Was at the Navy-Notre Dame game this weekend with some brandy in my flask.

A decent Scotch but nothing too expensive (i actually got the current bottle for free). Normally I take it with me on Amtrak or to parties with my gf since she likes scotch as well.

Do you guys actually like the taste of straight alcohol? Everytime I try to taste it it makes me wanna puke, regardless of how good the alcohol is. I like the idea of having a flask though, very classy.

^^Flask in one hand, beer in the other: problem solved.

Not straight alcohol, but 80 proof. Edit: I see you're a college kid. I didn't like booze for a while.

Straight alcohol (i.e. Everclear) is usually used in some sort of concotion that you would likely find at a high school party Now a straight, small batch bourbon from KY (Knobb Creek, Woodford Reserve, Bookers, Bakers, etc.), or a nice single malt scotch (Talisker comes to mind) warms the body and soul like few other drinks.

Blended scotch. I'm going to start introducing it to the office, to get away from the usual cans of heineken in my boss's mini-fridge (sshhh)

I went through the same thing early on in my drinking career - just keep forging ahead! My "gateway" drink was bourbon (Maker's at that point) on the rocks. If you keep having a drink everyone once in a while you will get to a point where the alcohol burn essentially disappears, and you are free just to enjoy the flavor itself.

I got my Dalvey flask last week and it is lovely. I just filled it with some Cragganmore to take on a little hike with the wife and kid.

Varies, almost always a bourbon of some kind. My "go-to" bourbon is Wild Turkey 101 or Rare Breed, as they are high-flavor, high-proof, and give a good alcohol / weight ratio, as well as standing up well flavour-wise to living in a stainless steel flask. I don't usually put expensive/nice whiskey in a flask, unless I know I'm going to be able to pour it out into proper glassware.
