Powers John's Lane Release 12 Year Old Single Pot Still

Powers John's Lane 12yo Bottling Note

A single pot still release of Powers whisky. It's matured in a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, and named after the distillery where it was first made, now sadly closed.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Barley, copper, fresh oak, leather, and juicy fruit.

Palate: Very smooth with vanilla, dry spice, chocolate and coffee. There is dark fruit here too, raisins and blackcurrants.

Finish: More vanilla and drying copper notes.

Overall: A very well balanced whiskey with not a note out of place. Lovely.

My favourite!!!

I first tasted this in a restaurant in Oughterard in Galway - sublime! As a newbie to the delights of whiskey I fell in love with this! My darling husband searched high and low to find it somewhere and came up with you! I keep it though for special dinners and guests who appreciate something special !

Excellent with quite a kick

Cambridge Whisky Nut says:

Simply the best Irish Whiskey I've ever encountered... So full of dried fruit and honeyed notes - and unlike many other Irish whiskeys, it's not subtle on the nose and taste! Its aromas are extremely present while being smooth altogether. A heck of an experience this whiskey. A must have on your whisky shelf!

The best Ireland has to offer

Recently travelled to Ireland and tried as many different whiskeys as I could. This one was the best and the only one I brought home with me. Will not disappoint!

Bang for your buck!

Great value and the reason I've fallen for Irish whiskey. Smooth, peppery, spicy and really well balanced.

Smooth as they get, with a bourbon sweetness

This stuff is really really good. Like gold in a glass if I had to describe it.
I'm not usually a Irish drinker, but after reading reviews and seeing the bottle in my local shop I couldn't resist. It is so tasty with such a nice flavor profile.
Nose: sweet bourbon, vanilla, chocolates, and oak
Palate: smooth, sweet, and savory. The bourbon taste still sticks out to me.
Finish: copper, vanilla, and love

This is a good whisky. Reason why I didn't give it a 10 is because I am out looking for different flavors. This one reminds me a little of a very well tamed bourbon.

Like a cuddle in a glass

Slowly envelopes you in loveliness.

It is a slightly peppery version of the already outstanding Powers whiskey. Will be on my corn flakes in the morning if I win the lottery.

Irish whiskey

Really smooth; it has all the subtle sweet kick of a great Irish whiskey and the subtle but full aged bourbon finish. Outstanding whiskey.

23rd January 2016

Very Enjoyable

Picked up a bottle from Ace Spirits Craft Beer and Whiskey Boutique in Hopkins, MN.

Pours a gentle amber color. The nose is loaded with scents of vanilla, spice, and leather. Tastes of vanilla, chocolate, spice, and copper with hints of currants and raisins. Wonderfully balanced, with a bit of a spicy (white pepper?) finish. Mild copper notes and more vanilla express themselves the longer it lingers on your tongue.

Bolder Flavor for my taste absoultely wonderful

I really like my Yellow Spot and what a treat to switch off to this
wonderful deeper flavor whiskey.For me anyway its a treat of perfection.

29th July 2015

I must completely agree with the word Phenomenal

I do love my Redbreast 12 but for a change of pace this was so good it is off the chart.I drink all Irish whiskey neat so it has to be all about quality and this was/is EXCELLENT 5 star and then some.

23rd July 2015

Seriously phenomenal whiskey

For $65 usd I do not think you will find another whiskey with such complex flavor and ultimate smoothness. John lanes release has a end note extremely close to the midleton which is far more than 2x the price stateside. I think I just found my newest go to bottle in my nectar cabinet. I love irish whiskey and this is my 2nd favorite experience yet only following the Jameson rarest vintage which is pure bliss in a bottle. If you are serious about quality this is a must stock piece in your collection and everyone who says they are a irish fan needs to try the jameson rarest its a true pleasure. I always buy the shelf out when I find john lanes from this point forward I will guarntee you it is that beautiful

Great Value

One of the better Irish Whiskeys out there and for the price it might be the best!

26th June 2015

Mr. Joe

This is what I've been looking for my entire life! Damn good whisky.

23rd March 2015

Not Good Value

A lovely whiskey but it's not £20 per bottle better than standard Powers, Powers Gold Label is a fabulous spicy caramel oily pot still, the 12 year old is good- I was drinking both last Sunday in Dublin and I kept returning to the cheaper Gold Label

11th March 2015

If you like Redbreast, you'll love this

A wonderful flavourful dry spicy oakey citrusy Irish whiskey. I've an open bottle on my shelf for 4 years now that I tipple from occasionally and it holds its flavour really solidly, unlike those expensive smokey Isla whiskies which fade away quickly after opening. If you're useed to Jameson and other sweet sherry-loaded Irish whiskeys you might not take to it.

5th March 2015

Best I have had

love. and lust.
I am trying to track down Cask Strength? yes, that exists.
would compare it to the quality of Booker's 8 yr. bourbon in terms of an Irish that rocks
as hard and as long as a State-side--pardon if this comparison rubs some here the wrong way.
love this juice. reflective bender here. (will make any inlaw visit palatable!)

5th March 2015

The best

Love this works well eating chocolate orange.just amazing always have a bottle of this in the cabnet

21st February 2015


I'm a McKnight. This the best Irish Whiskey period.

7th February 2015

Classic Vintage Whiskey at its Best

An unfiltered whiskey that let's it's flavour open your taste buds so that you can appreciate the best it has to offer. A perfect whiskey to enjoy on your own, or with your very best mates.

1st August 2014

Can't wait to crack the bottle!

I just received a bottle for Father's Day and am looking forward to a good night to open the bottle!

16th June 2014

It a whiskey to take you time with in splendid isolation

It a whiskey to take you time with in splendid isolation,
and just enjoy all the splendid flavours.
I had it for my 60th birthday it's the best whiskey I've ever had

21st August 2013


Fantastic whiskey. If you drink Irish pure, you must try this.

11th April 2013

A Shining Star

A must-taste for all those who think that Irish Whiskeys are soft and overly consensual. Fantasticly original taste and richness.

11th February 2013


This gives Midleton a run for it's money

11th November 2012


Quite simply the best Irish Whiskey I have ever tasted. Single pot still at its finest.

31st October 2012


There is nothing out there that is similar to this, this is truly unique and has knocked red breast off my number 1 whiskey
