    I take it you use a copper funnel?

    If I'm drinking from a handle I'll leave the pourer in. If the bottle's being used for some sort of alchemy (e.g. SB.com Blend ™) I'll take it out.

    Same here. I either use a decanter or an empty 5th of the same juice. The bigger problem for me is storage space. I have room in the basement bar cabinet for FS but I still do most of my drinking upstairs, and most of my open bottles are up there. Decanting it saves me a trip or several.

    I leave the pourer in because I've never felt the need to pry it out.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

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

    I sometimes wonder why I read some threads.

    It would never occur to me to take the plastic thing out, I would never have had a thought that it could affect the taste.

    As for the family size bottles, I love them. There is more whiskey and it is usually discounted over the price per pour of the 750. I wish everything could be gotten like this. I would love to see a 4RSmB family size, and some of the others like a WLW in a family size would be just awesome.

    Best regards, Tony

    I buy family sized if I have a choice, well, not the Elijah Craig 1.75, that big mouth bugger will dribble whisky down both sides of your chin.
