I know I'm a day late on this, but as I type this I have an open bottle of delicious Irish whiskey on my desk and I can't wait for all of you to try it. It is a BARGAIN! Our beer buyer, an whiskey fan, Bryan Brick went to NYC a week ago and sent me a text telling me to buy all the Paddy's I could find. I didn't even know what it was, but from what I have learned, it is one of the oldest Irish whiskey brands that has not been available in the U.S. for over 15 years. It just hit the East Coast recently and we got it in today. The price is $31.99 for a LITER! If you no longer take pleasure in simple, light, easy going whiskeys, then this one isn't for you, but if you like everyday drinkers that mix well with ice or soda, this one's for you. I found it completely charming with notes of grain and malty cereal and a bit of vanilla on the finish. The sense of quality doesn't really kick in until the end when you think to yourself, "You know, this really is delicious." The ultimate party bottles or BBQ spring/summer whiskey.

Paddy's Irish Whiskey 1L $31.99 - Now available in the U.S. for the first time in over 15 years!! Paddy Whiskey is distilled three times from the finest quality barley and water. This ensures a whiskey, which is particularly light, well balanced and pure. Its relatively low pot-still content and uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey, ensures Paddy is one of the softest of all Ireland's whiskeys. Our beer buyer Bryan Brick thinks it's the best deal he's ever seen with Irish whiskey - the quality to price point ratio is unparalleled, he says. And it comes in a liter bottle!
