Powers Signature Release Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey (700ml)

Reduced from $135.00
$125. 00
$1500.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
This is a Sherried version from Powers, matured in x Bourbon barrels before a finishing period in Oloroso casks for added richness.

Tasting note: Brilliant brassy gold. Opening scents reveal fresh sliced fruit cake with a splash of brandy cream. 3-5 minutes air contact conjures suggestions of peel heavy marmalade and a whiff of pepper while highlighting sweeter scents of honey, vanilla custard, dusted cocoa and stewed apples. A silky, warming whiskey; the mid palate offers buttery, grainy flavours with intensifying fruit sweetness; finishes with hints of vanilla wafer, dried fruits and pecan showing excellent sweet-dry balance. Flavourful Irish with impressive complexity and length. Non-chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... complex: a great deal of Bourbon-style tannin digs deep assisted by the rigidity of the grain...a truly beautiful delivery: marmalade on toast and a quick burst of spices.... it is the combination of tannin and barley which sparks off a fabulously juicy phase.

This Sherry-finished Irish whiskey has a vanilla and honey fragrance, with hints of white flowers and fresh basil. The silky palate echoes the vanilla and honey, plus juicy pear and finishing with dark chocolate and clove. Add a splash of water to soften the potent alcohol heat and watch the flavor profile subtly shift: more pear appears, alongside hints of white flowers and white peach, finishing with white chocolate and nutmeg.
