Powers Gold Label

70 cl

Powers is an old classic. It was once made in the old John's Lane Distillery in Dublin, but since the 1970s it has been made at Midleton in County Cork. Little has changed in the recipe, however. At one time it was the best selling whiskey on the Island of Ireland, and there are still pockets around the country where it outsells Jameson. The blend is dominated by generous pot still content which is blended with a small amount of grain whiskey. All ageing is done in ex-bourbon casks which gives the whiskey a nicely rounded character.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Boiled sweets, citrus zest, orange juice, with some floral hints and touches of spicy oak.
Palate Light and zesty with some good pot still flavour characters. Deliciously fruity and honeyed. A classic Irish blend.
Colour Bright gold.

Peter Mulryan The Whiskeys of Ireland. 'A belter of a nose. It is easy to spot the signature pot still cereal coming from the unmalted barley. Theres honey and spice and all things nice. Ravishing. Taste: A carnival of taste sensations grip the tongue..long and lingering. Comments: If you are broke and can buy just one bottle of Irish, make it Powers gold label.'
