Prior to bottling the matured whiskey is vatted or "married"
as it is sometimes referred to In this the final stage of the
distilling process. The purpose of vatting is to fuse together many
casks of whiskey in order to produce as consistent a quality and
flavour as possible . This is the art of the blender, however Irish
Whiskey producers have a historical disdain for blended whiskey and
even today with a few exceptions the vatting process for brands such
as Power's or Paddy will take only two or three days.
