Luck of the Irish

Our Chief pointed out that we really are meeting the day after St. Patrick's Day. Last month, we had talked about going the Jim Beam Rye route this month as it's price is quite affordable and wouldn't be an enourmous, cliff like drop into the abyss of horrible whiskeys from the Lagavulin.

But I need to ask, should we be looking for a comparable Irish whiskey for the month? Is the Jim Beam set in everyone's heart? How bad could Jameson really be? Has the beauty of the sweet, sweet nectar that is Lagavulin drifter far enough from our short term memory? Thoughts? Jokes? Gassy expletives?

Might this replace Celtic Crossing?

While waiting for the Apple Next Big Thing event, I noticed Arstechnica was sponsored by Red Stag. Morbid curiosity led me to this review on While Darrin's bacon infusion experiment was in need of refining (Jeremiah Weed was just too sweet to mix with bacon). Anyone have thoughts on trying a classic Bourbon infused with black cherry? My guess is the review is correct in that it's medicinal cherry after taste will be too much but as a mix it might have legs. Could this turn stomachs as quickly as Celtic Crossing?

I open the floor to discussions, gagging sounds and ridicule.
