Thread Name: Whiskey in the Jar
Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar
Having lived in Ireland for most of my life, apart from the occasional year in other countries, the image that the phrase "Whiskey in the jar" calls to my mind is one of those stone whiskey-jars that were the norm before modern bottles. They were kind of fish-shaped buff-coloured stoneware bottles capped with corks.
