It's normal if the flask is made of inexpensive metal. My recommendation is that you either use a more costly metal flask you simply drink faster!

Tips for Drinking Whiskey
Whiskey is a wonderful and rich spririt which is much loved by men and women all over the world.
If you're new to whiskey drinking, here are some tips to help you get started.
1. Be selective with the kind of whiskey you drink. This is one of those things where you usually can't get away with buying a cheap brand.
2. Drink out of a good glass - preferably a whiskey tumbler. It sounds crazy but the type of glass you drink from will affect the taste of the whiskey.
3. If you find whiskey too intense, try adding water or ice to dilute it a little.
4. Whiskey cocktails are really tasty. So if you find whiskey by itself too strong - try it in a cocktail.

My dog will eat our food but will not eat his , he is being given wainrights he just wants our food

A dog can go without food for a few days and then will eat when it is hungry. Just stop giving your dog your food and at its normal feeding time give it a bowl of its food. If it does not eat it, take the food away. Then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog. If it has not eaten it within ten minutes take it away and then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog again. By now the dog should be happy to eat what it is given.

I have a thermos 1 liter flask. I was washing it the other day. The glass part was our of the flask and a rubber seal came off but I didn't see where the seal came from. Please can you tell me where do I...

There is a rubber ring on the bottom of the glass and it holds the glass flask in place in the metal body.I wonder if this is what you describe as a seal.When you put the glass back in its body it should push up to a ring seal at the top.If that is there then I am sure it's the shock ring at the bottom.

putting it into a vaccum sealed thermos flask. The vaccume keeps the

Should I drink my whiskey with water/ice?

There are both positive and negative effects to the whiskey by adding either water or ice.

Adding nothing - many whisky drinkers are adamant that adding anything to your whiskey takes away from the natural form of the product, damaging its unique characteristics.

Adding water - by adding a few drops of water to a glass of whiskey, you can open up subtle flavors within the whiskey that if you had drunk neat, you may have never experienced.

Adding ice - I do not recommend adding ice to your whisky. Ice will cause the temperature of the whisky to drop rapidly causing the taste to become dull.

Metalic taste in cold water and ice cubes from refrigerator

I had a similar problem and I was able to get rid of it by replacing the copper lines that go to the refrigerator with plastic ones. It didn't make any sense to me since the pipes are all copper, but the taste is gone and hasn't come back.

Strong metal taste, how do I get rid of it. Coffee tastes terrible with very strong metal taste. I have boiled kettle about 8 times, but am unable to get rid of bad taste.

Professional chefs face this problem many times over with their stainless steel wares. Fill the coffee pot with water. Add a tbs of bleach. Let set for 2 hours. See if that helps. If it doesn't, please let me know.

Terrible taste that came from water?...

Do you have a water softener? It's possible the softener was in soak when you used the water dispenser. That would explain the "salty" (hi sodium) water taste and thena retrun to normal later.

Also, if you get your water from a muncipal well, they may have been experiencing a problem at the time with higher than normal sodium content.
