I just tried the Jameson 18 yr in a bar the other night and it was really great. I wish now that I had tried the 12 yr as well. Then again I can afford to buy a bottle of that without having tried it as it is fairly reasonable. What do you think of the stardard Jameson?
a nice set to keep me company for a bit:
Macallan 18yo - 1982 vintage

A basic, but respectable start for a neophyte I think! Certainly it has given me a nice range of styles to experiment with before I really start...
