Sorry about this...

Paddy Irish Whiskey Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The nose is oily and fresh with floral notes, cereal grains and plenty of fruit.

Palate: The palate is sweet and of medium-body with toffee and cereals, a rosewater note with a little butterscotch and vanilla.

Finish: The finish is spicy and dry with a little black pepper and oak.

Paddy Irish Whiskey Reviews

Easiest drink sweet and floral

I was worried this was going to be cheap and therefore poor. But it's a nice light sweet drink with a wood aftertaste. This is now my go to bottle.

19th September 2020

I just love it neat.

It’s like nectar on an angel’s tongue.

11th September 2020

Competive pricing and good quality.

Neat, a shot a day. At almost 77 a nice before dinner treat. Vancouver, Canada. Brings back memories of the summer of 2002 and our trip by rental car around Ireland.

3rd August 2020

Affordable and Awesome.

I always go to Paddy. I try out EVERYTHING... from EVERYWHERE... and at this price point, it is simply unmatched. I love it.

16th July 2020

Not good

Not for me, not a good irish whiskey. No subtle flavours at all

3rd July 2020

Rough and Raw - AVOID

This is genuinely rough and raw and deeply unpleasant, and it has actually got rougher as the years have gone by
I don't understand how any of the other reviews can rate this, regardless of individual taste.
As a diehard Irish whiskey lover this is the WORST possible offering

4th June 2020

It is actually quite nice (and cheap on the wallet).

Sweet and smooth. Goes down nice enough. Initial notes are of sweet vanilla. No lasting aftertaste, which was slightly disappointing. Would I buy again? Yes probably as an 'every day' whiskey.

27th March 2020

Worth the price, I think so!

I bought this because the name was about as Irish as one can get. The low price didn't hurt either.
The packaging is quite plain, nothing too fancy.
The nose is so mild, I really didn't find anything too outstanding about it. Very mild sugary smell, just a hint of vanilla and spice.
The flavor is quite nice. Mildly sweet. Very smooth, no burn to speak of.
I drank this neat, no water added. If you're looking for a mild during dinner drink, this one oughta do quite well. For the price, I'm not complaining...

17th March 2020

Good on the tongue, easy on the wallet

I like this Whisky very much. It is a smooth flavourful Whisky that has an easy finish. Hard to find here in Florida priced nicely and greatly appreciated once you track it down. I buy it when I can!

1st January 2020

This is my tipple

This is probably the most popular Irish whiskey in Ireland. I have tried the rest, not just Irish but also Scotch, American and even Japanese, but I always come back to Paddy. I drink it with just a little water and never ice.

24th December 2019

spot on with nash's

all Paddy needs is a drop of red lemonade and its perfect

16th December 2019

Grand drink this

Smoothe, and lovely. It is my go to Irish whiskey wither in the Ireland or here....... always.......... and I am 72 yrs of age. All good for me.

25th November 2019

Beats signal malts

Best ever beats single malts

13th October 2019

Seriously underrated!

This is a brilliant budget whiskey (£15 in some shops!) than compares with others at more than twice the price.

5th October 2019

Five star excellence!

It's wonderfully smooth with delicious flavor.

3rd October 2019

An enjoyable dram which sets you up with a tap left and finishes with a peppery right.

Surprisingly smooth start with a bit of a punch finish. You can really pick up the peppery bite at the end.

Best value for the money!

27th September 2019

Need it

Why is it so hard to get a 1 ltr bottle

23rd August 2019

A pleasant surprise

I'd heard Paddy's spoken of over the years as a 'rough' whiskey, nothing could be further from the truth. Open up this pale spirit with a splash of water and it is sweet, warm, delicate & appealing. Now that I know Tesco's stock it I'm sure I'll be drinking more of this!

8th August 2019

Excellent whiskey for a budget connoisseurs

We tried it tonight for the first time and it the best Irish whiskey we have had in while. Compared to Kilbeggan, Tallamore and Jameson, Paddy is our second. Tullamore is still my favourite, but paddy was a delightful suprise. Enjoyed neat, it is smooth with a complex flavour of sweet and spicy. Really good whiskey to enjoy with a good cigar.

29th July 2019

Paddy Irish whiskey

Surprisingly smooth without any burn, made with superior water with a flavour that thens to grow on you. Excellent value for the price and an affordable starter to Irish whiskey.

3rd July 2019

My favorite, and I can afford anything.

I first loved the DEW and still do. In USA all they know is Jameson, excellent. Bushmills is very off for me, and I have had every brand in both Ire. and Ulster. For the buck, Paddy's every time.

29th June 2019

Great taste and style!

Master of malt, Paddy’s is my first choice! The new bottle and cork suit the quality whisky inside. And now, the new bottle wrapped in the “Paddy Post” inside stylish packaging! Marketing genius!

31st May 2019

Lovely, but has the batches varied over time?

Interesting, unless I'm going nuts I'm sure there has been a variation in taste. I bought a couple of bottles a couple of years ago, lovely. Then more recently and wasn't as I remembered, harsh, a little unrefined. Spotted it on the shelf in Tesco very recently, on special, so bought 2 bottles (and why not) Bingo, delighted. For me it's the smooth malty flavour (to my taste buds) and slight sweetness is appealing. It doesn't last long I'm afraid.

22nd May 2019

They changed again

Theyve gone and changed bottle type, label and name. It's now PADDY'S, w brown label with a 4 division Ireland in gold color.

9th April 2019

Paddy's is a great "gateway" to Irish whiskey. And at $20 for 750 ml bottle you really can't beat the price. Paddy's will have a spot in my home bar.

The description above is pretty much spot-on. Was surprised, however, at how "delicate" this whisky was. Nevertheless, I found Paddy's to be great for mixing or "on-the-rocks" with dessert (tried mine with a slice of key lime pie).

30th March 2019

Good drink for the price

Not bad, nice taste when mixed with water, purchased in PA for $19 and change, not exactly a high end whiskey but for under 20 not too bad , C+ , maybe B -

18th March 2019

Good value Irish Whisky

Fruity and spicy, lovely with ginger ale or sipped on its own

14th March 2019

Unacceptable to the skilled palate.

The taste mirrors a mildew flavor, which renders this brand undrinksble.

13th March 2019

Great but here in Florida for $19.99 for 750ml

I'm a big fan of this whisk(e)y it a very nice biscuit and butter flavor that stays on the tounge for just the right amount of time.

11th February 2019

Excellent especially for the price-point in the USA

Good mouth-feel, smooth midbody, nice finish. Great straight or in mixed drinks. Where have I been all these years? Minus the harshness of Jameson's but forceful enough to be there in Irish Coffee.

7th February 2019

Very good mid range whiskey.

Very good whiskey for price.
Easy to drink, smooth finish.
Good every day drop.

Typical of Irish Whiskey, it seems that the standard Irish whiskey blend is head and shoulders above most, if not nearly all Scotch. For instance, compare if you will to Johnny Red or Old Grouse, or Teachers etc...
no comparison!

24th January 2019

Best ever!

I have been drinking Paddy since I visited in 2000. Best I have ever had. Very smooth!

25th December 2018

Better than Jameson

I like it. It's my go-to whiskey now.

21st December 2018

Good mid-range Irish whiskey

Very smooth. Pleasant (if a tad unexciting) neat or on the rocks, but it's a fantastic mixer.

Flavour-wise, it's basically a better version of Jameson.

1st December 2018

You won't be disappointed

This is a belting whiskey. I'd go as far to say its better than Jameson although not got the kick Jameson has. But only tried Paddy 2 days ago and I love it. It's so nice, just pissed off its in such short supply in supermarkets.

26th October 2018

Not the best product

Very rough on the palate.

21st October 2018

Personnel favorite

One of the smoothest whiskey. One of my favorites.

18th July 2018

Found the One

Love the flavor, super smooth. Was a beer drinker and decided to venture into whiskey. Must have tried 20, then this one. Loved it, then I moved and couldn't find it so I tried other stuff that wasn't bad. Just found it and without a doubt best whiskey I have had, despite the price. If you are a scotch person just buy some Paddy's and flip some ashes in it and it will be the best scotch you've had. I dont like scotch, it taste like ashes in my whiskey, which I have had before.

16th July 2018

It’s smooth

Ordered this whisky on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday it’s a birthday present it was superbly packed and I am sure my husband will enjoy it he had a paddy whisky somewhere but couldn’t find it locally. Very impressed with the service.

26th April 2018

Bang for Buck

For the price, hard to beat Paddy. Sure, there’s better whiskies out there. But you pay for what you get... except with Paddy. Their quality is higher than what they charge.

Paddy’s doesn’t have that “spike” of flavor that can sometimes overwhelm the flavor of the oak, or wood cask. It has a bold, and smooth taste with lingers in a good way. I almost want to say Paddy’s sell themselves short, but I’m happy they have and care not for a change.

18th April 2018

Paddy is all I need

The best whiskey you can find in this price range. Simple stuff, but far from boring.
Try it, I think you will be glad that you did.

26th February 2018

Paddy is all I want

No airs and graces, no overcooked cabbage, no whiff of bonfire. No, this is just Irish whiskey, plain and simple - I love it's lightness and restorative effect. It would be false of me to pretend I'd prefer a dearer piece of marketing. I wouldn't. I'm happy with a Paddy mixed 1:2 with sparkling water.

7th February 2018

Had better...

Pretty tasteless, even for an Irish blended whiskey. Their site advertises cocktails, but its watered down enough. Spend a little more and buy yourself one of Jameson's special editions, or Tullamore Dew.

24th November 2017

Very good

My dad brought this back from Ireland several years ago. Just started drinking it and my wife and I love it. We are both new to drinking whiskey

20th November 2017

... It's The Finest Of Whiskeys

... 🇮🇪☘️ I LOVE IT !!! ☘️🇮🇪

It's Taste, Its Aroma, Its History.

It's Bottle, It's Label, Its IRISHNESS!!!

... That's Why I Cherish My Paddy!!!

28th October 2017

Good for those that like a light finish

Very delicate - wouldn't sip it neat On the rocks coaxed the flavour out more.

15th September 2017

Semper Fi, never dry..

Was turned on to this years ago by a member of the "an tSeirbhís Chabhlaigh" and a Special Boat Service Royal Marine (none of us supposed to be where we were, but there we were nevertheless). It's now a staple in my bar and at every US Marine Corps Birthday Ball I attend, where it doesn't last long.

2nd July 2017

Highly recommended for whiskey newbies as it is very smooth with a delicate finish.

Amazing whiskey! Highly recommended for whiskey newbies as it is very smooth with a delicate finish. For the price, easily compare to other whiskey 2-3 time the price.

Too bad we can't find it in Canada!

16th June 2017

Silky Smooth Paddy - Like Roy Keane ! . . . . . . . Not.

In my opinion the best whiskey/whisky u can buy for the price.

13th April 2017

Favourite !

Wonderfully smooth whiskey, easily drinkable. Great session drink as i first tried this on holiday in lanzarote with a few beers and fell in love instantly.

4th April 2017

love it

Hi im colleen diaz from manurewa auckland nz and i love this brand it is very smooth and it taste great very enjoyable and awesome cocktails as well

18th March 2017

Great value

Paddy is very nice, smooth, very drinkable. I'm glad I gave it a try when my go to whiskey was out of stock.

12th February 2017

Tremendous whiskey for the price

Received a bottle of this for Christmas from an Irish family member, and wow; I was not expecting to be blown away like this! Such a smooth and sweet whiskey, a drop of water in the glass really brings out the flavour. I will definitely be buying this again!

28th December 2016

Salute to a great Irish Whisky...

Vanilla and Butterscotch flavors are incredible...

17th December 2016


What a lovely whiskey

26th November 2016

Pat Hunter

The best

20th November 2016

Not the best but not the worst, either.

Not sure where the floral notes, pepper, smoothness are, et al, that other reviews note. I get slight malt, acetyl alcohol (ala nail varnish remover) along with the noted sweetness. I think that this one is perfect for a mixer or a wee friend to accompany a pint. I used various glasses, Glen Cairn, Snifter, shooter, etc. Same result: Harsh on the nose, very little mouth feel and a curious but short finish. Maybe I just got a bad batch...

9th November 2016

Perfection in a bottle

I pick up two bottles every time I visit the old sod. Smooth, mild, and feel poor when I am out.

6th November 2016


Great Irish has won every whiskey tasting competition with the boys....can't get it in Canada though....please let us know how to get it without having to fly to Ireland

5th November 2016

Our fave

Best Irish whiskey of ever. First had it in Tralee with a friend. Now home in the states we buy it at every opportunity.

23rd October 2016

Does the job with class...

Easy to drink, good flavor and take the edge off with a nice even mellow buzz... One of the best blends I have had on this side of $80 USD.

16th August 2016

Birthday gift

My son gave me a bottle of paddy whiskey for Father's Day and it is the best Irish whiskey I have had
Thank you

21st June 2016

Paddy Irish whiskey

Very smooth and peppery nice water ,cheers......

11th June 2016

Paddy's all right!

Paddy is a very reasonably priced Irish whiskey. Using all three distilling processes makes for a very easy to drink blend. Smooth sweet and that nice little punch of pepper to finish. This is not a higher priced Single Pot or well aged single malt. It's not complex or compromising. It's just an easy drinking Irish whiskey. Slaínte!

1st May 2016


I love this stuff & am elated that we can now buy it in South Africa !!!!

6th April 2016


The peppery taste is unique this is my first time sipping this whiskey quite smooth

2nd April 2016

Where irish

We're irish and we love this water....

19th March 2016

Dangerously easy to drink

As the title suggests, this whiskey is pretty smooth and goes down easily.

Very citrusy, floral, and honey-sweet, not at all alcoholic. The finish is dry and very black-peppery, I even sneezed a couple of times after having finished a dram, fascinating!

I like it very much!

It is very smooth and delicate, and I think that drinking it on the rocks or with a lot of water would destroy it completely, although I haven't tried it. In any case, it is very enjoyable sipping it neat or with just a few drops of water to open it up a little.

13th March 2016

It's alright

I've only ever tried this on the rocks. I'd classify it as being on and around the same level as the orginal Jameson and Powers Gold Label. You can drink it neat or on the rocks and its okay but there is definitely better stuff out there. Best for drinking mixed in my opinion.

9th January 2016

Jimbo Blue Hen / USA

Incredible value tipple. Slainte !

3rd December 2015


A beautiful whisky!

15th November 2015

Great daily sipper!

I keep four bottles of Irish whiskey in my home...Paddy,Green Spot,Yellow Spot, and Midleton Very Rare. Special occasions, special guests we choose from them all...but my daily sipper is Paddy. Cannot beat the value for a whiskey that can well hold its own in this group!

16th October 2015


One of the best reasonably priced whiskeys I have tried. And trust me, I have tried a lot! It good I live in the USA instead of Ireland... or I would drink Paddy instead of water!

22nd September 2015

excellent (still) for the asking price

it's been a year+ since i've had this....12 years ago, brought a bottle duty free home from the Shannon airport...sure, it's a bit different, but still very smooth, a touch of testy raggedness (the grain...but woven in well...)...this is better than Bushmills, Jameson and Tully...all good, but not as good as masking/weaving-in that grain $19 here in Pennsylvania, it's still a bargain. a nice break from bourbon, rye and scotch

23rd August 2015

In memory of my Grandfather

My Grandfather was a tough little Irishman who was known for being a bit testy. (Two drinks and a whiff of the cork he was ready to fight the world) So to honor him I picked up a bottle of Paddy. This isn't a Scotch - it's a whiskey, and a pretty good one at that. Whiskey shouldn't be too smooth; otherwise, it looses its taste. This has a very good balance with a nice finish.

18th May 2015

What I learned from my trip to Ireland

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.

11th March 2015

Whats Happened to King Paddy.

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.

30th December 2014

It is not the same whiskey I grew to love

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?

20th December 2014

Far better

Very oily and smooth more body then Jamesons and Dew I suspect a higher quantity of pot still whiskey included in the blend. The best of the
starting price irish blends my go to irish whiskey

24th November 2014


The juice of the barley for me!!!

24th October 2014

Bit o' the Irish

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.

12th August 2014


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.

17th July 2014

Nice mellow whiskey

This is a great whiskey in the 25 dollar range I just bought one at ralphs for 12.99. It is a great tasting irish. Very pleasant very smooth. I like better than jameson and bushmills. I'm mostly a single malt scotch drinker but this irish is amazing.

7th May 2014

Best Irish Whisky

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).

2nd February 2014

Paddy Irish whiskey

The best balanced Irish whiskey money can buy! been to Ireland four times, found my favorite and that's after extreme tasting others!
Steve D

2nd January 2014

The best Irish Whiskey

I've been enjoying Paddy for a couple of years now. I had the pleasure of touring the distillery in Cork in 2012. Jameson, Powers. and Paddy are all made there. While all of them are outstanding, Paddy just is a bit more elegant than its cousins.

11th December 2013

My favorite of the working man whiskeys

I prefer Paddy's to the similarly priced powers and Jameson. Smooth.

22nd November 2013

What a nice surprise

I've been drinking Irish Whiskeys lately, particularly Michael Collins, sometimes Jameson, but came upon this at $20 a bottle. Sweet. It's very, very smooth and amazing for the money.

4th November 2013

Good irish man

Paddys is the only whiskey my family ever drinks..special occasions the bottle comes out
Genoa illinois

2nd November 2013

Jameson is good but gives hangovers this doesn't

I like the taste of Jameson better but this is great stuff and does not give the hangovers like Jameson can. I have tested this theory 6 times now with equal consumption, with 3 others I may add, we all came to the same conclusion.

17th May 2013


I had Paddy for the first time on a layover in Shannon..I buy a couple bottles every time I fly through.... smooth and great tasting whiskey

31st March 2013

shell and jon in uk

my wife brought it back home after laying her father to rest in Dublin and we have liked it ever since

22nd March 2013

1L bargain here in Pennsylvania

Highly recommended...smooth...only a hint of the grain...the malt and oak and honey'd oak come barreling through with grace. only $26.99 for us...and often on sale for $2 off. this is 1L...i remember when i brought back a bottle from the Shannon Airport...glad we can finally enjoy it whenever we want it. even impressed an Irish friend who never had it and was not expecting it to compete with his favorite drams. it's not quite a 5 star but then it is closer to 5 than 4. this distillery impresses!

17th February 2013

not for me

once will be enough..... prefer jamesons

16th February 2013


Smooth sipping whiskey.

5th February 2013

Old Jim

Paddy is God's whiskey.

5th January 2013

The Village

I went to the Village in Dublin to see the New York Dolls a few years ago and started drinking Paddy in one of the pubs (Davitz ?) - haven't stopped since!

28th August 2012


I sipped a few and I forgot to rate Paddy

16th May 2012


Paddy is as smooth as silk with no headache in the morning.
Neat or in a Manhatten "Paddy" is elegant to sip.

16th May 2012

Great Whiskey

A wonderful smooth and fun drink!

29th March 2012


I love my whiskey but I have never enjoyed this.

29th February 2012

I just got a one litre bottle in Iraq for $16!

Very nice, very smooth and very good value for money!

11th June 2011


How is $40 for .750ml bottle cheap? its more then most single malts

3rd April 2011


best i ever tasted

9th August 2010

Cheap and lovely whiskey

This is the one, cheap and really lovely taste!!

19th July 2010

For Sale in U.S.?

I love Paddy's and my wife always asks for a hot whiskey w/ Paddy's when she isn't feeling her best. But it's not sold in the U.S. and only available outside the border. Why is that? Also, Is it owned by the maker of Jameson and/or Pernod???

14th July 2010

The Best Everyday whiskey there is.

I drink loads of lovely and many expensive whiskies, but if I had to choose one whiskey only, it would be this. I just love it with ice. I could drink it every day. I never get tired of it. I've been drinking it for 30 years. Other stronger tasting whiskies pall rapidly on the palate.
