    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.

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

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

    Nick Danger LOL....I would do whatever Nancy tells you....

    I never rinse, I love the smell of a glass the next day, just like a campfire.

    Usually option 3. Sometimes option 2, but I always drink the water I rinse with. Gotta stay hydrated somehow.

    I rarely drink from more than one bottle at a time.
