    Re: Flask advice - cane

    I was working on a project for Southern Comfort at the time, a catalog of merchandise that we thought represented the brand image. Some of it had the SC logo on it, some did not. The cane, which does have an SC logo, was one of the items. I don't know where we sourced it. The whole project goes back 20 years.

    Re: Flask advice - cane

    If you google for
    flask cane

    then a the first few hits have things that sound a lot like
    what you're describing. Pretty cool! One day, when I'm an
    old man, I'll get me one of them things.

    There's an age progression:
    middle age: no longer looks silly with a pipe
    early old age: no longer looks silly with a fedora
    old age: no longer looks silly with a cane

    Hey, I just bought this one since it's copper.

    I'm hoping that the copper will allow me to store Bourbon as long as I want.

    Re: Flask advice

    I'm sending the flask back. It's stainless steel on the inside which is good, but the instructions say you can't keep liquor in it for more then 3 days. Don't like that one bit.

    Anyone know if the 3 day limit is for all SS flasks?

    Re: Flask advice

    Surely if bourbon can be stored in stainless for years, it can last more than 3 days in a flask. It is likely a disclaimer because of either the welds, the screw top, or some other strange vestige of the manufacturing process. I've had whisky in SS flasks for alot longer than three days with no problem. For hiking, though, I'm wondering why you just don't use a good plastic like Nalgene.

    Re: Flask advice

    I've read disclaimers like this before and the ones I've read have claimed that it is not so much the flask tainting the liquor but the other way around. I would think they were of the mind that this was for people who use the flask for different spirits at different times. I can imagine the horror of taking a swig of my favorite bourbon and have it tainted with vodka flavor.

    My favorite flask is a round one with no seams or welds other than those at the mouth. I have kept whiskey in it for over two weeks and it has not tainted the taste at all.

    But like you, I would think a cheap plastic flask would be just the thing for a hike as it is light and can take a little punishment barring being punctured. The ones I have seen are usually pint sized too, meaning you don't run out in mid hike too.
