Powers Gold Label Details
Also from The Midleton Whiskey Distillery Co
Whiskey or Whisky
What's in a name? Powers Gold Label whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in Ireland. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Powers Gold Label whisky, rather than whiskey.
Powers Gold Label Bottling Note
This blend was introduced in 1791 by John Power & Sons, originally a pure pot still whiskey, now a triple distilled blend of malt and grain whiskeys.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched today.
The nose is gentle and light with notes of caramel and cereal sweetness, a little honey and a touch of malt. The palate is soft and sublimely silken. There are notes of honey, cedar, malt and cereal grains. The finish is of medium-length with honey and juicy cereals.
solid and reliable
A step up from Bells and Grouse.... but not a fequenter for me.
... But this one fails to impress me in any department.
Nothing is wrong about it, but tere is no wow! anywhere either.
Average, no more, no less.

Yeah, a lot better than Bells etc, but I'd only plump for this if there was nothing better on the pub shelf. Jason Breen

This is lika an old friend, solid, reliable and consistent. To me this one sits right in the middle flavour-wise of all the irish whiskies, single malts included! It has spice, some citrus but also deep unsweet honey as well as the darker, heavier oaky and tobaccoish tones...in a nutshell: something for everyone. The balance, of course has to be good, and I feel Powers delivers, time after time.

NOT complex, but who cares? It's delicious. Tastes like the smell of a sweet cedar wood. Like a cigar box that had sweet tobacco in it. Very light and sweet in flavor while managing to have some heaviness in the body, and at least in my mind a heavy mouth feel.
This is in the class of Bushmills and Jameson, and is far superior to both, while being cheaper than Jameson.

Of the entry level Irish Whiskeys, this is definitely at the top.
There is really no "bad" Irish whiskey. It is all sweet and pleasant, but compared to Jameson/Tullamore/Bushmills, Powers has more depth, body, and finish.

Powers is the best whiskey for Irish Hot whiskeys, a double measure is a must, then insert the cloves into the Lemon [about 6] add a spoon of sugar, add the boiling water[ensure a metal spoon is in the glass before pouring the water in]....Lovely

Seriously. This is such an excellent blend. All the malt cereal sweetness you could want and with a solid dose of Irish pot still to chew on again and again, never getting old. I really hope 'discontinued' isn't as permanent as it sounds -- it's not like this is a limited release, is it?

I put this forth in a blind tasting in a room of 40 people of mixed Whisky experience - 39 out of 40 were incredulous that it wasn't an exception Speyside Malt - the remaining 1 couldn't believe I was serving aviation fuel! It's all about personal taste and I think this is a damn glorious Whiskey which stands tall against far more expensive Blends and Malts. I enjoy a Jameson - but it doesn't stand up against the warm,buttery notes of Powers. Try it and see what you think!
