It is wonderful stuff. As someone mentined, there is better, but Jamieson is still great. I would buy it, (actually maybe probably a few bottles), and enjoy it.

I usually buy Paddy if I can find it - but Jamieson is a good 2nd choice and I usually have a bottle of one or the other in the cabinet at all times.

I went to Ireland about 12 years ago with my ex-husband and I bought 2 bottles of Jameson back. Well, soon after the trip he & I separated and started divorce proceedings. Needless to say, the Jameson did NOT last very long - good medicne when you need it, if you know what I'm saying.

I still get a Jameson when we go out to a few of the Irish pubs in our area.

I don't regard Jamieson as anything special. You can buy it in any liquor store.

Sort of the equivalent of Makers Mark or Dewars.

We do drink a lot of Jamieson, though. Often with ginger ale.

We spend $$ on good bourbon though.

You are right! That is what the ad said when it was advertising this Jamieson. They suggested to drink with ginger ale. I know ginger is good for your health wise so I figure offsetting drinking the Jamieson w/ some ginger ale is half good? Kind of crazy the way I find reason to try things.

Makers Mark and Dewars are completly different animals from each other.

One's a bourbon (made predominantly from corn) and one is a whiskey (malted grain). Jamieson is similar to Dewars.

Yes, I know.

I should have made myself clearer.

They are all brands of whiskey. Different types of whiskey. But what I meant was, brand-wise, J's is to irish Whiskey what Maker's is to bourbon or Dewars is to scotch.

Jamieson's isn't a higher end product like Bulleit or Bookers or Johnny Walker Blue or Macallan.

Personally, I don't think irish whiskey is that similar to scotch whiskey.

But they're all good!
