Love the Flask

So as we were talking about the barn coat, the subject moved to drinking; real surprise for me! I love my flask (or should I say FLASKS). I have quite a few. From a very nice small one that can fit into you jeans pocket, it is hand made from England with leather outside of it, to a large monogramed flask (see picture above). To me the flask is a classic part of any man's accessories. And a perfect gift for husbands who enjoy having a little nip while walking through the woods or watching that college football game. My first flask use was during ski trips. After a morning of crazy skiing we would start to "enjoy" the day by warming up with a hit of the flask! Nothing is better than that.

The only question is what to put into the flask? I usually go for scotch or cognac. But in my opinion anything goes. So, dust off that old flask and fill it up with your favourite spirit and enjoy the fall weather...and if you don't have one drop the hint to the special lady in your life; she can even have the gift engraved.

My new fave (close 2nd to Oban) is Jameson Irish - aged, natch!

My family owns a spirit store here in Alabama. We sell a ton of flasks, especially this time of year. I don't own one, but I do own a barn coat.

My boyfriend is a New Zealander and that is where I am at the moment. Here in "God's Own" the 21st birthday is a huge huge event, I've never seen anything quite like it. Regardless of the fact that 18 is the drinking here, one of the standard gifts a boy (man?) will recieve is a flask. Usually he will have 2 or 3 by the nights end.
I like your blog, I found it through someone elses, I think maybe monogrammed mama's?
