Originally called "Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey", it wasn’t until 1913 that the name was changed to Paddy after legendary salesman, Paddy Flaherty. First produced in 1779, Paddy Whiskey is triple distilled in Cork, Ireland, made unusually with all three styles of Irish whiskey: single pot still, single malt and grain before being aged up to 7 years. Its relatively low pot-still content and uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey, ensures Paddy is as Jim Murray once wrote, “One of the softest of all Ireland's whiskeys”.

Tasting Notes

"As you bring this Irish to your nose, light floral and nutty cereal grains will greet you with lots of fruit aromas, and hints of honey, spice and vanilla. One taste will reveal the mild, distinctive cereal maltiness, and delicately sweet floral flavors with subtle background notes of spiced vanilla and butterscotch. The finish is gentle, spicy and dry with more mellow malts, black pepper and a lingering woodiness reminiscent of its time in oak. "
