    I need a flask. I think everydaybeer gave me a Jack Daniels one in the Christmas Exchange:) But I think I need a bigger one. Without a brand name on it:)

    I got a nice set from the kids: Leather 3x4x6 box with stainless tongs, stirrer, 2 collapsible cups, and 2 tube flasks. Great for the bag, but not the hip.

    Nice. But I don't mix drinks(yet:p)
    I just need a small flask to carry, though, probably still in bag, unless I'm wearing a jacket.

    I really like the flask that Stanley makes, but it's not the most pocket-able.

    I was born here, made parole when I was ten, then had to move back twenty years ago when I got divorced. Loooong story. Again hoping to go over the wall one of these days, if the housing and job markets cooperate...

    Wow, just realized, if I end up back here again, I'll be a "three striker." :frantic:

    I know, right? :D

    Knob Creek has a lot of rye in the mashbill. I'm a big fan of straight rye whiskey, I like the spiciness of it. If you like Knob Creek but want something with a tad more attitude, you might want to try Bulleit bourbon, it's even more rye-heavy than Knob Creek.

    Full disclosure: I was born in NJ and lived the first 14 years of my life there. We were liberated in 1982 when my dad got a job in Florida. I've been back to NJ exactly twice in 31 years and have no desire to ever return.

    My boss says the same thing about Basil Hayden's. That's going to be my next stop on this tour of bourbons you people have started me on.

    Elmer T. Lee Bourbon...90 proof. Not bad, but I don't like it nearly as much as Basil Hayden's. Its not even close. But it'll do. That Basil Hayden's will be for special occasions;)
