Paddy Irish Whisky, 700ml
About this deal
Irish Distillers produces Paddy for the Sazerac Company. The Jameson name is produced and distributed by Irish Distillers, a subsidiary of Pernod-Ricard.
But when Irishman Aeneas Coffey patented a device that pioneered column distillation in 1830, that dynamic was forever changed. Now, producers could utilize a modern approach and an energy-efficient technique to reduce the costs of spirits production. And as producers in Scotland, Canada and the United States embraced the new technology, many in Ireland were reluctant to change the formula that had given them the lion’s share of whiskey drinkers. Both Jameson and Paddy’s are blended Irish whiskeys made by combining the separate Irish whiskey sub-types made by Irish distilleries, including grain, malt and pot still whiskeys.How Paddy is made makes it distinctive from the mainstream of Irish whiskey. While Paddy is triple distilled just like all other Hibernian whiskey, Paddy’s blend uses an unusually high proportion of malt whiskey. Irish whiskey-makers favor an emphasis on pot still whiskey, and only a few examples of mostly-malt or all-malt Irish whiskeys are on the market today. Palate: Syrupy body. Again grain-forward, with a bit more tongue burn than I expected at 40% ABV. Sweet, with a lot of cereals, honey, and a hint of cocoa nibs. Paddy Irish Whiskey is an instantly recognizable Irish whiskey as it contains a map of Ireland on its label. It is a triple-distilled blended whiskey, which has been distilled in Cork ever since 1779.
The term ‘triple distillation’ has become synonymous with Irish whiskey production. And while most whiskey exported from the island is triple distilled, it’s important to note that Irish whiskey brands are not required to triple distill their products to be considered an Irish whiskey. B and B-: Good and above average. The best of the mass market whiskeys fit in this category, as do the bulk of the premium brands. A B- is three stars.
I’ve always felt that Paddy’s bottling makes the whiskey look like a cheaper product than it actually is, because the labeling style is outmoded without looking old fashioned. Don’t let that deceive you, however, since Paddy Old Irish Whiskey is thoroughly middle of the road stuff. The whiskey has a pale straw-gold coloring, and is bottled at 40 % alcohol. The whiskey is aged for up to seven years, although it comes with no aging statement.
Bushmills can proudly claim to be the oldest licensed distillery in the world and is one of Ireland’s best and most popular blends of single malt whiskies.
