I hear you. Usually when I get a new bottle, it's open and sampled within 10 minutes of walking in the house. Just a little 3/4-to-1 oz. squirt to get an initial impression, deeper tasting and enjoying comes later. But I can't resist having a little taste if it's something I have never had before. That's part of what makes this such a fun adventure for me. Exceptions are if I bring home something really special that I want to save for awhile, or bottles for the bunker obviously.
