Irish whiskey has a lot in common with Scotch. It's just smoother and milder. There aren't nearly as many varieties. In fact there's only 3 distilleries on the whole island to Scotland's 90. One makes Jameson, one a handful of small brands and way up north they make Bushmills. This was my grandmother's brand. I'll have to start calling it grandmother's milk.
