If Protestant Irish drink Bushmills and Catholic Irish drink Jameson, what do Orthodox Irish drink?

Well, this Anglican has been known to enjoy Tullimore Dew as well as, in times past, a drop of the others you mentioned.  I've not heard of any errm  'jurisdictional' divisions on the matter of who drank what.

Of the two, this Orthodox Ulster Scot prefers Jameson.  Smiley

Recently on "Thirsty Traveller" it was mentioned that the Protestant Irish tend to drink Bushmills and RC Irish tend to drink Jameson. I can attest that the Catholics I've met from deep Irish roots do tend to drink strictly Jameson and never Bushmills. I wondered, should we have our own brand of Whiskey? And if so which one or will one of the two suffice.

 All one needs to do is look at the geographical location of the two; Jameson is made in the Republic of Ireland (predominantly Roman Catholic), while Bushmills is made in Northern Ireland (predominantly evil, loyalist theives  Wink ).  All kidding aside, the issue is probably not as divisive as it once was (except probably here in the US), but it's still connected to The Troubles and shouldn't be so easily dismissed or ignored.

If I still drank, it would be bourbon. Keep the narsty scotch.

And Jack Daniels ain't bourbon.

I second the Scotch, preferably 20 yo Glenmorangie on the rocks.

Although I must say the best whisky I've had in recent years was a bottle of 20 yo Powers that my sister brought back for me from Ireland.  It was incredibly smooth and had a delicious apricot aftertaste.  I'm very sad that they don't export that particular age.

I don't drink much let alone whiskey.  But every once in a rare five year cycle someone hands me a chilled jameson and it tastes ok.
