    Got a Flask?




    I have this cool JD hip-shaped flask that I sometimes take to sporting events and other occasions. Fits great in the inside pocket of my jacket, and it's a kind of metal that doesn't set off metal detectors. It's a great way to take a little something special to drink, when I know the place I'm going won't have what I want.

    Do you guys have a flask? If so, tell us a little bit about what it looks like, where you got it, how much it cost, how long you've had it, and what you use it for.

    I was using a 375ml bottle of Knob Creek for a while. It fits nicely into a back pocket. And--always a bonus--it was included with the price of the whiskey!

    That looks like a pretty sweet setup. I hope you're on Santa's A-list.

    I'm with Tommy.
    I use an empty WT 375. Its perfect. I won't mind having it confiscated, I can see how much is in it, it doesn't tarnish the flavor of the bourbon and the price was right.
    As a follow up.
    Where do you hide your flask?
    I carry mine like an ankle holster in my sock.

    Re: Got a Flask?

    Great question. I'm looking forward to hearing other people's answers.

    Like I said above, I carry my own flask in the inside pocket of my jacket. If I'm wearing my heavy leather jacket, it's unnoticeable.

    Re: Got a Flask?

    Of course I do. It was given to me by my boss when I left for Alaska.It now sports a dent it got sometime in the evening of my going away party.I would say more about that but things are a little fuzzy, some wonderful friends of mine would not stop buying me Blanton's.It's rough being me sometimes.

    If you can find it Jim Beam Black is offering a very nice flask in its holiday gift pack this year. I've asked Jo to get me one for Christmas. As with all gift packs you pay for the spirits and the gift is basically free.

    I know longer use it, but for about a year I used a Beam half pint bottle...same reasons...cheap, easy to see contents, non-metallic taste. The half-pint is small enough to fit easily anywhere but with 8oz has enough to share. I have been looking for a quality flask for a while...I saw the round ones that come from Britain the other day and they looked nice...hmmm ?
