Paddy Irish Whiskey
Paddy is a blended Irish whiskey produced by Irish Distillers at Midleton Co. Cork. It contains potstill, grain and malt whiskey and is bottled at 40%. It was first produced in 1779 and was called "Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey". Quite a mouthful. It changed its name in 1913 to "Paddy" after legendary salesman Paddy Flaherty.
Nose: A young smelling whiskey. Floral and grainy. Apples and lemon with a honey sweetness.
Palate: Smooth and slightly oily with canola, coffee and honey. Citrus and Apple with pepper.
Finish: Short finish. Honey and toffee with peppery notes.
Overall: A cheep and cheerful whiskey. Nothing to shout about. At a price tag around the £20 mark there are better options out there like Powers Gold Label or Jameson. But an enjoyable dram all the same.
