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.
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.
It is not the same whiskey I grew to love
What I learned from my trip to Ireland
Whats Happened to King Paddy.
Before my trip to Ireland, I knew of Jameson and Bushmill. I was served Paddy's while a guest at someone's home and could hardly believe how smooth it was. Back in the States I asked my corner liquor store to order it and when I serve it, guests are amazed at how smooth Irish whisky can be.

I was always bleating onto my pals about Paddy being the best smooth Irish Whiskey at a good price. Forget Jameson's etc. However, having not had it for a while and returning in confidence to have a wee swallee, what should happen than its turned into some bog standard stranger. It wasn't broken so why interfere with it. Muppets.

Something has happened to my favorite whiskey. With the new label comes new content. The new Paddy's is smokier than the smooth taste of the previous label. I did the taste test after bringing a new label bottle to a dear friend, who happened to have a little of the original label. These are not the same whiskey. What's up with that?

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.
