As others have stated, your start with Scotch was an unfortunate one - 100 Pipers is an inexpensive blended bulk whisky which does not really represent anything else.
In general the palate of Scotch is different, and often stronger than Irish. If you are interested in trying blended Scotch only, I would say a quality blend is Johnnie Walker Black Label - but do not expect it to taste like Irish whiskey. Another is Chival Regal, this one is less powerful.
Then there are the single malt whiskies, and in them the variety of flavours in incredibly broad.
I enjoy Redbreast immensely, and Black Bush is rather nice. Similarly I do enjoy different versions of Balvenie for example, or Dalwhinnie double matured distiller's edition. Rosebank is a lovely soft and delightful Lowland malt, and is actually triple distiller much like the Irish whiskeys. Highland Park 12yo is a lovely whisky in its own right, and Glenfarclas 12yo is a fab sherried whisky.
If you have tried and liked an Irish whiskey called Connemara, perhaps you will enjoy also Talisker for example.
