smell...

    Do you ever....

    It's the first thing I do when I get home from work. Last thing I do before bed. And first thing I do when I get up in the morning. After I brush my teeth, of course.

    No. Absolutely not. There must be something wrong with you. The meetings you speak of occur in the chat room if you ever want to talk about it.

    I might have done that a few times.

    I've never taken a slug from a bottle - I have a personal distaste of drinking from a bottle others might want a pour from - but I do open and nose several bottles occasionally. Having said that, if I have a bottle I am definately NOT going to be sharing with anyone, who cares if I drink from it
