Thoughts on Swiss cheese...am I the only one?

So, I was way craving a grilled cheese sandwich this afternoon. I generally will make a grilled cheese with either Gruyere or a Sharp cheddar which come out lovely. However, the only cheese that we had in the fridge was Swiss, the other half's fave. So, I decided to try using it as a grilled cheese. It melted kind of funny, and to be honest, it had very little flavor. I tasted the buttered bread more than I did the cheese. Maybe I was just trying to grill the wrong type of cheese, or does Swiss cheese really lack the flavor that much of others? Thoughts SE'rs?
