Paddy's has a light and smooth character. The whiskey is very easy going, and while a whiskey aficionado might find it unsophisticated, its simple virtues make it very approachable for casual drinkers and enjoyable for just about anyone.
The nose is grainy in a honey-nut style, and has an oily, aromatic quality that make this aspect of the whiskey just about the heaviest thing about it. On the palate, it is a mellow, soft whiskey, distinctively malty and with hints of toffee and vanilla. The finish continues that flavor, running to soft and sweet before ending on a decidedly woody, dry note.
