Powers Gold Label 100cl
This blend was introduced in 1791 by John Power & Sons, originally a pure pot still whiskey, now a popular blend of pot still and grain whiskeys.
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.
Best Bang for ther Buck
After trying many other budget scotches and whiskeys, this is the winner for me. It has some heat but there''s a real nice smokey, honey flavor with the traditional caramel, toffee and barley notes in there. It's a little sweet but not overdone like Monkey Shoulder. Add an ice cube or a little water to unlock the flavors, let is sit for a minute or two while giving it an occasional swirl to smooth out the blend and you have a great daily sipper. Jameson has the same bite and I don't like its heavy oatmeal taste. Powers also won't wreck you or taste off like Teachers or Famous Grouse. Blackbush is another nice choice but tends to be more pricey where I am.

Best there is. Clear, crisp smooth. Never an ache the next morning. I liked the old bottle with the 'medallion necklace" better than the the newer label.

I just found a bottle in my local store for less than 18£. I think this is just as silky as Redbreast 12 but with less flavor. Its kind and gentle and wont rip your head off like the Green Spot. But its also clear and crisp with one of the softest mouthfeels ive ever tried. Irish beauty in a bottle. CM

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.
