Nose Cinnamon, clove oil and white pepper in balance with russet apples and ripe pears, on a background of charred oak.
Taste Cinnamon, green peppers and a touch of nutmeg combined with orchard fruits, vanilla and toasted oak. All laid upon a crisp barley core.
Finish Long Pot Still oils and spices slowly fade to rich barley and toasted wood.
The nose is filled with the unmistakable pot still character and classic, hefty Irish Whiskey flavors of honeycomb with toasted grain, biscuits, vanilla cream, and touched with subtle notes of black pepper and cardamom. Wonderfully balanced and uplifting (Mar 2012)
The Number One selling Irish whiskey in Ireland, Powers Irish Whiskey has become “the father of all Irish Whiskeys” through a tradition based on over 200 years of distilling whiskey. Powers is distinctive for its warm and full-bodied flavor, an explosive mixture of spices, which linger on the tongue.
The Powers flavor is the product of the whiskey’s triple distillation in both old-fashioned copper pots and column stills. Powers is aged 100 percent in Bourbon casks for five to six years. A past recipient of The American Taste Award for Excellence and a Double Gold winner in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Powers is touted as the perfect whiskey for the best-tasting Irish Coffee.
