    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.

    Re: Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    Sometimes I rinse, sometimes I don't. I don't really have a rule of thumb.
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    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.

    And repeat, and repeat.

    a quick rinse, a swirl, then dump it and get on with the evening.

    I'm using the same glass. No rinse just drink, pour more, repeat

    I rinse and drink the water usually. I don't drink enough water throughout the day and try to make up for it that way.

    Careful shaking the glass over the sink when removing excess water. I've seen a glass or two break in that process.

    Very pleased that someone here finally recognized the origin of my nickname.
