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.
We like to think of our whiskey and spirit section as more of a library where the rarest of bottles can be found.
We look forward to helping you find your next favorite bottle!
Dark honey with dried tangerine peel and some roasted malt. The fruit gets richer with some deep apricot notes along with apricot jam and marmalade. There’s also quite a lot of polished wood (sandalwood) and some mango as well. After a bit the wood gets a little dusty. With even more time there’s some clove and maybe a hint of cinnamon too; definitely more creamy. A drop or two of water brings out the malt and some very mild notes of (powdered) ginger; there’s also more lime now but it’s still all wonderfully integrated.
Not quite as rich on the palate–or at least it’s much brighter here: the fruit and the wood. Speaking of the wood, there’s a slight tannic bite on the palate but it works well with the fruit. With the second sip there’s more of the mango and it’s integrated very nicely with the wood. Some mocha/dark chocolate notes emerge too with time. On subsequent sips the citrus intensifies and there’s more sweetness now too. Water plays up the lime on the palate too, along with the sweetness, but also brings out some more bitter wood as a fine counterpoint.
Long. The fruit gets darker and richer again and the malt emerges late. The wood hangs around. Very well integrated finish. Water keeps the lime going on the finish as well but also makes the wood dustier and a little off balance.
