IRISH WHISKEY St. Paddy���s Day Parade by Richard Carleton Hacker W ith all due respect to Kermit the Frog, it is easy being green, especially on St. Patrick���s Day, or as the Irish call it, l�� Fh��ile P��draig, ���the Festival of Patrick,��� which falls on March 17 and is celebrated���in true Irish fashion���with food and drink. This year, there���s a richer supply than ever of Irish whiskies to enliven the patron saint���s day, ranging from cocktail-ready staples to dapper drams best served over ice. And don���t forget special limited releases made for sipping neat. From lords to leprechauns and those in-between, this fastgrowing category has a spirit to move any whiskey lover. The 180-year-old pot still at the Kilbeggan Distillery re���ects the long history of whiskey in Ireland. CREDIT: 90 / the tasting panel / march 2013
