Found a bottle of Paddy Irish Whiskey at the local liquor store, probably on sale, and decided to bring a bottle home. The 40% ABV Irish Whiskey is triple distilled and the aged on oak according to the label. Unfortunately that is where this one diverges from really great Irish offerings. The aroma and flavor does contain the oak as promised, but it lacks depth and actually has an odd off characteristic of plastic which I attribute to the oak aging. The plastic character is present in both the aroma and flavor and even without that being present this would not be worth the price of admission. My suggestion is to let this remain on the shelf for some other unsuspecting rube and to spend your hard earned money on something better. Sorry folks, this one is a pass.
