    I have only had 2 Irish Whisky's.
    Tyrconnell Single Malt which I loved, and Jameson which I thought was rather bland after the Tyrconnell.

    Interestingly, Tyrconnell is also a Cooley product.

    So far, the only Cooley whiskeys I've had have been Connemara bottlings, but I've been quite impressed by them. I'd only recommend Connemara if you like peated single malts, though.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    I think Jameson is designed not to offend anyone, so it's quite mellow and not too exciting.

    Tyrconnell is one of the softer malts available, but I think it's very nice, and getting better all the time as the stock they use ages.

    If you're talking about the regular NAS Jameson, then I'd agree! But the Jameson 12 is a rather good "bang for your buck" whisky, and Jameson 18 is silky class IMHO.

    Tyrconnell has a more forceful personality than Jameson's IMO - different flavour profile!

    I don't think it is discontinued, I've seen bottles of it in duty free a few months back. I do have to agree that it is a great dram, alot like the blackbush but with more potstill in it. Another great irish whiskey along the same lines is Jameson's Crested Ten. People call it an old man's whiskey but if you like pot still then you will like this. I like it better that Jameson's gold and the 18 and it is cheaper if you can find it.

    That bottle is the standard Bushmills white label. It is in the range of about 6 yrs. old and I have found it to be rather dull. In comparison, the 1608 is miles better!
