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!
