    Re: Flasks

    I have a larger plastic REI version, some smaller stainless steel ones and also use smaller recycled glass bottles. All depends on the use/function.

    Went to a concert recently, decided to take a nip with me, pulled a flask out of the cupboard. It was half full, but I don't know exactly what was in it (undoubtedly nothing top shelf). Not being too picky, I just topped it off with a 50/50 WSR/Bulleit blend I had experimented with. Later, when sampling, I thought it was quite tasty. An initial burn followed by a creamy deliciousness. I wish I could replicate it in a new blend, but I have no idea what the third ingredient may be.

    I use a military grade flask made from a collaboration between Oakley and the Macallan. It's the only one I found that can handle the rigors of my lifestyle.

    Figured you were kidding but that is a ridiculous price for a flask!

    Re: Flasks

    Question to Smokinjoe:
    What the hell is 'Serendipity'? Who makes it? (I looked it up on several sites and nobody has such a brand listed.)
    Is it a Wheater? a Rye-Bourbon? or a Straight Rye?

    Re: Flasks

    I believe he was referring to the serendipity (a happy accident) of my creation of a delicious blend, one I unfortunately do not know how to re-create. You know, when you stumble onto some pleasant surprise, it is a serendipitous event. Although I kind of like "Serendipity" for the name of a bourbon. Better than "Forgiven" or "B&E". New, from Santana Distilleries, Serendipity. A nice nose, strong caramel mid-palate, yielding to a slight cinnamon burn. A long finish. A solid bargain at $8 a flask.
