I tried whiskey for the first time last night -- Jameson, and was pleasantly surprised. I'm typically a gin/tequila/vodka person.
I was satisfied with the lack of an aftertaste, and the amount of (what I assume to be) peaty flavor didn't really bother me. I didn't even need a chaser.
What would be a good whiskey for me to try next? I've been told that Jack Daniel's is very sugary/syrupy, and as someone who tends to stray from that, I'm hesitant to try it. Would the peat in JW Scotch be too much? What about Bourbon?
Suggestions would be great.
