Irish Whiskey and Irish People....

Post by minidazzler » Mon Aug 26, 2013 6:22 pm

So, I just have three nice and simple questions, at least I think they're simple....

We all know Jameson is your favourite whiskey, which would indicate that Irish whiskey is preferred to Single Malts of Scotland..... but have you tried any other Irish Whiskies either in or outside of the Jameson branding?

And Secondly, is Cahir now a full time Soul, or will he be leaving again once your back is better?

Is Derry gonna kill him having to play two sets? :D

Have a lovely day.
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

Cahir is Frank's guitar tech & generally his on tour amusement so he'll always be around the band when Frank gets better anyway.

The day Frank came & played for me!

Apart from those times he goes off with his own band. Like the upcoming European tour.

History tells us that if you join frank's backing band, even for a short while, any ideas you might harbour about keeping your own band going are pure fantasy. You might manage it for a bit, but ultimately, you've had it. Cahir will be a full-time Soul soon enough. :)

Irish whisky, sure I've tried some, but I can't say I have the most developed palette for it, I just enjoy Jameson. Cahir is probably not going to be fulltime in the band, no. I like playing guitar.
Shows? All of em.

If it ever became necessity (hopefully it never will) would you make him permanent?
I'm no good at thinking of something funny enough for these things.

I'm struggling to envisage this scenario.

Perhaps if the Souls staged a revolt, recruited Cahir to their ranks, then Matt took over lead vocals and they overthrew frank and forced him into exile. But frank rules with an iron fist - it would simply never be allowed to happen. The slightest dissent is crushed, the dissenter erased from the history books and condemned to be an unperson. It is not that they would no longer exist - they would never have existed.

And this is why Chris's music erased itself from my hard drive.

For any Whisky drinkers out there - I strongly recommend what i was bought for my Birthday.

15 year old Ben Nevis which came from a one off cask - it is amazing.
The moment the glass comes up to your mouth - you smell and feel the 'fumes' - then as you drink it your whole neck and throat briefly feel like they are on fire and it leaves the most mellow and smooth after taste ...

Also - Whisky Rocks! My brother got me some so you can cool down the Whisky but not dilute it with ice (which becomes water).
06 06.3 08.8
07 04.4 11.5 17.5 08.6 10.11
08 28.3 21.04 13.6 06.7 06.9
09 11.1 06.2 21.4 10.10 29.10
10 23.3 16.7 12.12
11 12.2 12.5 30.5 27.11
12 13.4 28.11 28.12x2
13 10.1 24.6 11.7 12.7
14 12.2 13.2 14.9 17.12
15 29.1 02.2 13.8 7.11

Can't say I've ever tried Ben Nevis, master of malt have got the 16 year old available to sample though so I'll give that a try. If you like your whisky smoky ardbeg uigeadail is my favourite.

I got hooked on Jamesons years back, but on a holiday to Scotland I fell for single malts, I love Ben Nevis! Isle of Jura is also delicious. I really want to try some Irish whisky though. Got told I can't drink it anymore by Dr, but might risk a small one!!!

What do people think of Jameson and ginger? I prefer it to straight Jameson.
