    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.

    Fresh Glass for Each Bourbon?

    Definitely a rinser, except for pours from the same bottle.

    #3 for me, same glass, no rinse, unless at a tasting. Then it's same glass, with a rinse and a swish and swallow to clear the palate.

    Rinse and dry between different bottles.

    Generally #3 for me. I have been known to rinse, and re-pour, but would be the exception, not the rule.

    I saw your name, and at the last possible second stopped on a dime.

    Unfortunately the dime was in Mr. Rococo's pocket.

    I've done all three, but I too love the smell of the empty glass the following day or later in the day.

    Typically 3 unless whatever I poured didn't taste right for any reason. I try to rinse at the end of the night though, as I learned the hard way that the "leftover" can go really bad fairly quickly (and the smell was enough to throw my palate off for a week).
