Powers 12 Year Old Special Reserve

70 cl

Powers 12 Year old, like the standard Powers, is a blend with a good dollop of pot still content (making up the majority of the blend). Most ageing is done in ex-bourbon casks with a small amount also aged in sherry wood. In practice there are actually some very old whiskeys in this blend, some as old 20/21 years old.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Soft, fruity and honeyed. Very harmonious and elegant.
Palate Sweet and soft with honey, vanilla and tropical fruit flavours. Quite restrained and gentle but very smooth. This has a slight prickle and bite on the finish.
Colour Bright gold.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Peter Mulryan The Whiskeys of Ireland 'Extra time in the cask means this expression has even more of what you drink Powers for, namely body and flavour. At the same time the wood has softened some of gold label's harder edges.'
