Paddy Irish Whiskey
This week I would like to recommend an old favorite of mine, Paddy Irish Whiskey.
Paddy whiskey has been around for a very long time, so that fact alone says so much about the whiskey.
Paddy Whiskey was once called Cork Distillery Company Whiskey but changed to Paddy because of one of the rep’s the company had working for them. This reps name was no other that Paddy Flaherty. Every time Paddy visited a pub he would buy everybody in the bar a glass of Cork Distillery Company Whiskey to push the brand for his employer. Customers in the pubs he visited started to get used to this and they were very happy to see Paddy walk in to the bar because they knew they would be getting drop of the good stuff from him. As Paddy was doing this for sometime everybody start calling Cork Distillery Company Whiskey Paddy Whiskey. The people at the Cork Distillery Company heard what was going on, liked it and rebranded Cork Distillery Company Paddy Irish Whiskey.
Paddy Whiskey is a soft and light whiskey. It has a distinct nutty and charred wood character with a bit of sweetness coming in at the end. Good drinking if you are looking for something light and easy.
A bottle of Paddy will set you back about €28.
