I like to bring a tall can of cold beer with me to the movies (sometimes 2 but rarely). It's better with popcorn than hard liquor imo. My wife smuggles her own popcorn in a large purse so she brings my beer in too.

The 10 yr old Balvenie, which is very good but not quite as good as the doublewood, is only a couple bucks more than JW Black. For less than black label, I prefer to buy 12 yr old Glenlivet. Single malts are invariable better than blends imo.

I wouldn't say invariably; it depends on what style you like. JW Black has a high Speyside/Isay content so I enjoy it more than Glenlivet, which never has appealed to me. Same with Glenfiddich, over which I'd take JW Red, or even Cutty Sark (horrors, I know). Regards, Huntsman

me, too - but I am not a huge fan of scotch, so I think that is part of my liking best scotches taht spent time in wood flavored with other spirits - bourbon/sherry or port.

I've long since decided that putting a good scotch in a flask is not the best of ideas. Now a good scotch whiskey on the other hand...

Occasionally, but often a bit too sweet for me. Sometimes I'll order it just because I think it's a cool-sounding drink.

yeah im another one for whom the concept of a flask is kinda weird. they make a cute 21st gift sure - i think I got 2 or 3 of them - no idea where any of them are now, and I dont think I ever put anything inside any of them. Vietnam is lawless, so if I want to walk around with a bottle I will, but generally I confine my drinking to the bars, and Im not so stingy that Im smuggling in my own stuff there. With the exception of when I lived in the US (which alcoholwise was like going back in time, since I went from being an 18 yr old bartender to an underage drinker in the space of one flight north) other places Ive lived I just never felt the desire to smuggle in drinks.

How do you clean your flask? I just got mine out, and the neck part that is all I can see is all grimey and rusty looking. Scares me about what is all teh way in there.

If the outside isn't leather or something like that, just put some dish soap inside and run ultra hot water inside and then drop the whole thing in a bowl or sink and cover it in hot water. Let it soak a while and brush the outside and cap; use a bottle brush if you have one small enough for the inside of the neck. Dump most of the water out and cover the opening, then shake it around, empty and rinse a lot.

Remember, alcohol kills germs. Other stuff besides alcohol can corrode your flask or get the inside sticky and host growth.

Here's another site's recommendation, sounds like it would work for any musty smell issues:

To get rid of that lingering smell
Pour in some tepid water
Add a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and a handful of uncooked rice.
Give it a good shake
Rinse well

I think about 75% of you are full of shit and do not carry a flask around with you. The rest of you...
