this is what is known as a smoking bottle, its use is for burning incense without the open burning ember and the dust. i have a plain old wild turkey bottle i use. this one i actually wanted to keep until i realized it was a skyy vodka bottle i knew i would have more. i plan to get doc a bar set with a nice martini shaker, glass if possible, and i will etch it for him for his birthday. so vodka martinis will be much more plentiful. wow . . . it has been over two years since i had a vodka martini. it was at the double down. no, it had to be three years or more, there was only one person i drank them with.
