    Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    If you are drinking two or more different bourbons over the course of one sitting, do you:

    1) Use a fresh glass for each different bourbon

    2) Use the same glass but rinse it out each time you switch brands

    3) Just use the same glass without rinsing

    I'm wondering if my OCD tendencies are over-complicating the process of enjoying my bourbon. I've been rinsing the glass when I switch brands.

    I am OCD in more than a few ways and I always rinse my glass with bottled water and wipe dry in between pours.

    Sometimes rinse and some times not. Use different glasses if doing tastings

    Usually just a quick rinse between pours for me.

    I go with the stack of red solo cups. Quick, easy, cheap, and dishwasher safe.

    First, the thought of drinking bourbon from a red solo cup makes me feel uneasy, like watching somebody burn a national flag.

    Second, I usually don't switch horses mid-stream, but for tastings I rinse between each whiskey only because I don't have enough glassware to give everyone 5 glasses.

    I don't really use solo cups. I might have to start if I keep breaking Glencairns at the same rate I/we have been recently.

    Ditto that, Alan. After all .. all that goes into that glass is bourbon! It's on my desk in the garage where I have my tv, computer, and about a half-dozen open bottles to reach for. At the end of the evening I'll put a napkin in it .. and only rince and shine every few days or so.
