    Re: "Family Size" bottles, and their built-in pourers

    I don't pour out of those unwieldy bottles, that 1.75 Barton is heavy, clumsy and doesn't have a handle. So I decant to something smaller which also takes care of the control issue.

    Bingo! Sure we're not related, S? I don't buy the family size to pour daily from, either. I keep the empty 750's of the same whiskey, and decant from the FS into the babies. Then I put the biggies out in Auxiliary Bunker B-2a(3). Less splashing into the funnel without the plastic thingee. And, faster.

    I leave 'em in. It's easier to pour.

    Re: "Family Size" bottles, and their built-in pourers

    I can't stand the "family sized" bottles either and always replace them into 750's with a screw top and a cheesy label from my label printer.The integrated pour spout never bothers me as it is only used briefly then the bottle is disposed of entirely.

    I leave the pourers in as the creators intended.

    I take em out because I like the built-in excuse of saying it's the bottle's fault when the old lady gives me a dirty look upon seeing 3 fingers of booze in a glass. Damn unwieldy things.

    Hell, I love leaving handles of Barton, AAA10yr and BT strewn about. It seems to make house guests a bit uneasy.

    I don't buy the family size. My kids are too young to drink whiskey.

    My five year old daughter once tried taking a gulp from my glass once... she was in tears. Then she was laughing.

    I leave'em in because it hasn't occurred to me to take them out. I will assume I get some benefit from leaving them in and continue to be lazy
