how do you sip bourbons?

What is the right way to sip boubon, How much do you take in and where and how long do you hold it in your mouth to get all the characteristics out of bourbon?

I am new to whiskey strait and want to get a few of the better types out there and try them strait. The one thing I am learning is there is a bit of burn on back of mouth when sipping. This is new to me for my whiskey has always been in the form of a old fashion sweet. Is the burn part of the tasting or is that just something that the best bourbons dont have as mush. Thanks for your help fro m a whiskey newbe.
