    I use different colored CR bags to protect my mutes in their case. Purple for Straight Mute, Tan for Cup Mute (the Reserve bottle is taller and the bag is wedge shaped), Black for Bucket Mute, Grey for Harmon (I forget this whiskey but it was GOOD).

    All of these - standard, Black, Reserve, and um....the other one....were very good, in the ways Patrick describes, which I think of as somewhere between "Sippin' Whiskey" and "Too Much Whiskey". TMW is for times when you need just exactly that. Another way to look at it is that CR is good enough to serve without embarrassment to company that isn't particularly special, and cheap enough that you don't feel bad serving it to them, and functional enough so that you can endure the ordeal if you don't like them but are forced to be polite in the interests of domestic tranquility (ie. your wife's girlfriend's husband, who has the personality of a wet dishrag but you have to pretend to tollerate).

    I stay away from the "flavored" whiskeys, such as Apple, Maple, and whatever else, although those would presumably have additional colors that would help with my OCD*. I was gifted the Maple once, and it was truly dreadful. I expect even less from the Apple. I regifted the Maple, already opened, to someone for whom I felt no fondness. This is known as a "win-win".

    * "Help" being defined as "reinforce and amplify".

    Of course, you can buy drawstring felt bags on ebay if you're not stuck on the Crown Royal vibe. You can even get them in purple, if you want your trumpet stand to look authentic from a distance...

    It has to fit your bell...can't think of any other "size" than that.

    'Hunting buddy provides me with all the Crown bags I could ever possibly need. I worry terribly about him.

    Blanton's comes in a nice brown bag. I like the different colors for different mutes system.

    I use one over my bell occasionally in church when accompanying a choir piece, but I stragegically place the logo out of sight...;-)
