    Re: Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    If drinking two or more bourbons, each gets its own Glencairn because they will get sampled alternatly rather consecutively. Plus a glass with spring water to rinse the mouth and add a drop to the bourbon. Plus rocks glasses. Recently had three vintages of EWSB. My side table got a little crowded.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Re: Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    I always use a fresh glass for each different bourbon. It's kind of a pain to clean up afterwards, but I like comparing the empty glasses the next day as well.

    Re: Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    I rinse with a tiny bit of the next bourbon. I just don't like cleaning that many glasses, water reduces the proof and alters flavor and I want to add it when I want to add it, and absolutely nothing does as good of a job cleaning fresh whiskey out of a glass, than more whiskey.

    Nope. I just pour another in the same glass. I've drank Bourbon, Scotch and Irish in the same evening out of the same glass. No big deal.

    No reason for me to rinse. I suck every last drop out of the glass before a repour!

    I figure if the proof is high enough it'll burn off any remnants of the previous drink. Can't be bothered to wander upstairs and grab another glass. Or it might be that my taste buds aren't sophisticated enough to notice the difference!

    A blend of rise and no rinse depending on how late in the night it's gotten.
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    No need to rinse anything if you drink it straight from the bottle!

    I usually rinse and reuse my glass, and I almost never have two pours of the same whiskey in an evening.
