Paddy’s Irish Whiskey is distilled by Irish Distillers, at the Midleton distillery in County Cork. It is a blended offering that is just about as affordable as Irish Whiskey should get. If you find a sub $20 bottle I’d really question what went into it.
The nose is really subtle. It’s a little malty, a little sweet that blends with a little alcohol.
The sip is just about as subtle. This is a thin whiskey. The mouth feel is watery, but its also beautifully simple. I’d say this is perfect for those times when the friends or the food is the focus, and the whiskey is going to flow freely, which is perfect as this Paddy’s Irish Whiskey is just about as affordable as it gets.
The finish is a little spice that overpowers the malt, but not in a bad way.
Paddy’s Irish Whiskey scored a 66/100, making it Sip Worthy, if event only by a point. Don’t let that score scare you off however. At this price, that score is really impressive.
- For $20 bucks this is a great buy.
- Great budget whiskey.
- Affordable whiskey for new drinkers.
- Not a lot of complexity. Will underwhelm a more appreciative pallet.
- Not a lot of anything on the nose.
- If you drink a good bit of this, you might have a hangover. I’ve noticed that some bottles give me a headache the morning after, and this is one of them.
