Jamieson Irish Whiskey

The store I go to is featuring this whiskey. Before I buy it, has anyone ever heard of it or tried it? I ask hoping you will save me money or worse, having to lose it. Thanks.

It's one of the most famous of the whiskeys.

We, ah, go through a lot of it.

I've even toured the factory in Dublin! I highly recommend this whiskey. I'd be curious to hear Uncle Bob's thoughts (it is not a bourbon but it is a close cousin).

Do we have any Irish posters here? I'm sure they can vouch for the whiskey.

It's ok but I prefer Bushmills, especially Black Bush.

Their regular label is a good but not great Irish whiskey. They do make better stuff, but it's very expensive.

I don't drink enough Irish to comment...I've had Jameson 12(?) before...Right now I have Bushmills and Powers...I drink the Bushmills on rare occasions --- The Powers I've used in a Homemade Irish Cream recipe mostly...

not my favorite Irish Whiskey. Tulamore Dew has better flavor and is smoother.

Tulamore Dew ? Now you have me confused! Is this particular whiskey imported too? I think this Jamieson Whiskey is imported. The fact you state it was smoother makes me interested. Guess I will have to see if the store even carries this Tulamore Dew. I thank you all for your comments. Truly helps to make the right choice. It is only cause I TRUST you so much and know you wouldn't want me to be disappointed. means a lot. Thanks
