    Travel Flask

    I make several overnight business trips a year. Often staying at budget hotels that don't have resturants or bars attached. I'd like to take enough whiskey along so I could have a drink at the end of the day. I've seen plastic flasks at area liquor stores but have doubts about what they would do to the taste of finer whiskeys. Does anyone have experience with these? What about metal flasks?

    I can't say about the plastic , but I given to think that getting them rinsed out ( Dishwashing soap) is the problem . the metal ones should not affect it in any way.

    Re: Travel Flask

    I have an old pewter flask from Orvis with a troutfishing scene engraved on it. The problem is that the mouth is too small - hard to fill and wash - but it doesn't affect the whiskey's taste at all. The trick in rinsing is to slosh around a little of whatever you're going to fill it with after rinsing, then dump out the flask contents. Then fill it. That also works with glass 2 oz. sample bottles.

    Re: Travel Flask

    I have a glass, leather covered hip flask that belonged to grandfather. It is the perfect size (like some of the metal ones mentioned above) rather than a little too big. On one side it says "Smile O'Meter" and has a measuring opening in the leather so you can see how much you've drank. The other side says "Saturday Evening Post" and has a man leaning against a lamp post holding a flask in his hand.

    You know Ralph that's why you just can' beat a good ol' 'jerry can'. When I was fighting the 'Cold War' in what was then known as 'West Germany' I had a BIG buxom blonde BOMBSHELL of a German girlfriend. We drank Jim Beam bourbon and had the most awesome sex. There is nothing better than a 19 year old German girl and a 20 year old American boy. Sparks for Freedom. The world is now a better place. Soooo glad I could help.

    So that's why you like jeeps, Linn! Gotta have something that looks kosher with jerry cans slung all over it. Can't think of a better way to break those leaf springs than in generating "sparks for freedom"!

    Re:Jrry Cans

    On behalf of all freedom loving Americans everywhere , Thank you Linn for your tireless efforts advancing the American way of life, and the hardships you endured to defeat our enemy. Only you know the hardships you faced , and the sacrifice to perservere in battle. Thank God you were able to find an ally in the Buxom German Blonde, and that the supply line from JimBeam was never severed!

    Re:Jerry Cans & Blondes

    Thanks Bobby! At that time the U.S. Army ran on deisel fuel; Marlboros, and Beam. As a Corporal I was making a whopping $310 a month. Smokes were 35 cents a pack and I bought Beam by the half gallon at either nine or ten dollars a jug.I don't rightly remember, but I think regular 'white label' Beam was 90 proof.
