    Re: Sunday is St Patrick's Day

    Sounds fun unclebunk. I enjoy Paddy's and generally have a bottle around. May not be terribly complex, but it's a good, easy drinking Irish Whiskey.

    Any experience with this one?
    Greenore Single Grain 18 yr old Irish Whiskey (Ireland); 46% abv (Ireland)

    I am not sure how available it is....very pricey $135.
    Have yet to run across the 18yo but if I do I will probably buy one in spite of the cost. I like the 15yo better than the 8yo. The 8yo is very mild and unassuming. A good mixer and not bad on its own but not notable either.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Easy drinker about sums it up. We usually switch to Black Bush when the bottle of Paddy's is empty, but the initial toast is always Paddy's as tradition dictates. The way I see it, there's little point in busting out the heavy artillery on St. Patrick's Day when it is a "session" whiskey that is required, given all the stout that is also consumed throughout the day. Besides, from my experience anyway, you'd be hard pressed to find a home in all of County Cork (Ireland's largest county) that doesn't have a bottle of Paddy in the cupboard. So, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for us.

    St. Patrick’s Day controversy: Is corned beef and cabbage Irish?
    Many insist that it's their culinary heritage, but others are calling it blarney
    By Francis Lam


    "....First, let’s settle one thing: Ireland knew how to rock the corned beef. According to Irish food experts Colman Andrews and Darina Allen, corned beef was, in fact, a major export of Cork from the 17th century, shipping it all over Europe and as far as the sunny British West Indies, where they still love their corned beef in cans.

    Most of the Irish who came in massive waves to America during the Potato Famine in the late 1840s were from around Cork, so they probably knew corned beef well enough. But, as the historian Hasia Diner argues in “Hungering for America,” they may have been trying to forget altogether what they were and weren’t eating back in Ireland...."

    Re: Sunday is St Patrick's Day

    Well I was the Heathen in my Irish Catholic family as I always preferred Old Bushmills to either Jameson's or Tullamore Dew. "You drink that Protestant whiskey" was a common refrain. So yesterday I teed up a couple of tumblers of Old Bushmills while listening to the Saw Doctors as well as the Clancy Brothers, Four Men & A Dog, etc.. and raised a glass to my departed friends and relatives. Forgot to put on my Irish sweater, damn..
