Appearance: Rich chestnut without water, but considerably lighter once diluted down to ~80 proof. Thickly coats the inside of the glass.
Nose: Extremely aromatic, this is the kind of whiskey you can smell from across the room. The nose is strongly nutty, with toasted coconut and lots of caramel. The addition of water opens up a number of delightful sweeter notes like milk chocolate, rum raisin, and blackberry, with a nice structured backbone of leather and salt.
Palate: Without water, I found this hot and quite closed on the palate, with indistinct nutty and oily notes poking through the intense alcohol. With water, dark caramel notes emerge alongside nut brittle, Brazil nut, and lime. The finish is dry and herbaceous, somewhere between cola and herbal tincture, with a lovely lingering warmth.

A wine list from Flask published in the early 1970s
Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.
We want to know their stories and how they produce bottles that fit into our unique collection. We make a point to keep our selection stocked with a wide variety, offering your classic Napa icons to your natural & organic wines.
