WHAT SHOULD I PUT IN MY FLASK ?

   When asked," what should I put in my flask ?", I say to fill it with what you like. If someone wants a more definate answer I say whisky. If they ask what kind, I say Alberta Premium Dark Horse rye whisky. Dark Horse is canadian whisky. Its 45.% abv, very dark, aromatic and tasty. This whisky is strong, smooth and flavourful when nipped on from a flask. And its amazing when you pour some into a cup of coke and ice! This whisky was made togo into a flask. Dark Horse is a premium whisky that costs under $30.00.

   You can't go wrong with a flask full of good whisky. Scotch, Irish, bourbon, rye, whatever you like. I suggest Dark Horse because it is good and it is what I like. But I strongly suggest that you only put straight liquor in your flask. If you need to dilute it, pour some in a cup.

   A flask can be a wonderful thing. But it's next to useless without the right liquor in it. So choose wisely and "Have A Good One!" 

WHAT SIZE FLASK IS BEST

   Liquor flasks are a nice accessory. They can also be an essential neccessity, depending on your lifestyle. Flasks come in many shapes and sizes, and are made from a wide variety of materials. If you are a traditionalist, you'll probably like a traditional styled flask. These are made of stainless steel and have a slightly concave shape. The size depends on how much liquor you need, and how easy it will be to carry. Most people don't want to be caught with a flask, so smaller is usually better. A 4.oz flask is easy to carry. Anything over 9.oz is getting harder to carry discretely. I carry a 7.5 oz traditional stainless steel flask. When filled with 90 proof (45.% abv) canadian whisky, this size works well for me. If I need more than that, I'll just take a full pint.

   Fill your flask with something good, preferably some kind of good whisky. If you want to be more discrete, a good vodka is better. But any strong liquor will do. Just pick something that you like.

   If you are taking your flask to a public place, be discrete, dress well, and keep quiet. You will be surprised at what you can get away with it you take this advice.

   So, pick the right flask, pick the right liquor, pick where to use your flask, and be discrete. If you do these things, your flask should serve you well.
