Hey all. My first post and I have an interesting question.

I will be making a trip in about two weeks and I am wondering about any thoughts on what is a good whisky to have in a flask? With the sight and nose out of the question it really comes down to mouth feel, taste and finish. I have around 250 malts in my collection right now, so I am open to any option. I am leaning to the Islay's, Ardbeg, Laphroaig.

Well, if you insist on Scotch, then I think you're right -- the island malts are the way to go.
Personally, I'd try a straight rye (not bourbon): Rittenhouse, Wild Turkey, Van Winkle (if you can find it), Classic Cask -- and enough flavor to bounce off any meddling the metal does.

Hey Tim. Thanks for the additional notes. I didn't catch your notes until after my trip. I did have a Van Winkle I could have used too. I went with two Islay's.

Lagavulin 16y - great mouth feel (oily) and had some of the ocean notes in the finish

Bowmore 17y - Not my favorite Bowmore, but the Peat came on strong in the mouth and woke up my throat for a long finish.

It was an interesting experience, being that I am so use to using a nosing glass for just about all of my malt drinking. My flask got a lot of use. I took it everywhere and filled it many times.
