A triple distilled blended Irish Whiskey produced in Cork and made, unusually, with all three styles of Irish whiskey: single pot still, single malt and grain. First produced in 1779, it wasn't until 1913 that it changed it's name to Paddy after legendary salesman Paddy Flaherty. Before that it had the rather catchy name of "Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey". Rolls right off the tongue that one.
Ask #WhiskySanta for Paddy.
He'll grant one wish per day until Christmas...
The nose is oily and fresh. There are floral notes and cereal grains. Plenty of fruit. The palate is sweet and of medium-body with toffee and cereals, a rosewater note with a little butterscotch and vanilla. The finish is spicy and dry with a little black pepper and oak.

Paddy's is hard to find. I did a taste test with my Jameson gold, and found the Paddy to be smoother and comparable regarding taste. I think it is case study in marketing, and someone decided that the Jameson needed the fancy packaging and high price tag. I love Paddys - especially with a Ginny.

Not worth a review. Taste? Much like American hair tonic; incorrect - that's giving it a bit too much character. $33.45? I paid a knock out $20.00 at Kroger's in Indiana. Horrendous.

Thankfully this is back in the US after a 20+ year absence. I find this whiskey smoother than Bushmills, which was my go to Irish until this resurfaced. I gave it a 4, because it's not as smooth as Union Phillips (Bourbon / Canadian blended whiskey).
