If I like Jameson, what else might I like?

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.

Many thanks-
