I cannot fathom enjoying whiskey "tasting." 

I don't drink whiskey anymore, but when I did I'd wager that I drank more of it than most of this blog put together.  It all tastes like crap.  All of it.  If it didn't eff me up, I would have never drank it.  All whiskey also tasted better with Diet Coke mixed with it, except Scotch.  That tasted like crap in Diet Coke too.

Now that I don't drink anymore, if someone came up to me and handed me a whiskey that allegedly tasted like the finest whiskey in the world, but it contained zero intoxicants, there is zero chance in the world that I would drink it.  LOL.
I dabble in a little bit of everything. I've thought about which I would miss most if I ever gave up hooch. Beer and wine are obvious but there are some decent NA alternatives. Whiskey is the only spirit that I would legitimately miss the taste of.

I was similar and drank all types, but missed wine and beer more than whiskey, despite being a huge whiskey drinker.  Before I quite, I too thought "I'll probably drink NA beer."  However, I haven't and don't drink any of the NA stuff.  Part of whole process of being a non-drinker (a lot goes into that, and I am very, very happy to talk in detail about it if anyone ever wants to know more) involves (for me) not being in the situations where I'd even want to, AND my tastes have changed a bit as well. There is a particular flavor of "non-drinking" that I follow, which is a very common one.

I think Irish whiskey is very good. I think I may be done with bourbon for a while. Just getting into it. I’ve enjoyed Tullamore DEW and Busker. Looking for Green Spot after reading good reviews about it. Any other recommendations?

I like both from time to time. Bourbon can certainly get sweet over time.

Jameson black label is great

Apparently this is newly imported into KS, that’s what the sign said anyway. It was pretty good.
