Description

Paddy is one of Ireland’s favourite whiskeys and is the only major Irish whiskey to use single malt in its blend, thus creating its uniquely rich & mellow flavour. First distilled in 1779, the whiskey originally sold under the unlikely name “Cork Distilleries Company Old Irish Whiskey” until a young salesman by the name of Paddy Flaherty joined the company in 1881. Paddy was a larger than life character who became famous in his native county for standing rounds of his favourite whiskey. Over time, Paddy became synonomous with the whiskey and publicans began writing to the distillery asking for another case of “Paddy’s whiskey”. Despite frequent differences of opinion with his employers concerning his unconventional sales techniques, the “Paddy whiskey” name stuck so much so that in 1912, the distillery owners bowed to public pressure and officially changed the name to “Paddy Irish Whiskey”. It could only happen in Ireland!

Paddy Whiskey is distilled three times from the finest quality barley and water. This ensures a whiskey, which is particularly light, well balanced and pure.

Its relatively low pot-still content and uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey, ensures Paddy is one of the softest of all Ireland's whiskeys.

During maturation in oak casks stored in dark aromatic warehouses for up to seven years, Paddy whiskey mellows, and takes on it's distinctive rich, golden colour.

Two percent of Paddy Whiskey is lost to the atmosphere during maturation. This evaporated whiskey has come to be called 'The Angel's Share'.


Expert Review

“Paddy is now enjoying export success, and has become an iconic brand with night-clubbers in France.

Paddy’s mellow flavour means it can be enjoyed mixed in a long drink with cola, lemonade or ginger ale, or in the more traditional manner - neat, on ice, or with water.

Nose

Fresh and lively, aromatic - a complex interplay of nutty maltiness, woodland fragrances and spice, with hints of honey and vanilla.

Taste

Mild, soft, a distinctive mellow maltiness, a touch of sweet oil, spiciness - and again those background notes of honey, vanilla, toasted wood.

Finish

A sweetness gently fading, mellow maltiness and mild woody notes lingering pleasingly.”
